funky monkeys

Another quilt that I made in preparation for our trip to India in June. It is for a friend’s toddler.

He seemed to like their funny faces and promptly settled in for his afternoon nap in the living room… of course that game didn’t last for long ^_^

I used organic cotton that I found at Jo-ann’s for the sashing. I love the texture and feel of it but it frays easily.

~Block pattern from Paper Piecing with Alex Anderson book.
Even though I was new to paper-piecing, the instructions were very simple and easy to understand with clear pictures.

Fabric is “5 Funky monkeys” by Erin Michael for Moda.
By the way, have you visited Moda Bake shop? They have the most scrumptious recipes to test drive!

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at what peeps are up to (* u *)

I can't imagine any toddler (or adult) not wanting to nap under that very cute quilt. I love JoAnn's organic cotton. I've used the chocolate brown.

This is really cute. I've always thought a sock monkey quilt would be fun to work on. Love yours.

What a darling quilt! I played with a sock monkey as a child. It's so fun to see them back again. :)
