Here is the fifth baby quilt to be donated to the Little Lambs Foundation as part of this year’s Hands2Help Challenge. I used the 7 Seas design from McKay Manor Musers for three of the five baby quilts, as choosing and doing a unique applique for each was fun. It also was less time spent on the piecing part, so more time could be spent on the quilting part. For the quilting, I stitched intersecting circles, using a trick I picked up from the Thimblelady website. They have a lot of free quilting templates – and a whole lot of other quilting related stuff – as well as some great tips that I found very helpful.
The name Monkeying Around sort of encompasses my general approach to quilting 🙂 It’s fun to experiment and play around with designing quilts. And now that I have dipped my toes into the quilting aspect as well, it adds a whole other dimension to the creativity aspect that I so enjoy!
This will be included in this year’s Hands2Help Challenge being hosted by Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict @fabricaddictquilts. I will be sending this quilt to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids @littlelambsfoundationforkids
