A friend of mine that I've known since first grade is having her first baby! I started this a few days ago when I realized the shower was coming up. All of the sock monkey and mixers on the front are from stash (I got this cool grab bag from the Fat Quarter shop a while back...I had about 1/3 of a yard of something like 6 different sock monkey fabrics in it, from the 5 Monkeys line). I purchased an Ikea full sheet for the backing (actually my brother bought it for me, score!) and some solid blue for the binding. I've never used a solid color binding before but I think it worked out well because the front is so busy and it looks good next to the brown polka dot border! This is also the first time I've done a pieced back (the first pic)!  The shower is tomorrow, I hope she likes it! Grin

Yeah I guess it could be either, I really do like how the "back" turned out with the green fabric Smiley
