With a quilt like Monkey See, the fabric served as the focus. All that was required was a simple design that accentuated the cute little monkey faces. I can foresee some little boy or girl adopting this “blankie” as their best bedtime buddy.
I grid quilted using a 5.0mm tight wavy stitch. Valdani cotton quilting thread (50 wt.) was used on the front and back. I really like the diamond pattern that this produced.
It’s going to be difficult letting this one go! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed keeping company with all those sweet little smiling faces.
However, the fabrics are already pulled from the shelves for my next quilt. I’ve even drawn the design in my quilt software. Hopefully, I’ll have a rotary cutter in hand by this evening.
