    Monkey see, Monkey do...............

    will be the name of this quilt.
    Somebody posted a similar quilt January 24th on this board. She said that the pattern was out of worldquilters magazin.
    Looking at it I figured it could be done with any size of snail trail blocks. Gladie was so nice to send me a 9 inch snail trail pattern for paper piecing. I did not "finish" the blocks, I only added three rounds of triangles. The biggest triangles I assembled seperately, that way it was much easier to add the tails (hand applique) and the heads (embroidery.com)it also was possible to put a triangle of background fabric under the chin of the monkeys. Then I joined the blocks on point as you can see on the picture. The finished size is 74" x 65 "
    I love it and I think it also could be done with frogs.........without tails of course:-)

    Now it will have to wait for quilting till my Horizon is back from repair.

    Thanks for looking
    Granny

    That is great! Your color placement is just perfect and I can imagine what a lot of concentration it took to make the monkeys. Very inspirational.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Very cute, and very clever!!! Well done.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
