…to tell you that the Monkey Quilt top is DONE! I wish the picture was better…but you get the idea!
I found the pattern in this book…
I didn’t bring my book with me but I found out through Krista (Poppyprint) that the designer is a friend of her’s…Laurraine of Patchwork Pottery. Linda Kopp is the author of the compilation book, but the pattern is Laurraine's. She's a member of the VMQG and lives over in New West (Vancouver, BC)!
Obviously Laurraine is a VERY talented designer! Love this quilt!
She took the ‘Five Little Monkeys’ song and turned it into this quilt. I changed it up a bit…I hand embroidered the last verse rather than the first verse for my poem around the quilt.
One Little Monkey jumping on the bed.
He fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“PUT THAT MONKEY RIGHT TO BED!”
Very cute…don’t cha’think?
I used to teach the poem “Five Little Monkeys” to my K-1 class. For the last sentence to this poem the kids would put one hand on their hips and wag their other finger as they YELLED… “PUT THAT MONKEY RIGHT TO BED!!” They LOVED this poem! I will have to teach it to my wee grandson…in June!…:o)))))
Have a Wild Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P
