this is beautiful fabric , It reminds me of summer when I was a kid and we would all go camping at a local lake .My aunts and uncles would join us on the weekends,with all of their kids. My dad had a speed boat and it was so much fun to ride in it and watch the grown-up skiing behind the boat. this fabric reminds me of the table cloths my mom would put on the picnic tables with our tons of food . I would like to make a quilt of this for my mother . It is some of the best memories of my childhood .It was so much fun .

This fabric is super cute!  It reminds me of the sock monkeys my great grandma made when I was little.  I have a friend that is having twins and would love to make a couple of quilts for them.  This is versatile and is gender neutral so you don't have to use the traditional green/yellow combination.

I love this Monkey Around fabric.   I would have to make a quilt and some kind of stuffed "friend" for my great-nephew Noah, who is affectionately known as Monkey Man.    It's such happy fabric - I can't help but smile just looking at it!

My elderly aunt in Kansas made us 4 kids a "car" quilt back in the early 60's.  It had appliqued sock monkeys made of the traditional brown & red socks on it and when we made our cross country trips in the old Buick, we would cuddle in it and feel the sock monkeys and use our hands under them as puppets & talk to each other! We'd stop at A&W's and get the tiny mugs of root beer and I recall "feeding" a sock monkey some of my root beer- he was never quite the same!

I would use this fabric to make a 2012 sock monkey car quilt for my grandchildren's kids to be....and continue the tradition.

These darling monkeys just scream out to be made into play clothes for my diminutive granddaughter, Lorelei. I can see her twirling in a full-skirted sundress with a border of the monkey stripe around the hem and pretty pink bloomers peeking out underneath. Add a floppy chocolate sunhat with pink dots and a little totebag to carry her important treasures, and she'll be ready for a fun-filled afternoon on the monkey bars at the playground.

Thy were both very crafty; her sewing and crocheting and him wood working. I guess I get my love of arts and crafts from them... Oh how miss them so!!!

I would make my grand daughter a valance, pillow and quilt with the Monkey Around fabric. I would also make a quilt for her favorite doll with the scraps.

One of my close friends decorate her daughter's bedroom in African animal motifs. I made her two quilts when she was born using this theme. While she is just approaching one year, it won't be long before she is into a big girl bed and will need a big girl bed quilt. I would use the Monkeying around fabrics to continue the theme of the room and accessories. Ashby is particularly special to me because her grandparents live on both sides of the country so I get to be the local grandmother. And you know the role of the grandmother is to spoil the grandkids. So, the Monkeying Around fabrics would be perfect to spoil Ashby!

The Monkeying Around fabric would be perfect for one of my friends. She makes scores of sock monkeys for charity, and almost all her quilts are for charity as well.She loves anything with sock monkeys. I have never had a sock monkey, personally, but they sure are cute!

I love the Sugar blossom collection from Quilting Treasures and would use that to make something for my 7 year old niece.

This new line of fabric brings back fond memories of "George", the sock monkey. He was my first granddaughter's best friend for many years. She's now in her 30's and I wouldn't be surprised if she still has him tucked away somewhere. Several visits found George in my sewing room (also know at the monkey hospital back in those days) for minor and even major repairs from time to time. This would be the perfect fabric to piece a lap quilt for granddaughter #1 and awaken her childhood memories of a dear friend.

This design takes me way back to when I was a thirteen and we made sock monkeys in our grade eight class for an art project.  Those were the days when art was important in the classroom. We thought we made masterpieces. When I look at the fabric I think of all the fun we had in grade school. Why don't they do things like that now.  It was a  pair of old  work socks from dads drawer with stuffing and red felt

One Christmas when I was quite young, my mother made all the relatives a sock monkey as a gift.  One aunt would always have hers positioned differently every time we visited.  This fabric brings back memories.  I would make a quilt and a cute outfit for my grandson, and then knit up a monkey as a friend.

I would make a quilt for my husband. last year he spent 9 of 12 months in the hospital. Needless to say he needed a little cheering up and something to look forward to. So I started to buy different playful monkeys that depicted different trips we would make when he recovered. After he got home I have continued to make different monkey themed projects for him, just to see him smile again.  Your playful and cheerful monkey pattern would be a perfect next project.

I love it. When I was a child, mom and I would watch the Carol Duvall craft show. Carol Duvall would have from time to time, show how to make the stuffed monkey. That was one on my favorite time's was setting down with my mom and learning new craft projects. I'm thanking a craft bag for my mom out of this fabric would be a great Christmas present. If there was some fabric left I would make a matching bag for myself.

