This is Val’s Barrels of Fun quilt and the fabric collection is called Monkey Around, it full of cute sock monkey images. The pattern can be found in Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Simple Quilts & Sewing. I used the panto Flirtatious as they look like little bananas!
Val brought a very nice chocolate Minkie Dots, the real stuff, and it worked beautifully on the back of this quilt.
We have been getting a lot of snow and yesterday morning there was a break in the clouds so I quickly shovelled and swept off the rink to get a few pictures. It is now all covered up again and the forecast is for snow for the next two days. I’m been making progress on my Metro Hoops, I have 12 block made so far so over half way there!
I thought this post would be a good opportunity to share this cute picture of my nephew. My friend Robin makes the cutest Sock Monkey hats and I bought one from her to give to my nephew for his first birthday. So cute!
