President’s Block

Every year the outgoing President of our local quilt guild receives a block of her choice from each guild member.  With these signed blocks she puts together a quilt to remember her time as our leader.This year our outgoing president requested basket blocks because she is the local Longaberger basket representative. Here’s my contribution.

I’m always at risk to become known as the “monkey lady.”  This monkey applique is from Designs by JuJu. I just made an applique and cut the lower part off so it would look like it is in the basket. Then I hand appliqued the pin cushion and details.

I’m one project closer to starting my Christmas gifts.  Where are you on Christmas gifts?


About ladybelle

I'm a wife, mother and grandmother and I love to make things, especially sock monkeys. They're great for all kinds of gifts, birthdays, baby showers, etc. Kids love them and so do adults!! I've made many football players, including Peyton Manning, Tony Romo and Tom Brady, and character monkeys like Rainbow Brite and the Grinch. Look at some of my favorites and email me with your requests at
