I have three nephews, so I don't get to work with little girl stuff very often. So you can imagine how pleased I was to be able to make a girlie quilt! I finished the Monkey Quilt last weekend, this is for the same person, who is gifting them to co-workers who are due very soon.

I had a lovely jelly roll and charm pack set in the same fabric line that had just been hanging around with no specific purpose. They worked out great for this!

I didn't have an actual pattern, but combined two different things I wanted to do with the charm packs and jelly roll and did a bit of math beforehand to decide that I needed to add a 3 inch inner border to get the correct final dimensions that I was after. I decided on solid white for that part to have a calm place for the eye to rest!

I completed this whole quilt in less than 24 hours. (I mean, it probably took me 8-10 hours total, but it was over a 24 hour period)









And here is what I started with, the binding and backing are not from the same line but they worked out well!

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I make a lot of things featuring trucks and race cars. I have a rocket ship quilt to make for the middle guy, at least that's something different!

It worked out great! I think the finished size was about 40 x 48, but you could do more blocks or more borders for larger than a baby sized quilt. The inner border is 3 inch strips, the outer border is 5 inch strips, and using the charm pack + jelly roll for the squares, each block is 8.5 inches finished
