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!
