Q99 – Flying Monkeys – Quilt

Good Day,

Flying Monkeys has been finished. Flying Monkeys is our 99th recorded Quilt.

Okay, okay, I know that this looks like Sock Monkey fabric. It truly does. The three fabrics are of Moda’s Funky Monkey collection designed by Erin Michael. My inspiration was the Half Rectangle Triangle Tutorial found at The Modern Quilt Guild site. Well, monkeys and half rectangle triangles together equal kites, or what appear to be kites. And therefore Flying Monkeys.

Flying Monkeys will be shortly at its new home in Land O’Lakes, Florida… No place like a new home!

The dimensions of Flying Monkeys are: Length – 50” (127 cms) and Width – 36” (91 cms). The quilting, 41,000 stitches, is horizontal and vertical parallel lines to create a grid pattern. The parallel quilting is 1” (2.54 cms) apart.

Here are some more images, close-ups and the back of Flying Monkeys.

Stay tuned, three new completed quilts to follow. We've been busy, CT surgery and everything.

And now for the Quilts SB business part…
