Munki in the Middle

Munki in the Middle Front

Monday I finished my latest quilt using Heather Ross’s Munki Munki fabric as well as other designs from her collections. Munki Munki is a company that sells clothing/pajamas made from Heather’s designs. Crazy people like me buy pieces of the pajamas, cut them up more, and use them in quilts. Lots of people sell pieces of Munki Munki pjs on Etsy as well as trade it on Flickr. You can also find it at TJ Maxx and Marshalls.

Munki in the Middle Front Top

For this quilt, I used the Heather Ross fabric for the center of each block. I included lots of whimsical prints – VW vans, campers, bikes, goldfish, tennis, the princess and the pea, mushrooms, gnomes, sushi….and more! Then I framed that in a coordinating solid. I used shot cottons and Moda cross weaves for these solids. Finally I completed the block in some of my favorite bright prints. The squares are 12″ each.

Munki in the Middle Front Bottom

I quilted this one with straight lines, 1/4″ on each side of the block seams (horizontal and vertical). Then I also added diagonal quilting through all the blocks.

Munki in the Middle Back

The back is a really fun print from Cosmo Cricket’s Snorkel collection. I have been saving it for a backing on just the right quilt and I think this was it. I love how the bright squares mirror the bright squares on the front. The binding is Kona Peacock.

This one came together fairly quickly and it was great fun to cut into my Munki stash that I feel like I’ve been hoarding. It’s listed in the shop!

    Yes, I love that the frames are “irregular” and go with the munki piece that’s surrounded. Also, “munki in the middle” is an awesome name!!
