I have never quilted or even posted on this board before but I had to try my hand to the mug rug, which I am now addicted to and I knocked this one up over 2 days.  (Bf was sleeping after a night shift otherwise it would have been quicker!)

It's for my friend who works very hard and absolutely loves monkeys so I think she will like having this around the office for her tea and biscuits heeehee!  I haven't ever done patchwork either and it was very fun and easier than expected.  I just used off cut pieces to make this one.

You can see the quilting better on the back, I just used a zig zag stitch as I thought it has quite a cute effect with the fabrics I used.

Close up of the cute monkey fabric, I added the sequins as I forgot the monkeys were smaller than the bits I already cut and I wanted to add a bit of extra sparkle but not so much so that you couldn't use it.

Who doesn't love shiny monkeys?!  I'll bet your friend loves it!

There's one in every family, and I'm an only child.
