Sock Monkey crib quilt pattern is here!

The Sock Monkey crib quilt pattern is easily the most popular quilt I’ve ever made on this blog. Two years after I made it, the blog post is still among the top 10 posts viewed every day and last week alone I got two requests to share my pattern. Well it’s finally here. I finished […]

New baby, new junlge crib quilt design

I’m going to have a new nephew in a couple months so that means it is baby quilt time. My very practical sister who is already thinking ahead to baby number two, chose a jungle theme for the nursery since it is gender neutral.

The monkey baby quilt is taking shape
