    Hi,
    I am starting a memory quilt for my daughter who has been studying abroad in Thailand. I would like a monkey and elephant pattern to applique on the quilt. Any suggestions?

    check out free coloring book pages, I'm sure you could find something there to adapt to appliqué

    I am attaching a picture of an elephant quilt I made my grandson when he was born six years ago. The pattern is in Quiltmaker's All-Time Favorites Fall 2003 issue. I don't know if you can still get back issues that are that old. This was a blast to make. My DIL loves bright fabrics, so that is what I went with as you can see and it was way outside my comfort zone.

    I also have a pattern for appliqued monkeys. If you are interested in that, I will try to find the name of it.

    I love those elephants Judy! Cute quilt. I will try and find the magazine in the archives.
    Also, if you find the monkey pattern for the applique monkey that would be great!
    Thanks!

    Elaine: Here's a link to Amazon.com where you can buy the Monkey pattern. http://www.amazon.com/Storybook-Snug.../dp/156477788X Or you can do a google search for Storybook Snugglers Monkey Business and find other places to buy it.

    I made the quilt (see a picture below) but didn't applique the monkeys - I machine embroidered them on. But the monkeys in the pattern are really cute though.
