A Barrel of Monkeys…

Last week seemed like a barrel of monkeys with all the activities

that were going on but I am back on track this week.

Lynn created this adorable Sock Monkey quilt.

The fabrics in this quilt are so much fun; Lynn always has really

cool fabric.  These sock monkeys are no exception.

Lynn decided that she wanted an all over design so we went with

“Quirky.” What a great name for a  design and it fits the monkeys perfectly.

How can you not love these critters? Even the backing shouts monkeys.

When I loaded this quilt on the frame, I mistakenly put the backing on

the front. I had to take it off and reload it once again. Whose acting like

a monkey now?

It is a pieced backing so it will seem as if the receipent is getting 2 quilts in one.

Here is the backing. We used a light yellow polyester thread for the

front and the back of this quilt. There are alot of different colors so the

yellow blends well with all of them.

Here is  another quilt that Lynn created. She is quite the creative

quilting force.

Lynn chose “Happy Times.” It adds nice texture and movement

to the rectangular shapes of the quilt top.

The backing consisted of a blue fabric and the stitching shows up nicely.

Can you see the string of pearls on the fabric?

Karen made this quilt at a local quilt shop. It was a BOM Quilt

with lots of piecing in it. The colors are really soft and beautiful.

This section of the outer border shows up the quilting nicely. Karen chose

“Celtic Vine” as her all over pattern; a taupe polyester thread was used as well.

The taupe blends with all the colors yet isn’t too loud for the quilt.

Here is the backing fabric, although a little dark.

classy design  that works well with alot of designs.

Have a great week!

    Love your Sock Monkey quilt Lynn. The wonky block done in red and yellow on the quilt front was such a great way to highlight your sock monkey fabrics!

    Both are lovely quilts – and I think the quilting designs compliment both so well!

    I really love the sock monkeys! I need to find some of that banana fabric – too cute!
