Pillow and Quilted Blanket for My Grandson

Pillow, quilt and monkey for my grandson

Here are the pillow and quilted blanket I recently finished for my grandson’s rocking chair.  The pattern is one I designed and had printed through Spoonflower.com.  The pillow is made from two printed squares of cotton ultra which were sewn together and stuffed with polyester fill.  The quilt is made from a meter of 54 inch polyester minky which is the softest material I have ever sewn.  The stuffed animal monkey was a gift from a good friend.  I don’t think she will mind if I pass it on to my grandson.  I’m planning on making another pillow/quilt for the newest female member of the extended family. That pattern will be different.Monkey design on quilt

  1. Mindy is so soft, Claremary. I just love how it feels. I can always use another cousin by the way. That’s what we all are anyhow, isn’t it?
    Love cuz,
    Mollie 😀

  2. “Minky reminds me of Petter Sellers in the “Pink Panther”. He asks the organ girder, “Is that your minkey?” and of course, the man has no idea what he’s talking about. I’ll have to check out the soft polyester minky and I really love the finished pillow and blanket. Can I join your extended family, please? Clare
