Playing Around with Funky Monkey

This week has seen another quilt finished and off to its new home. There is a bit of history to this one that I'm happy to share.
When Moda were having their challenge last year, I decided to give it a go but I never finished the entry and missed out on meeting the deadline. The unfinished quilt went into my UFO pile to be remembered every now and again.

I decide when looking at my UFO projects what could be achievable to finish as a birthday gift. This one popped into my head as it was mostly finished and had some great colors for a little girl. The Tractor Derby quilt was made for her little brother. It was only fitting that his big sister get one of her own.

It was really easy to piece together and the quilt top is made from charm squares cut into tumbler blocks. The pattern came from the Moda Bakeshop blog of course. I used Erin Michael's Funky Monkey range for Moda fabrics. There are 5 charm packs in this quilt top.
I just followed the pattern and Eco quilted the quilt using the edge of my walking foot around all the tumbler blocks. My binding was a candy pink solid.
