Monsters! I love them. Some are scary, some are sweet, some can occasionally be a mix of both.
When I found a monster panel fabric I bought it, even though I had no project planned for it then. I knew I'd find something to do with it. I mean, we're talking monsters!
Quilting projects without an intended recipients are quite liberating as I just work with color and composition (painting with fabric?) and am not bound in any way by my conception about the person who'll use it. I have no idea who'll use it after all.
And here's what I've done with it:
And a close up:
And another close up (because these monsters are just too cute):
The backing of the quilt is squiggly purple fabric, with some of the lime green fabric used as the border. This, apart from being a fun fabric to work with, also adds cohesion to the quilt as the front and back have the same border and binding.
In honor of this quilt I have revived my etsy shop, and will hopefully be listing a few more on there in the coming couple of weeks.
The really fun part? As I was finishing the quilt, Shira saw it and exclaimed she loves it and wants it. When I explained it's really too small for her at 4 ft. square, she asked if I could get more of the fabric and make her one too. I said sure. The following morning AJ saw the quilt and also promptly exclaimed he needs a blanket with this fabric too! Luckily, when I went back to the store, they still had some, so I bought 4 more yards.
The later fun will be the challenge of creating 3 different quilts of the same fabric, and having each quilt be its own thing. I'm looking forward to that.
