What are you most proud of? That it came out beautifully. I found a flannel that has monkeys in banana boats for the backing, which is perfect as my son-in-law in in the Navy.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and have fun with it. Don't be afraid to work with other fabrics in a quilt besides cotton and flannel. I will be working on a few baby quilts next year for a friend incorporating clothing from each of her 3 babies. Also plan to do one for my grandson. This year he will be getting a toddler bed to put his monkey quilt on.

I like the idea of 'making a quilt with different textures. You have me thinking as grandchild no.2 is on the way and I am looking for ideas. Thank you. PS Cute grandson ... lucky you!
