    After reading Laceybritt's thread regarding 5 little monkeys quilt, I jump right on it to get mine started. Thanks for the motivation, Laceybritts.

    It took me about a week 5-7 hours a day to get my top finished. I still need to embroider the poem around the outer border. I'm not sure if I'm motivated enough to do it. I might just skip it and call it finish.

    Well, what do you think?

    argggg.... you're making me rethink!!!!

    the problem is I'm not good at aligning the designs. I'm not sure how to do it properly and not ruin the whole in the process.

    Plus I ran out of the gray fabric to embroider it on. Hmm... I guess I'll need to go shopping this weekend.:-D

    It's so cute. Do you have a friend with an embroidery machine? Maybe she (he) would do the embroidery for you.

    That is adorable. That was a favorite rhyme for my girls when they were little. I still chuckle when I am reminded of it. Thanks for the grin this morning. Your quilt is beautiful.

    It is absolutely stunning!!!! I love your choice of materials. I thought of making one for my nephew but all she will do is put it in the closet to save it. :roll:
    It is definitely a masterpiece!!
    Thanks for showing.

    It's machine embroidered, hence the reason why it took so long to finish it.
