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.
