It's link up time again over at the FMQAYGQAL, I havent made much progress in the last few weeks but I do have one to show. As soon as I saw the tree block I knew I had to stitch a bunny under it!

 Completely inspired by The Rabbit Tree quilt by our fearless QAL leader. Congrats on the feature in APQ (go have a look over at Quokka Quilts ;)

And another Bunny.... Isn't she adorable?? Made from a pair of white socks, a little bit more of a challenge than a standard Monkey.

The pattern is from LaliDolls on etsy - I just saw the elephant and cute baby doll patterns,
And just one more bunny... I can see my FMQ skills are definately improving, thanks to the QAL and challenges I'm doing this year. This bunny 'hoopla' was made for a craftster swap I was in last month. The theme was silhouette, and my partner had listed 'bunnies' as a favourite. Cost me a fortune to post a 10in hoop to the USA (what is with that Australia Post?? It was lightweight and still cost me nearly 20 bucks??)

Thanks for looking!

Quilt Blocks and Monkeys

I've been working on the March blocks for my Quilt Bee this weekend. The block chosen was the Garden Fence . The colours were Yellow, Grey, Black with white - just like the quilt in this tutorial!
The first two I made turned out a bit small - my 1/4in is a bit off apparently. Rather than unpicking, I'm going to trim them back to 10in and make myself a small table quilt!

Here is the final version, photo taken outside as it was such a nice day (with the help of the kids trampoline!)

And I have finished some more Sock Monkeys.

This adorable Cupcake Monkey is now available in my Etsy store, have a quick look if you are interested.
