My Quip – Flying Monkeys – Healing Carpel Tunnel

Good Day,

The work on our quilting has slowed down a wee bit… Andy’s surgery went well, and as far as I can see he still has all four fingers and one thumb on his right hand.

We have finished the design and top to a new little quilt, Flying Monkeys. The idea for the design was inspired by the Half Rectangle Triangle Tutorial found at The Modern Quilt Guild site.

The approximate size of Flying Monkeys will be: Length – 48” (122 cms) and Width – 34” (86 cms). The three fabrics are of Moda’s Funky Monkey collection designed by Erin Michael. The Half Rectangle Triangle is a technique that certainly lends to a fast construction of the top.

We have decided on the quilting… and either I learn how to use our Longarm… or Andy’s wrist heals bloody fast, whichever comes first.

Our images are just a peek into the completed top but… I can tell you that we are both extremely pleased at the current result.

And now for the Quilts SB business part…
