More Quilts and a Sock Monkey

This growth chart is from a tutorial over at Emily's blog. I used the leftover pieces from Dylan's previous Eye Spy quilt for the squares. Dylan will be taking this back home with him so Mommy can write his heights in and I will embroider them on when I go back to visit.
Here is a fuller view of the chart, it is 72 inches long. I just finished Vincent the sock monkey last night. I had purchased the work socks last summer (?) at a flea market in Binghamton for a great price, ran across them while cleaning and sorting so I decided Dylan needed another monkey. The instructions for the monkey are here.
And here is the Sesame Street panel I quilted. The back is all-over Cookie Monster faces in blue. I decided it needed to be flannel and it sure is soft! All of Dylan's presents are here waiting for him. He arrives later this afternoon. It's his first plane ride, hope he does well for the 4 hour flight!
