Such cuteness! I sent the monkey quilt to a dear friend's first grandchild. I love getting pictures of my quilts in action.

How adorable! And a cute quilt too!

I got a similar picture from the last baby quilt I made (an owl quilt). That's one of the best type of thank yous!

I know what you mean, every time I see my granddaughter with her quilt, it just makes me feel good inside! Very cute quilt.

Darling quilt and baby.

I love to see my sewing in action! As part of one of our Secret Santa Swaps I sent Trish a stuffed giraffe for her granddaughter Layla. We are also friends on Facebook and I see the giraffe show up in random pictures with Layla. Things like that make my heart happy. It tends to make up for the unappreciated gifts.

The monkey quilt is adorable! The applique over the piecing is a great idea.

What a nice picture for your efforts. It won't be long and he is going to be crawling to get to that monkey and banana.

How sweet. He looks like he is talking to the monkey about the wonderful quilt that you made him :)
