Let’s Bee Social #67

Posted on: April 8th, 2015 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome Friends!  It is once again Wednesday.
And time for the Let’s Bee Social linky party!

Last week I shared the Giraffe Love quilt.  Choosing the backing fabric was a tough decision and I am so grateful for everyone sharing their opinions on just what should be used.  Thank you!

This is the week of the Monkeys.  For the Background: Ice Frappe, Pond, Pool, Breakers & Cyan.  For the Monkeys there is Stone, Taupe & Earth.  Cactus, Peapod & Grass are for the Leaves.  These are the Konas chosen for the Monkey See Monkey Do baby quilt.

Monkey See Monkey Do – 40″ x 50″

This quilt is now finished!  I could not resist sharing a little sneak peek.

Monkey See Monkey Do.  Monkey peekin’ at you!

Be sure to come by on Friday.
I am hosting TGIFF! and hope to reveal a wild finish!

  27. JanineMarie says:

    These monkeys look like they're up to a lot of mischief! I can't believe how quickly you did this. I was still drooling over the giraffes.

  28. Oh that monkey! How much longer can you keep this up? I keep thinking they can't get any cuter… and lo and behold, they do! What's next? Lions? Tigers? Bears? Oh my!

  31. Oh my….the animals keep popping up. I guess it's time to admit that I can't resist any more. Thanks for coming up with such great ideas.

  32. Would you stop with the cute animals already – I can't believe I want to make every single one – and my baby is 18 years old, so many nieces, cousins kids and my grand-niece are going to be very happy campers!

  33. Preeti says:

    It is a zoo in there, Lorna!!! Or shall we say circus? I wonder if you will make a panda block next…it can be nothing but supercute and will sell like hot cakes on a cold day. Your creativity is amazing and inspiring!!!

  34. Cathy says:

    You are flat out killing me with all these cute patterns!!! My daughter wants to be a large animal vet and work in a zoo. Can you even imagine the comments I'm getting? How many baby quilts can one teenager put in her hope chest for her future children?????

  35. So talented – loving all of the animals so far but my grand-daughter adores monkeys so this takes the cake. Thanks for the linky party.

  36. Ah you are making monkeys too! Your monkeys and your giraffes are so cute! I'm slowly plodding away at finishing my Elephant Parade. Been delayed with jury duty, and work, etc.
