True Confession

I've got to get the monkey off my back. As a mother of a toddler boy, there's just not adorable, precious clothing & fabric for boys, so when I find something I love, I hoard. So I took the Malibu Monkey fabric out of the store & I've been petting it everyday. I could not decide what pattern would feature the fabric the best, so I kept it intact & used the width of the fabric as a panel and put charm squares around. Voila. Luna actually ended up making this fun quilt for Harry.









Okay, I can now let go....I've gone through a twelve step program so I'm putting the rest of the Malibu back in the store. Mothers, grandmothers of boys, I don't know what you're waiting for, this is as cute as it gets. These little monkeys are happy. Please give them a good home. Should we talk about my Johnny & Buck obsession of 2006? I think not, I'm still not over it. If you need any, let me know :-). My little monkey running off.... I think he likes it!

  5. I love that Johnny and Buck fabric. I've got some in cotton and cotton flannel. Its darling. Not sure what I'll do with it though. I only have a 13 year old boy. But I do make lots of baby quilts.
