Monkey Around Sample in Hello World by Abi Hall for Moda

I finished up another shop sample this week, this one is really cute!

I love those cute little animals, they were just right for fussy cutting into the center of the little blocks.

I had fun with the bright colors!

At first I had planned to use the blue check for the binding, but the quilt said, NO!  It said it wanted a bright orange binding...well, if the quilt tells you something, you just have to go along with it.

And I think it's just perfect!
Here is the finished quilt:

It measures 48 x 48 and is made with my Monkey Around pattern.  The cute animal prints and blue check are Hello World by Abi Hall for Moda fabrics, and the other prints are various colors that I chose to go with it.  I put a cute navy dog bone print on the back, but don't have any pictures of that.  I machine quilted this overall with a swirl pattern in a variegated blue thread.

I'm super happy with how it came out and will be dropping it off at Threads That Bind tomorrow, we'll be making kits and taking it to shows over the summer.  Ha - my quilt will be traveling more than me this year!

Now I'm busy finishing up a pile of alterations that has built up on me.  It's prom season and the dresses are starting to filter in!

I'm linking up for Linky Party Tuesday, come take a look!
