Sock Monkey Quilt

 I have mentioned before that our Guild makes quilts for Teddy Bears or stuffed animals and gives them to the Christmas Cheer Fund to give to needy children at Christmas time.  I bought a sock monkey last year after Christmas and found some sock monkey fabric at Beaver Bay Quilt Shop.  I made the quilt top at the retreat last weekend and quilted and put the binding on it today.

Naniboujou Lodge

This past week-end I spent 4 days with twenty four quilter at Naniboujou Lodge on the north shore of  Lake Superior.  We had the lodge to ourselves since it is closed for the season and only open to groups.  The weather cooperated so we were able to go for walks along the shoreline or just sit on the swing and watch the surf on the lake.

Everyone was really ready to spend the days quilting.  I forgot to take pictures of the end results of the week-end but I took lots of the work being done.

And lastly my Sock Monkey which I finished today and will post the final picture tomorrow,

I used a tablecloth for my design wall.

This was the fabulous room that we quilted in.  There's Pat waving to me as I snapped the picture.

Next year I will remember to take pictures of the finished quilts.
