10 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off and broke his head. Momma called the doctor and the doctor said, 'No more monkeys jumping on the bed!'
Well, I have the remaining 9 monkeys caught on the cutest quilt top ever! Cindy at Quilt Doodle Doodles needed some pattern testers for an adorable baby quilt with sock monkeys. I went bananas and shot her an email begging right away. You see, I have a weakness for sock monkeys. They are just so cute!
|Original and the tissue tracing|
|The pieces all fit, even separated.|
|The copy I made from the plastic sleeved pieces.|
|Monkeys say Wahoo!!|
Rather than creating my sashing from dozens of little squares, I cheated and sewed the strips together. Then cut the strips into the right size rows. Stitch those together to create the right sizes and voila I had super fast sashing.
I loved putting the top together. Adding bright colors to sock monkeys just delighted me. I smiled the whole time. Borders went on easy. I was done. Yeah!!!
I actually still need to stitch the monkeys eyes and mouths but the assembly is completed. I'm in love!
I think my sock monkey pets are happy too!
