Monkey Quilt Blocks Done

I finished the Monkey quilt blocks tonight. They look really good up on the design wall. After work I bought some backing that works well, a cute print with similar colors as the quilt top, but more muted. I am a beginner machine quilter, and I quilt in small sections at a time, which is more manageable than wrestling with a big quilt. Tomorrow I'll assemble the four vertical rows of blocks and begin machine quilting them. I do what I call Roller Coaster quilting--wide wavy lines that look like roller coasters. It's not fancy, but it's fine for now.
