A few more Monkey blocks

I'm really having fun using my small scraps to make these Monkey blocks.....To make the ones pictured above I mostly used a wad of 5-in. squares that I'd had hanging around FOREVER, and was able to slice and dice them and turn them into cute little blocks.

Since the blocks are only 5-inches finished, I'm going to need a lot of them to make anything out of them, so I'm glad I'm enjoying the process. I'll keep you posted!

I'm not going to be able to do much quilting for the next few weeks... I'm going on a 3-week trip with two friends across China! I wonder if I'll find any quilting fabric over there?


  1. Ginny have a fantastic time in China. Somewhere I've always wanted to go, especially to see the Terracota Warriors. I hope we get to see your pictures when you get back. I am sure they will have some lovely fabric over there. Susie x

  2. OMG Have a fabulous time! Sure to be tons of inspiration. I hope you'll post photos.

  3. Your blocks are like a happy little explosion of beautiful colors. They'll make a gorgeous quilt, and use up some scraps, too. Congratulations on your trip. What an opportunity.
