Sock monkeys!

I have admired the funky monkey fabric by Moda for such a long time. Last summer I bought a bunch of the fabric, pieced a quilt top for Isaac, stretched and basted it... and am waiting for the courage to quilt it. I am kind of a chicken when it comes to quilting things larger than a placemat; they never seem to turn out how I'd hoped. In the meantime, while procrastinating on the quilting, I made him a little pillow with the leftover fabric. I pieced and quilted the top, and bound the edges with grosgrain ribbon.

The pillow insert is a little 12x16 decorative down pillow that I picked up for $10 at Pottery Barn Kids. I'm entering the pillow in the Blogger's Pillow Party, as well as the Great SMS Pillow Contest.

  1. I love this! Very cute, and I like how you were very careful to not overwhelm with all the sock monkeys. They are well placed, and so full of character!
