A dear friend of mine had a little boy recently.  I honestly can’t remember what I have given her over the years.  (and that is if I got around to giving her anything.  *sigh*  I am THAT person.  *double sigh*  My issues could definitely fill this blog daily from now until eternity… :-) )  In any case, I was really excited when she had a little boy because it gave me a chance to use the Sock Monkey fabric from Moda!

It’s a little quilt. Just the right size for a crib or stroller cover up. Or for a little tummy time on the floor. Easy to throw in the diaper bag or stroller. I didn’t want it to be too large. I hope that she can use it and enjoy it. I enjoyed making it. I stole the idea from my friend, Elena. (Who will be having her little boy today! Of course, I can’t give a quilter a quilt…so who knows what I’ll give her!)  My quilt has no plan.  No rhyme or reason.  Just some cute fabric cut into random sized rectangles and sewn together.  Probably not the best approach, but remember, I am not really a quilter.  Just a sewist that sometimes feels like quilting! :D

All the sock monkey fabrics are in my here in my shop.  And I’ve also started a section on my website for boys fabrics.  It is not all-inclusive, but it’s a nice place to start!

  1. Love them monkeys! Cute quilt! Good to know I’m not alone… I’m THAT person too. Four friends just had babies and I haven’t sewn a single thing yet. *sigh*

  2. So cute! And I must say, I’m glad I’m not the only one – I owe so many gifts that most of the babies have baby brothers or sisters that haven’t gotten gifts yet either!

  3. Very cute! Oh and I’m “that person” too LOL

  4. SO cute~! Sock Monkey fabric is such a classic!

  5. So…when I first read this post, I was hoping that I was “that” dear friend! :) I LOVE the sock monkey quilt! It’s the perfect size, and the fabric is unique and adorable! Thank you! YOU are dear! :)

  6. Good to see what you have made with the fabric. I bought some a few weeks ago but haven’t made anything with it yet. I need to make something for my ‘little’ boy…unfortunately my ‘little’ boy is 15 and 5’10 so I may have to make mine a bit bigger!! Good quilt.

  7. Love it! I am also a “sewist” that sometimes quilts. I’m also a knitter that sometimes crochets. This is darling, thank you for sharing!
