Monkey Tails – Swirl and Curl 2

Monkey Tails – Swirl and Curl 2

Monkey quilt

One of my go to freehand styles is Swirl and Curl.   As you know, I love quilting swirls and curls!  That’s the design I suggested for Nancy’s Jungle quilt, which had monkey backing fabric.  When I started quilting it, I decided to round the center curl to create the Monkey Tail version.

I love it!

What do you think?  The only problem with creating a new design is not making a mistake!   “Round off” was my mantra throughout the stitching process!   Send me your monkey quilts today!!  🙂

Thanks for looking!  🙂 Linda

Swirl and Curl quilting

My extended family will be having four babies this year!  And yesterday was the arrival of the first, Kailani Harper!  I love making Tummy Time quilts for the babies and here’s the one I made for Kailani.

If you’ve followed my blog you might have seen the design process for making this quilt.  All the fabric was leftover from another quilt!


The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select with another layer of Quilter’s Dream Puff!  I love the texture of the double batting and my new favorite Swirl and Curl freehand quilting design.  I challenge the parents to use the quilts and I’ll make them another if they wear it out!

I’m linking with A Stitch in Time for another April finish!

Thanks!  🙂 Linda
