    Sock monkey quilt!

    I got this fabric at Joann's several months ago. I wish I'd gotten enough for several quilts. I think it's just the cutest!

    Pattern: 4 patch from Quilts for Kids http://www.quiltsforkids.org/pattern...quilt-pattern/ The fabric requirements don't call for one yard of each print, but that's what I do to get the backing too.

    Fabric: Joann's - one yard of each print makes the top and the backing. You have to play with it to get the backing to work, but I like that the entire thing is from 3 yards.

    Binding: a package of satin blanket binding. I usually self-bind a quilt (pulling the backing over and sewing it down) so this was a stretch for me. THe satin made it more of a challenge and the wider width did, too. I had to watch a bit of this tutorial - go do that step - come back and watch a bit more - go do that bit.... It's not the first one I've put on, but it's been a while. http://sewfunwiththesecretcloset.blo...e-binding.html

    So many quilts, so little time.

    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    You just can't go wrong with sock monkeys. I may be as old as the hills on Granny's chest but I still remember the one I had when I was knee high to a grasshopper! This quilt is just as cute as can be!

    I have that green fabric! Love how you put it with the monkey fabric and made a quilt a kid would love.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Great project! Lucky for the one to get this! I would love to know the dimensions on finished qquilt. I make quilts for childrens hospitals and always like to know what size others make.
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.
