Monkey Business!

 I made this quilt for my daughter, Grace, who is expecting a boy in August! (#12 for the Toblers!) I fell in love with the monkeys (Brother and Sister Design Studio) and then fell in love with the "dot to dot" (School Days by American Jane). It just makes you want to get a marker and go to town on it. The border is "Flag Day Farm by Polly Minick & Lauri Simpson. I got the red at Hobby Lobby.

I quilted it on the machine with a wavy stitch... much easier to maneuver than the "stitch in the ditch".

I love it! I will have to go to Idaho often to see it.


  1. I LOVE Sock Monkeys!!!!! & the fabric on the back! Lucky Grace; this quilt is absolutely AWESOME!

  2. Love the dot to dot fabric! so cute! and congrats on 12 :)

  3. I Love the silly little sock monkeys!...who doesn't? I'm sure Grace will love it and her cute little monkey will be reminded of his sweet Grandma for years to come.

  4. So cute!!
    And it smells so nice!!! Jason loved it, too.
    I really like the last sentence about going to Idaho frequently to see it!! :) But I think the baby might be a bigger draw than the blanket.

  5. I, too, love that Dot to Dot and had to get some for my stash! Congrats on #12.
