So, I purchased it and pieced together a quilt using a few other fabric swatches I had on-hand. I haven't made a quilt in years and I was a little out of practice...add in the complexity of forming a quilt around a pre-made panel and it took a little longer than it probably should have, but I love how it turned out. As everyone quilts differently, and I am far from an expert, this isn't a full-fledged tutorial, but more of a documentation of my progress in pictures to inspire others to venture into their first quilt.
This project has inspired me to make my own applique panel quilt for my other sister-in-law's baby girl that is due in June. That project will be featured in May, hopefully- if all goes as planned. I think I've decided on an owl theme since they're relatively easy to piece together and it will be my first time doing it.
Here is my adorable monkey quilt...
