Monkeying around...

I have a bunch of little blocks up on the design wall.  Yellow and green with monkeys.  That was the request for a baby quilt gift for a friend of son's lovely girl friend.  I have lots of yellow and green but I picked up some monkeys for the back and the great dots for the binding.  The monkeys are a brushed cotton.  So soft!

I still have lots of time to change the arrangement of the blocks as I make them.  I am using the really simple 4.5" squares in combination with 2.5" squares.  And we don't know if the wee baby to be is a boy or a girl so the fabric needs to be fairly gender neutral.  Baby quilts go together so fast!!!!!!!  I love it!

And the monkeys are from Deb Strain's line for Moda, Grow With Me and the dots are from Windham and were on sale!!!!  Half price!  Score!!  Have a super lovely evening!