I love this line. I'm sure this line jogs many a  memory for those of us more seasoned (age based not skill) quilters. I would make some quilties for toddlers for our local abuse shelter to have on hand. The pattern  is so playful and funloving I'm sure it would help be a cuddly security blankey for a child in need of attention, love and protection.

I know the fabric is durable I,ve made many a project out of Quilting Treasures fabric myself. Many of my early christmas decorations were made with it.

Thanks for the opportunity.

I belong to a group that makes items for our community hospital.  Usually on  non-themed fabric it is just a pillowcase or an easy to assemble doll or a simple quilt.  When we have themed fabrics such as this, we make a 'package' which goes to children with more serious issues.  This fabric which is so bright and cheerful---who couldn't smile at a monkey with a big grin---lends itself to a package.  We frequently get kits from the Original Sock Monkey site, to make Sock Monkeys which greatly reduces the price per unit.  I can see a quilt made highlighting the panels as a theme with the other fabrics framing it in and the highllight being the outer frame of the row of monkeys.  Add a pillow case to that and a Sock Monkey and the weight of the world will be lifed from a child's shoulders when he looks at them.

Hi I would make a quilt for my niece Kinsley. She is 15 mos. old and has some pretty severe health problems.She had brain surgery when she was 10.mos.old to remove a very fast growing cyst that was pressing on her brain. She has an extra chromazone in her body that causes her to have seizures frequently but the good news is Praise God at her last checkup the remainder of the cyst that was left behind has not grown any and they have decided to start to wean her off one of her seizure medicines (she takes three). Since doing that she is responding much more to stimuli and bright colors is one of the things the therapists are using. I would also appreciate prayer for her from any of you who do that.

Thank You

We make baby quilts and other items for charity, and this fabric would be awesome in baby quilts, and items for new mothers. I would challenge guild members to be creative and making quilts for charity is one way we give back to our community.

The Monkey Around fabric is really cute.  I would use it to make a comfort quilt for "Quilts 4 Kids".  I think one of the children would just love it and the quilt might cheer them up a little while bringing them comfort.  The only childhood memory this brings back is that the mother of one of my high school boyfriends made the sock monkeys others have mentioned here.

I think every household has had a sock monkey.  We had one but didn't use it for everyday play.  You see, it was made by a favorite aunt who died too young from cancer in the early '60s, and so it was more a revered keepsake than a toy.

When Melody gets her quilt, she will take it everywhere with her.  When she takes it everywhere, her cousins will see the quilt and want something made from the cute sock monkeys, too.  When the cousins all get together and all share the sock monkey projects, Nathaniel will say that he wants Grandmama to make him something different, and I will be looking for more cute prints from Quilting Treasures.

I would make a quilt for my brother for his 55th birthday. He had a sock monkey way way way back when he was little.  I have found a sock monkey pattern and the socks to make one to go with quilt.  I am lucky to have a brother with as wacky a sense of humor as I.

I would have to make a quilt out of this beautiful fabric to savor the memories.   Perhaps a Grandmother's garden or Merry-Go-Round quilt would be awesome in those fabrics to remind me of summertime fun.

My wish was never fulfilled until my daughter went to college and gave me a small one to remember her by since I always teased her that she looked like a monkey after she cut her long hair off.  Thanks for the chance to enter.

She was born autistic and has grown out of almost all of it but still has a few things autistic traits left, like the fact she wants a quilt like the one she had and no other will do, haha. She just became a mother herself. Her child was born at 25 weeks, a micro-preemie,and is doing great!! But she is stuck in a hospital in another state by herself and a quilt would be a great comfort to her.

I look at this fabric and think of spring.  What could be better for a winter project than a cheerful quilt to Reid us of the promise of spring.

My niece is adopting a baby that is due in November and would love to make a baby quilt .  The sock monkeys are a favorite for a long time?

I have a friend that loves sock monkeys. I would create a lap quilt for her. I've already made a pillow for to support her back on long car trips. This would be an added bonus.

The white/green/red fabric reminds me of my favorite "dress up" skirt that belonged to my mom.  It was gathered and very full.  I would pretend to be sash-shaying up and down the street with a few twirls to show off the white pumps I was trying to walk in.

This fabric line reminds me of the dresses I made for my four daughters in the early sixties. I would love to make them a lap sized quilt each. I have used Quilting Treasures fabrics for years and think their quality if the best. Nina H.

I made my oldest son a sock monkey when he was a baby.  I now crochet sock monkey hats for my grandchildren & children in my church.  I would love to make my grand babies each a quilt & some outfits to wear.

The fabrics bring me back to the days of my youth.   I would use the fabric to make a quilt for my sister as she used to have a sock monkey that I liked to play with.   Seeing as she is the best sister in the world, I would love to make her something special.
