  • * = Adhere fusible adhesive to back of fabric before die-cutting the shapes.

Piecing the Quilt:

  1. Place either both a Girl and Boy Monkey on a 10" yellow Square. Heat fuse in place with an iron and stitch around the shapes as desired.
  2. Place either a single Girl or Boy Monkey on a 10" yellow Square. Heat fuse in place with an iron and stitch around the shapes as desired. Repeat to form three more Monkey blocks.
  3. For alternate blocks, use the 10" muslin Squares as a foundation to sew Strips together using the String Piecing method. When all four blocks are completed, square up to 10".
  4. Sew blocks together, three across by three down, placing the a double Monkey block in the center.
  5. Measure the top to the bottom of the quilt top. Cut two white 1 1/2" wide Strips to that length. This forms the left and right inside borders. Sew the borders to the quilt.
  6. Measure the quilt top from left to right. Cut two white 1 1/2" wide Strips to this measurement. This forms the top and bottom inside border. Sew the borders to the quilt.
  7. Using the same measuring method as steps 5 & 6, cut the green 5" wide outside border Strips to size and sew in place.

Finishing:

  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  2. Using leftover strips from the String Piecied blocks, sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together, lengthwise, and press.
  3. With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
