Here is the quilt top that I made for our newest grandson coming this April. The colors are brighter than in the photo. I will back it with green Minky and bind it with two-toned brown polka dots.

Thanks, Linda, for urging me on.

Adorable! Perfect for a little guy. Brown Polka dots will be cute for the binding.
Did you use a kit?

Thanks, everyone. Marsha, it wasn't a kit. The book it's in is called Quilting for Baby by Jeanne Stauffer & Sandra L. Hatch. Lots of fun baby quilts, some really simple, others more complicated. I'll post a better picture after it's quilted and bound. What looks like a solid cream in the photo is actually tiny green polka dots on a cream background.

Did you have the book for this one? I look at it and think, 'How hard can it be?' because once you see a picture and have the idea, I really think I can cut out the simple monkey shapes. I always wonder though, if there are tips or tricks or patterns in a book I'll be missing, and Amazon has a chewed used copy for ten bucks. How exactly did you do the eyes?

RE: Peekaboo Monkeys

Petalpatsy, the eyes are simply white ovals (kind of) with black circles (kind of). Before you put all the strips together, all the monkey tails, the headless monkey's feet and the head of the topmost middle monkey are applied to the strips so that the body parts go into the seam allowance. Then the strips are sewn together. Then the monkey body parts are added. I appliqued around each part (including eye whites and pupils). I did not applique where the body parts went into the seam allowance or when an ear, for instance, went behind the head. In other words, every raw edge was blanket stitched. One strand of embroidery floss was used for eyebrows, two eye lashes each eye, mouth and nose.

I borrowed the book from a neighbor. It is full of cute baby quilts, certainly worth $10 if it's not too chewed up.
