a munki munki quilt in progress

munkiquilt

I’ve been trying to do a bit of organizing, and in the process, have been discovering some fun (and not so fun!) older projects and lots of fabrics I’ve been saving. I pulled out my Munki Munki stash, which I collected over several years, and decided to make up one more quilt. I’ve made several quilts out of these fun prints and now that I got to play with them one last time, I can honestly say I’ve had my fill.

Some of you may notice this is the same design as my autumn blush quilt I posted recently – turns out this is a great design for making while simultaneously playing with the kids. It’s also a great design for packing in lots of different fabrics. And now that the top’s complete, it’s really fun to look for all the fun little details – chickens, kitties, goldfish, apples & pears, oh my!

I’m still deciding on a backing – a little extra Heather Ross perhaps? I might have to go all out on this one! In the meantime, I’m sorting through and listing the remaining Munki fabrics, which you can find here.

    Wonderful quilt!!! If you had any extra of this Munki Munki fabric left after this quilt I’ll gladly take it off your hands….hehe!! I’m a newish quilter and these fabrics were “before my time”! I would love to buy some of Heather Rosses older fabrics but there is no way I can spend as much as people want for them. I love all your quilts!
