Baby Quilt is ready for the new baby

My newest grandson is due in about 6 weeks and his quilt is all ready for him.  The label I've put on all of my grandchildren's quilts is a little muslin heart with a colored heart on top. I'll write his name and birth date and my name on it when he finally arrives.  It's always exciting to have a new baby in the family.
My daughter didn't want traditional blue for his quilt so we chose the lime green, aqua and brown. There are monkeys in the white print. And the quilter added monkeys on vines in the quilting. Can you see the monkey face in the last photo? And the backing is a lime green dotted Minkee. It's very soft and cuddly.

I've linked up to Design Wall Monday at: http://www.patchworktimes.com/   See what other quilters are working on this week.
