Monkeying Around!

My mother is leading the Charity committee for our guild this year. I am so lucky she is doing this because whatever she leads--she is great at it!  

These are two of her quilts that she is donating to a wonderful cause through our guild. I usually get to quilt pieces that she will donate.

This turns out to be a win for every one. She gets her quilts quilted. I get to practice. And a child will be happy to receive these.

Doing squares all over a quilt is not as easy as I thought! This is a good brain exercise!!

I love how she strip pieced the backs as well.

FYI! The monkey fabric is a cut up fabric shower curtain! What a great re-purpose!

This one is done with Angela Walters recent video clip to practice her technique of  the Swirl Hook Video Tutorial. Which made this quilt more feminine looking.

This was done with all "Square in a Square" making it look more masculine for a boy.

Today is day two for the "See You In September" Blog Hop!
Here is who is posting today!

Everyone Deserves a Quilt

Till We Quilt Again,


  1. This is sew adorable! Lucky baby who receives this quilt. My daughter chose a baby jungle animal theme for her nursery for my first grand-darling this year and my grand baby loves looking at the baby animal faces. Monkeys are a favorite.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a kind word and a thread trail back to your quilty goodness. I will be back soon for more inspiration ... :) Pat

  2. That monkey fabric is so cute!! The square quilting really does make it more boyish. I love the pieced backing too.

  3. So fun! I love the backing almost as much as the front. Tell your mother, 'Well done!' And you, too, for the quilting :)

  4. I'm totally in love with those monkeys! blessings, marlene
