The Wigglin' Monkeys


I am feeling good about my accomplishments again. I seem to go in streaks of finishing a bunch of things and then just working on lots of things at once and not finishing any.  This Wiggle Time has monkey fabric for the background and the yellow and brown were scraps left from other projects.  


 This design is more elongated than my favorite hook swirl, but is still very fun and quick to do. 


Monkeys are wiggling their way onto the back also.  They will also wiggle their way to Project Linus for the H2H drive.   

This is another of my 2nd quarter goals for FAL, which brings my total done to 4 already!


Last Wednesday a friend came over to help me go through my bin of neutral scraps to make another string quilt sewn on phonebook pages.  Here is her handi work...  As she pressed I had her hang them onto a clothes drying rack.  Now mind you, this didn't even make a teeny dent in my bin!


Here is my 12 blocks I managed to get done after I cut a bunch of different sizes of squares for other projects. 

Here is my total since Wednesday-30 blocks.

  5. I am humbled by the size of your scrap stash! That speaks to many many quilts finished before I found you online :) I shouldn't be surprised, you're a lean, mean, quilting machine! This monkey quilt is darling, as usual.

  6. I love the monkey quilt; makes me think of the Five Little Monkeys book I used to read to the kids. You are really quilting up a storm! I, on the other hand, have been shopping up a storm. I need to start making, now that I'm home!

  7. Send some mojo my way! I have been feeling quite underwhelmed by my recent progress. Love the monkey quilt (of course) but string quilts are my favorite. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  10. The monkeys are so cute! Some little guy is going to love that quilt! You definitely do have a lot of neutral strings. I have been running out of those, and need more, of all things!

  11. Have I ever told you I'm afraid of monkeys? Especially the flying ones in the Wizard of Oz... (just thought I'd share that :) Your monkeys are cute, so I guess I'm okay with quilt monkeys!

  12. Congratulations on your finish! The monkey quilt is adorable. I love the idea of ironing fabric and using the clothes dryer to hang them! Yet another way to take up more of the house, Martin may kill me!
