Monkeys in the Mail

A cousin of mine is a new dad.  When I went into my stash looking for inspiration for the baby quilt, I found this sock monkey fabric and knew immediately that it was perfect. As a kid, my cousin had a beloved sock monkey that was never very far away.  I made one giant 32″ inch square Churn Dash block, which is also called a Double Monkey Wrench, added the borders and voila!  I do have to say that the Modern Quilting practice of taking one block and blowing it up to make it a full quilt is brilliant. Sewing 9 super larger squares couldn’t have been quicker.
