Sock Monkeys Child's Quilt

Today I quilted a child-size quilt. The pattern is Twist and Turn, and the fabric has adorable sock monkeys.

Linda asked for a fun, swirly overall design. We chose Signature "Parchment" cotton thread.

The backing is a thick, luscious, yellow flannel. I always think the back looks very textural when the backing is flannel.

Tomorrow I will be heading to Fayetteville, NC, to the Tar Heel Quilt Guild's show on the day before it opens. Members of the Carolina Longarm Association take turns visiting local quilt shows to award the Best Longarm Quilting ribbon. Mary, Ann, and I will be choosing from among 78 quilts to award one ribbon! That should take awhile!

While in Fayetteville, I hope to visit Loving Stitches Quilt Shop. Then it is a quick hop from there to my son's home in South Carolina for a short visit, since it is not too far. Even though I just saw them last weekend at the beach, can't resist another chance to get my "grandbaby"fix. Even though they are not babies anymore!
