Quilters on MyQuiltPlace must have been in the mood to monkey around this month!
Take a look at this adorable child’s quilt, Peekaboo Monkeys, added to the MyQuiltPlace Gallery by Lois Flannery of Minnesota:
Cathie Scanlon of Washington made a Monkey Madness quilt. Look closely – you will see bananas in the quilting. Perfect choice, Cathie!
The monkey business wasn’t limited to quilts. How CUTE: this monkey crayon apron, added by Sue Platz of Wisconsin!
Tiny knitted Sock Monkey Booties, too?
Sure, why not!
An adorable addition from Jayne Griffith of Ontario, Canada.
Looking through the photos this month, we found more animals on the scene; this time, Wild Goose Chase by Missourian Dolores Fegan of Kentucky. It is pieced in batik, and the goose body is trapunto quilted. The wings are constructed of three layers and thread painting. The feet are three-dimensional.
Dolores also sketched this small piece on canvas, and covered it with free cut fabrics. The background is pieced. Dog Days is covered with thread painting and the background is freemotion stitched! It’s so lifelike.
Looks like it’s a blustery day for the skiers in Ski Lift by Joan Kawano of Colorado. It might be awhile before the snow starts to fade there!
A sure sign of spring! Radiant Iris by Sharon Wasteney of Missouri is a beautiful expression of the pastels of the season. You can almost feel the warmth of the sun coming up behind them.
Another beautiful look at Joan Kawano‘s work. In Floral Garden, the flowers are bright on a sunlight blue sky:
Surely this bright geometric quilt was inspired by sunshine! Arkansas resident CJ Tinkle‘s modern quilt is nicely quilted; see her other photos to check out the close-ups!
Since we’re on the topic of flowers and animals, I just couldn’t resist adding one “Flashback” image. From 2012, here’s a photo of an adorable appliqué and embroidered frog resting under a bright flower. It’s Floral Canopy, by Ellen Anne Eddy of Indiana.
There were SO MANY great photos to choose from this month (as there are every month).
