a start and a finish

First of all, I need to let you know that there is a giveaway going on at Our Busy Little Bunch

Isn't that the cutest fabric!?!?!?

Now...  I have finished lil' monkey's quilt top.  I am waiting on the backing fabric to come in to see if I will be able to roll it up and put it through my machine. (fingers crossed)!!!  The top is 66" x 77".  He has a full size captain's bed, so the quilt did not have to be long at all.  I just need it to tuck down on the sides about 3 or 4 inches.  I am very pleased with how it has turned out so far.

Here is the backing fabric that I am going to use.  I am probably going to piece the back with some solid red and maybe some of the other bright colors found in this fabric.

I am ready to start my next two projects as well.  Unfortunately, one of the baby quilts will you use the monkey left overs, so you will be seeing some more of those cute faces.  The other baby quilt in the works is for my brother in laws family.  I will be using Riley Blake's Sugar n Spice in the pink and green.  You can find the tutorial here  and some examples of the quilt below.

This is actually the first quilt that I made!!!

I made the same quilt for a coworker of mine.  Isn't Maci sweet!!!

I will show progress of all the quilt projects in the near future.  Wish me luck!!!
