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!

When I look back through my years of quilting photos, my favorite ones are of the quilt with the new quilt owner. They can't be beat and they trigger the most memories.
Sweet monkey quilt and an even sweeter grandson!
