Sock Monkey Finish

 Can I just tell you about how thrilled I am
to be able to sew in my hidey hole again??!!
My room isn't quite finished,
but it is all set up for sewing.
And sewing I'm doing!

My soul is singing Hallelujah!

The second kit is finished and ready to give to my friend.
Years ago I made a sock monkey quilt for my bestest girl friend
and saved the remaining fabric thinking I would make a baby quilt
for her when she became a grandmother.

That day has come.
Her grandson was born at 30 weeks and was in the NICU
for over a month.
He is home and is doing really well
and his Gigi was thrilled to finally meet him and hold him.
It was time to make the quilt for her.

I had the three sock monkey fabrics in the bag
and pulled the rest from my stash.


There is something I just love about making quilts with triangle pieces.
It's fun to play with the placement of the fabrics
and see the quilt come together.

The three outer fabrics are the leftovers from my friends quilt.
They are interspersed among the triangles, too.
The backing was pieced from the remaining fabrics, 
plus a different piece I had in my stash.

This is all the fabric I have left.
These scraps will be cut into usable sizes and put away.
The photo below shows how much binding was left
after finishing the quilt.

Onto the next project!
Happy Quilting!

Wow!...way to progress through those kits lickety-split! This one has turned out really great looking also. I’ll bet new Granny really loves it. Those bits of leftovers look like a mugrug or a potholder or hotpad or such...just sayin’. Looking forward to your next finish.
