Just Hangin’ Around
This is the first in a series of crib quilt I’m working on that takes a modern twist on pictorial kit quilts that were popular in the mid-20th Century.
I have a few of the antique crib quilts in my collection. They feature one large image that is appliqued, embroidered or both. Some are on a plain background, others feature decorative borders.
My modern versions are made entirely from batiks for a bold look instead of the soft pastels the antiques feature. Instead of a white background, I’ve pieced green, beige and gray batiks for additional interest. The applique features a three foot high monkey.
Even though I’ve never blogged about the finished quilt, this is one of my designs that I am asked about frequently from quilters who would like the pattern. Well now it is available for download.
Just click here to download the pattern, complete with applique templates you can print right from your computer.
And if you like this pattern, be sure to bookmark this blog. I’ve designed an owl applique quilt that is next on the crib quilt list.
