Here it goes...
|Sewing the last line. It feels so good!|
|Ironing the binding|
|This is my official binding sewing chair. I can prop my feet up and have the quilt at the right level. My eyes are getting bad! (this was before I got sick. Notice there are no more pictures after this one of me.)|
|Back...I wanted to piece it. I love the yearbook fabric at the bottom. It's so cute with all the monkey portraits.|
|"Funky Monkey, My Little Monkey"|
Made with all my <3
Evan William Maddison

(the number 2 signifies that he was 2 years old when I made the quilt)
|Evan loves his monkeys!|
|Finally where it belongs...on his bed!|
|I made this curtain valance a while ago. I used the actual curtains from his nursery decor. I'm hoping to reuse them for a long time! They have the insulated lining on them. My mom made them when she was here after Evan was born.|
|I made this a bit ago as well. I had a bunch of left over scraps. My next project is to maybe cover the lamp shades in monkeys.|
I think this turned out really nice. I'm glad I decided to do monochromatic and mixed blocks. It makes it interesting and fun. I learned a lot about making a pattern. I definitely have to measure, measure, measure and measure again.It's fun to measure and plan, but usually it just comes out how it's going to come out.
I already know my next projects. A bed runner for my mother-in-law, a king sized quilt for Marc & I and a play size quilt for my friend's daughter. I have a whole list of other smaller items. We'll see how they get finished!
Happy 2012. May it be the best yet!
