A Little Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

After a rough weekend (from which I have not entirely recovered) I'm here to share with you another finish. Yippee! I'm delighted with how it turned out too.

Here's "Monkeyshines" in the process of being quilted. (Thanks to Michele for the inspiration for the quilt name!)


This is the stitch I used for the quilting. It seemed appropriate. Used up a lot of thread though!


There was enough of this bright green I'd bought on spec, on sale, to use for backing and binding.
Ta daa! The completed quilt on my kitchen floor:


It's now in a box, ready to be shipped off to its' final destination. My poor DS will be one of the many standing in line at the Post Office this week. We have quite a stack of packages to send off. Of course they aren't all ready to go just yet. Getting them ready is the order of the day. Before we do that we have to take Mr. Reilly over to the groomer. Busy, busy, busy!

I just LOVE it. It is really and truly a Monkeyshines quilt..it almost glows it carries so much light in it and it is such fun! I'm tickled I helped name it!

Love your quilt and what a perfect name for it!

How did you fair with all the rain this past weekend? Are you close enough to the river that you have to worry about flooding?

Very cute quilting stitch--it really adds a special touch, and the quilt is a real ray of sunshine.
