Tarzan! {A Finished Quilt}

Oh Hi! It's been a while but I have a good excuse...
These three monkeys (plus monkey) have kept me pretty busy these last 4 months. Yes they are 4 months old as of yesterday. Time is flying fast. (background quilt from my friend Sarah for those inquiring minds).

Several months ago I made a baby quilt for my husband's friend's new baby. We gifted the quilt at Christmas time (aka mid Janurary) and the little guy is now 6 months old.

I made some donut blocks with a bunch of greens and blues and gray background. Total boy quilt.
PS. It's fun to now have a crib with which to display baby quilts

I backed it with hedgies (as you do) and quilted in an all over figure 8 design. 

I couldn't think of a name for this one until after we gifted it. The boy's name is Carson and when his parents were telling the dad's boss what his name was he misheard them and thought they said Tarzan! No one bothered to correct him so now this guy will think they named their son Tarzan for all eternity. Amazing. These colors are quite fitting for baby Tarzan.

 Monkey makes another appearance!
