Of course I am making quilts and some cute baby items.
Here is the Sock Monkey Quilt. I actually bought this fabric 2 years ago when I went to the Lancaster Quilt Show. My DIL loves sock monkeys and I purchased and held onto it for this exact occasion. I wasn't sure what design to use until a lady came into the sewing store and was showing me her quilts used to highlight a special fabric - a light bulb went off in my head and I knew this was the layout I needed for this fabric.
Yep I Know that center block looks a little scary! For all you quilters out there, I did not do free motion quilting all over this quilt because I did not want to take away from the focus fabric. I just did stitch in the ditch on the railfence squares and a diagonal X on the monkeys and was quite happy with the results. And here is how I wrapped the gift; I actually made an embroidered gift tag.
