This is my favorite way to work on quilts. I love the generic requests that allow me to really get creative and play! This one was so simple; pink, purple and monkeys. And I really got creative with my free motion quilting this time.
I created a flower design on the main block and used scallops and waves through out the rest of the quilt.
To go with this one I made a few goodies. For one, I had to follow the only guidelines I was given; pink, purple and MONKEYS! I never found monkey fabric that struck me but I decided to make a monkey as an accessory to the quilt.
The monkey pattern from DIY Fluffies was the perfect choice. A little more complicated than my usual stuffie sews . . . suffice it to say there was a monkey before her that just didn't make the cut.
I topped her off with a matching bow, skirt, and tutu so she would be the perfect compliment to the quilt.
Finally, I completed the set by playing with my newest toys and creating two onesies.
Not going to lie, the necklace one is my favorite! I may have to make a shirt for my daughter now.
I am very happy with how this gift set turned out. One of my favorite to work on thus far!
Until next time . . . happy sewing!
