Going Bananas!

Going Bananas anyone? Actually this is the name of the quilting motif used for this adorable quilt. I've had the design but never a chance to use it until Carol requested it. Can you see the monkeys and bananas? Dang cute!



This photo isn't the best and did turn on me when loading it. The backing of this sweet quilt is minke and so soft!



The top is a simple one with both fun monkey and banana novelty prints and now lots texture.

Perfect motif for those fun sock monkeys in the fabric--and the bananas. What a great kid's quilt!

That fabric of the sock monkeys is so dang cute and the quilt is adorable - great job on the quilting - fits the quilt perfectly. I just gave a little visitor we had last weekend a purple sock monkey I found at Target - she loved it and loves purple, lol.

Very cute and what a perfect motif! Which way do you load minkee~ selvage to the rollers, or cut ends to the rollers? I've heard it makes a big difference but can never remember which way is which! ;-)

Minke is the best backing for a cuddle quilt...my sister in law calls it polyester lithium :)

The quilting looks wonderful--what a bright and fun and irresistible quilt!

What a great quilting pattern and just perfect for that quilt.

Cheryl said...

I've heard minke is hard to put on the back of a quilt. I'll have to pick your brain on how you do it. This quilt is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

Stray Stitches said...

What a cute quilt and the quilting design was the perfect selection.

Lori said...

I just love the cute monkeys and bananas. The minkee on the back will make that a fabulous quilt for a little one. I want to snuggle in it.

LuAnn said...
