Blogger's Quilt Festival - Monkey Around

I had a hard time picking another quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, but I finally decided on this one!  This is a fun baby quilt made from a line called Hello World by Abi Hall for Moda.  This is a pattern I designed that I usually make with a light background fabric, but for this one I used a dark fabric and I think it came out looking terrific!

One of my favorite things about this quilt is the two different sizes of Monkey Wrench blocks (also called Churn Dash).  I just think it really adds to the fun look.
I fussy cut the animals for the centers of the small blocks, and they are so cute!

So fun!  I think this would be a great quilt for a little boy.  I quilted swirls all over it - fast and easy.

Thanks for looking!  If you like my pattern it is available in my Craftsy shop - just click the picture below.

Make sure you go check out the rest of the posts for the Blogger's Quilt Festival - and add your quilts to the fun, too!  You might find a new blog or two to enjoy as well as lots of gorgeous quilts!

Hi Pamela,
What a fun quilt! The centers of the blocks will be so fun for a little one to look at and identify. I also love the look of dark backgrounds on quilts but I haven't tried it myself yet. I have to expand my horizons and actually give it a try. This looks great. ~smile~ Roseanne
