I quilted it in an all over meander, and I tried very very hard not to sew over any monkey faces, but alas there were a couple of the little ones that I just wasn't quick enough to avoid. But I don't think I went over any of the bigger monkeys.
Sharla did a good job in making sure the bigger monkeys we always facing the same direction. It is one of the few quilts that had a definite top and bottom, so I had to be careful of where I place the label so it wouldn't be upside down.
I used Signature's Persian Red thread, which looks really good, it wasn't an exact match of the reds, but then there were a couple of different shades of red. I love the red/white dotty fabric she picked for the back, it is cheerful and fun. I will say I think this might be Sharla's most favorite quilt to date and it might have something to do with that she has been called "monkey" since she was a child. First our dad called her that, and now my nephew has picked up on it and uses it.
