An unexpected day

What choice did I have, with my family out of town and no car pool to work?  I made a quilt for my nephew Will, who is about to turn 1.  Still have to do the binding...
I bought this monkey fabric a while ago, thinking it would be great for a baby boy quilt.  Love that retro 70's print (it's from the Riley Collection by Anna Griffin, Windham fabrics).  The wavy blue is from the same collection.  I don't know what the green is, but the stripes and dots are Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane.  The back is Kona solid Charcoal.  Overall pattern is modified just a bit from a "Fun Quilts" free pattern.  The applique initials are my own design.  Simple straight line quilting made a bit wonky.
