Cheeky Monkeys - all finished!

A friend became a first time Grandmother last year & is absolutely besotted with her grandson. This is the quilt I made for her to give to him - used the pattern "Going Bananas" by Natalie Ross of In Stitches. Used a layer cake for the background fabrics and fabric from my stash for the monkeys.  Blanket stitch appliqued and machine quilted in big stippling.

The back - I like to use up fabric from the front & again from the stash - still a long way to go with using up fabric - HofM maintains I won't live long enough to go through it all.  I'll give it a good go or maybe I just won't leave this mortal coil UNTIL it's all gone!  If I figure out how to do that I'll let you all know & Quilt Shops will prosper!!!

Close up of the monkeys - they are so cute.
