My first grandson's room was all decked out in a green and brown monkey theme. All excited for the new challenge, I decided to design my own quilt. The "Monkey See, Monkey Do" quilt features photos of each family member on the tummy of a monkey. To blend in with the color scheme, all of the pictures were printed in sepia tone. The monkeys sit on 3-D leaves or swing from 3-D vines and have floppy legs:
The "Monkey See, Monkey Do" quilt was made to be displayed on a wall, so those 3-D vines were never a danger to the baby.
Yellow and gray chevrons was the theme for my second grandson's room. The modern geometrics called for a simpler quilt, so I opted to use Amy Bradley's "The Hoots" pattern for this one-of-a-kind quilt. This time, the photos are featured on the tummies of owls; and to coordinate with the color scheme, the photos were printed in black and white.
So, whether it's for a new arrival, a special anniversary or a milestone birthday, consider making a photo quilt for that one-of-a-kind keepsake gift.
