Last year when I went to the Payson Quilt Show I signed up to enter a contest. They give everyone who signs up a matching fat quarter. You then have to make your own wall hanging out of it in any way you choose, but you must use a % of the fabric and the mini quilt can only be so big. This fabric was so fun, and quite frankly I didn’t know where to cut it. It took me a while to decide, but after doing the snowball quit for C1’s first birthday quilt, and the fabric had monkeys playing in the snow, I had to go with a snowball pattern for the mini quilt. I fussy cut out the monkeys and added white and light blue is all. When I was binding the quilt I decided to cut the corners to make it look snowball-ish as well. It’s hard to tell, but I quilted it with snowflakes in the white areas.
Another hard thing for me is, I have to make something that will not only win the contest, but something that I like because I’m not sure what I’m going to do with this once the contest is over. I think it’s cute. I’m sad that I won’t be able to attend the quilt show this year to see my quilt on the wall, but I’ll have my MIL enter it for me and take pictures of it in action; along with some of the other quilts that people made from the same monkey fabric.
