    "So Excited" Finally finished my peek -a- boo monkey quilt

    Well ladies,
    I finally finished it...It is totally done. This is the first quilt I have totally finished. I am pretty pleased with it. I love the front for sure. The back, not as much, but it is ok. If I had it to do over again, I would use just one fabric for the back. But all in all I am happy with it. Even my first binding job turned out pretty good. I am so excited, I can't wait until the baby shower to give it to her.

    The quilting pattern I did on the outer border, I kinda just drew it and put it on there. I just did not know what else to do. I think it looks ok.

    Thanks again to all of you for your help and great comments of encouragement. I hope to be posting more projects here in the near future.

            Carol, I loved what you did with your quilt and as my husband loves, loves, loves, monkeys in any shape, I showed him your quilt. He absolutely loved it and asked me when I could make him one for him! Too funny! He thinks if you buy a card for anyone, for any occasion it should have a monkey on it! LOL He's a crazy man. Anyway, you did a great job. Hugs, Jan

                Thanks everyone...Like I said before, it is not perfect by no means, but I am real happy with the out come. I am sure that I
                learned a few things in the process(like the back.. LOL). Now to get some of my other ones finished up. I have a rag quilt 75% done...going to work on that next and get it finished.

                        I still say that is one of the cutest quilts I have ever seen. I'm sure the receiver will love it too!

                            Carol that is one of the cutest quilts. You did a great job on it. It should be the hit of the shower and definitely a keepsake.

                              Carol, like Mary said, that quilt will be the hit of the shower! Wonderful job, and I love your vine and leaf quilting on the border - adorable!
