Another Baby Quilt monkeying around


Jen has been on our Design Team for a few years now. We were delighted when she announced at our first retreat last March that she was pregnant and even more so when baby B was born last October. Hard to believe that a year has passed and he celebrated his first birthday earlier this month. Because I'd made Abigail a quilt, how could I not make one for B??


This is another charm pack from Adornit - this time their Buckaroo Stack in Blue. I backed it using a remnant bought at the Quilt Show this Summer (brown with tiny blue dots - perfect for this quilt!) and bound using black Michael Miller Ta Dot. Simple stippling quilting all over in white.


And when Jen mentioned that B was having a Monkey party - well, I couldn't resist making a sock monkey for him now could I??!


My two cheeky monkeys saw me making this and wanted to make their own..............more on that another day!

Must go - Ross' 40th tomorrow & his chocolate cake is baking in the oven - nothing like leaving things 'til the last minute!

So cute! Wherever did you find a Buckaroo Charm Pack? I can only find stacks and bigger cuts.
