YES, we are still at Amy’s Quilt Festival…
On to QUILT #2!! Yup…you heard right!! With Amy’s new TWO Quilt rule…Bloggers can enter two quilts as long as they are in different categories and have their own separate posts! Hence…post number TWO!
Don’t cha’ think, that the Monkey Quilt is just too dang cute not to be entered in the BABY CATEGORY!
This one is hot off the press…
It was machine pieced and machine quilted..the appliquéd monkey was needle turned and then machine stitched for stability. I hand embroidered the ‘Five Little Monkey’s’ Poem on the outside border. I chose to PRINT the verse rather than go with the handwritten verse that was in the pattern. (Young child can’t read handwriting…) I also went with the poem/chant that I use to teach my Grade One class. It is slightly different than the one in the pattern (when I teach the whole chant to my grandson I don’t want to screw up the verse! Can’t you just hear it? “You messed up AGAIN Grammy!!”..:o}}. I raw edged stitched ‘mock buttons’ onto the monkey’s tummy (safer than real buttons!)
I love this sweet quilt and can hardly wait to cover my wee grandson with it…in THREE MORE WEEKS…give or take a few days!! (insert happy dance!!)
