I *finally* got some more Kona Maize which I have been using for the sashing between these very scrappy blocks! (the scrap quilter's dilemma - when your scraps run out and you need more!)
I needed to cut some more scrappy cornerstones, so I went to the orange box first.
And a few more in some other colors. I loved finding the last tiny bit of one of my favorite text prints!
Unleash your creativity and be inspiring! :)
And here we are - all the monkeys playing nicely together! But...
They said, "No way! This traditional setting is boring! We want to dance!" Of course, I'm thinking, "How do I do that?" And then I thought about Bonnie Hunter's tutorial for the Dancing Nine Patch quilt, and wondered if I could make that work for my monkey friends.
And I think I figured it out! I already had the sashing sewn on, so it was just a matter of turning the blocks correctly, like this! And I do like the way the cornerstones meet in the middle every so often.
Here is the layout as it is now - just a bit more fun! (And it also has the benefit of giving me way fewer seams to match up, yay!) After sewing the blocks together, I think a narrow inner border and wide outer border will be just what these monkeys need!
