A Finished Flimsy and Some Monkey Business!

I was so excited to put the last stitch in the last border of my Scrap Jar Stars quilt top yesterday!  I made these blocks throughout 2016 during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and I really love how it all turned out.


I've been having a good time looking at it up close and thinking about how I will quilt it.  Digging into my copy of Walk, by Jacquie Gering has given me some ideas!


Meanwhile, the monkeys have not been let out to play all month, and I think they were trying to tell me something!


So I dug through a few scraps and made some red monkeys.


I think they'll be the life of the party!


We're getting toward the end of Red month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Check out tomorrow's link at SoScrappy to see what everyone else has been doing with their red scraps!

  2. Love your Scrap Jar Stars flimsy! And those little red monkeys are making me grin! (Just keep an eye on them! They have a tendency to take over your whole sewing area!)

  3. The Scrap Jar Stars turned out beautifully! Hope the monkeys didn't get too rambunctious. The red ones certainly are bright and cheery.

  7. Now I'm really inspired to keep rolling on the scrap jar stars! It's so pretty. I lover the white box that appears around the 4-patch corners.

  8. I love how your borders are a continuation of the sashings in center of the quilt. Monkey business at it's best! The red ones look so different from the one the monkey is hanging onto. Do you have a plan for them or are you like me and just making them cuz you can!

  13. Congrats on you flimsy. I like the secondary patch that occurs, gives it an extra little something to tie all the blocks together. The red monkey is looking for trouble. He should be happy with all those cute red blocks.
