Finished Monkey Quilt

I'm happy to share another finished quilt!

I finished the top a while back, and sent it to Natalia for quilting a few weeks ago.

After it came back, it took me a little while to get the binding complete, as I was working on finishing up my king size quilt.

It's too big to get a good photo on the backyard fence (it's about 65" x 90"), so my girl and I went to the playground down the street to take photos. I didn't take clips or anything, she's holding it up by herself in these pictures and I was hurrying fast to get the photos.

Here's a closeup of the monkey quilting done by Natalia:

Isn't it cute? Can you see the bananas? 

I'm going to be finishing up at least one more quilt this week, and I'll maybe do another "quilt blocks" blog post seeing as how I started a scrappy trip-along quilt this past week. My kids have no school this week so we're planning some day trips and hope to keep everyone busy and happy. Hope your February is going well!

Your piecing and pattern is adorable and so is that quilting. So playful and creative!

I love the way you do the backs with the additional color and quilting. Do you have a tutorial or instructions on how you do it? You have inspired me!

Vicki,

That is a huge quilt. I have been to the playground and know how tall it is.

Thats my cute baby girl too. Give all the kids from their TimPa.
