Monkey Wrench and Flying Geese: challenge 6, Project Quilting 7

title: Hello Peanut
size:35" x 35"
location : Lewisville, NC
designed and quilted by:  Colleen C. Yarnell
Inspiration:  Im going to be an Auntie!  I just started with a monkey wrench shape and thendesigned it and wrote the pattern

After I wrote the pattern I pulled out a fat quarter bundle of Hello Bear by Bonnie Christine.

On Sunday I pieced and quilted it quickly from the pattern I created.  With a little tweaks.  There is one large center monkey wrench can you count how many flying geese?

I pieced with Aurifil 2615 my favorite gray and quilted with a cool gray variegated Aurifil 4060.  

But I had a back problem that kept me from doing the quilting until Saturday. 

Sofia keeps thinking Im making these quilts for her when Im basting on the floor.

Sofia decided to help with the quilting too.

   I used the gray background Hello animal print for the back.

I kept the quilting simple and used an appropriate to this challenge triangle print from the line for the binding. 

Ill try to add another photo of it in the cradle at my parents when I get the chance.

Keep dreaming...Colleen
