Go Bananas!!

Go Bananas!

I just finished George, the LePetite project for the month of July!  The fabrics I used were Wee Woodlands and Lollipop Charm Packs.  In the pattern Carrie mentions that she named the pattern after George the monkey,  because the name of the quilt block in this pattern is Monkey Wrench.


How many times do you use banana fabric in a quilt?

As I was sewing away, admiring the banana fabrics and thinking that they were a lot of fun, I realized how well they went with this quilt! Banana fabrics in a monkey quilt!  How funny is that? And I didn't even mean to do it!  Really, I didn't!  Now the search is on for some monkey or banana fabric for the backing.  I hope I can find something fun to make it all work together. My son named this quilt Go Bananas!  A perfect fit!   


More bananas!!  You can't have too many in a quilt pattern called George!

Be sure to stop by and visit Sinta and Sherri in the next few days to see the rest of the LePetite projects in the parade this month.  Thanks so much ladies for taking the time to put the parade together!  Lots of blogging fun!!

This is so cute. I have both those fabric packs too - Hmm, my poor little sick grandson could use a cuddle - thank you for some inspiration.
