Funky Monkey Baby Quilt

This is the quilt that I made for my grandson, Daniel. His bedroom is painted blue and decorated with monkeys. So I bought Modas funky monkey fabric and made a trip around the world quilt. 

There was probably a faster way to do this quilt, but I wanted to fussy cut the monkeys.  So I cut all 273 squares individually and arranged them on a design wall and then sewed them together. 


I put in a few bananas.



I used a flannel backing on the quilt and machine quilted it on my Bernina. This stitch is one used by a friend who machine quilts on her Bernina, too.


I like to machine quilt, but I'm not good at sewing a straight line so this is how I set my Bernina to do this stitch.  
 

Here's Daniel with his new quilt. 



Thanks for stopping by today!
