Sock Monkey Quilt Progress - WIP Wednesday

This week has NOT gone as I planned.  The weather here in Indiana is NUTS.  This morning we had thunderstorms and tornado warnings.  This all does not-so-nice crazy things to my head. 

Today I have worked on the sock monkey quilt.  For something so simple it has taken me forever.  I cut my final borders a half inch short and had to piece them after they were partially on.  I just feel lucky I didn't get anything upside down so that I had to remove an entire row.

I tried to go outside for a picture (it is 65°F here) but the wind is so strong that would only work if I lay on my back underneath it.  Did I mention the storms this morning?  It is sunny and soggy right now.  The dogs love it.

So, back in to my dining room table.

This quilt top measures 42"x49".  I plan to back it with some red flannel.  I didn't like the sock print as much as I thought and ended up breaking in up with fussy cut monkeys in the corners.  I like how the rest turned out.

One of the monkeys and the border print.

The blue.  Not exactly baseballs but looks masculine enough.

Hmmm.....I was trying to add pictures of the other fabrics but I can't seem to access them.  Maybe I will be able to edit later

Well, I added one more picture.  I am not sure I have the patience to try again tonight!

Going to link up to Freshly Pieced  for WIP Wednesday.

Keep Stitchin'!



  1. Too cute! You and I are birds of a feather, you know...'cause I'm doing 'simple' too only it doesn't feel that way.

  2. Oh, that turned out fabulously!!! The colors are just perfect. Great job!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from people. I have turned word verification back off. We will see how that works.
