    Hi vicki, I did try & put my webshots into my profile but couldn't figure it out. I do have it in my signature, if you copy & paste it, you can see some of my quilts.

    It looks like your family is expanding. :D The inner border almost looks like a rope with the fabric you chose. Why is it the simple quilts can looks so nice with the right choice in fabrics?

    Nice job. It's colorful and ALIVE! Are you selling or giving them away? Our hospital gift shop sells mine for just $1 commission. I've never had one last there for over a week, and I get requests for special colors. This whole thing started as a quest to use up baby-type flannel scraps. About 16 quilts, later, I"m slowly making a dent! S.

    I love the quilt! You'll have to teach that grandbaby the rhyme about 5 Little Monkeys Jumpin' On the Bed! Was that your inspiration for the monkeys? (If you don't know about the 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, I'll be glad to send it to you. I teach preschool!)

    This 'signature' quilt is one that I made for my daughter for her wedding last January. When she was a little girl, I made the majority of her clothing. I was the supervisor in a large fabric store, and I sewed the model clothing, especially for children. I kept most of the scraps. Then i saved those scraps carefully for the next several years. When she got married, I went through old photo albums to find photos of her wearing those little dresses. Then I also scrapbooked the photos, using the fabric pictured in the dress, also using red, her favorite color. When she opened the quilt, she immediately recognized what the majority of the fabric came from. Then the scrapbook with it was the icing on the cake. To a casual eye, one may think that this is just a hit-n-miss scrap quilt, but to us, it's memories.

    And to your "monkey's" question, of course I know the song. This wonderful daughter mentioned above is my youngest, after 3 older brothers, plus I also have 3 step children. (5 grandchildren so far). Sara
