    Cool Monster blocks - not finished but what do you think?

    These are the monster quilt blocks I am working on for a baby quilt. There are 11 of them. 10 blocks for the quilt front and 1 block will be on the back. Not sure which one will be on the back although it will be 1 of the smaller ones.

    All of the blocks are fused. I have not started the applique stitching yet as I had problems earlier and had to completely start over. (That first block may be made into a pillow case or something else but won't be in the quilt.) Some of the features (eyes, mouths, fingers, etc will be embroidered on).

    I just wanted to share what I've done so far. It has taken much longer than I expected to get each block to this point. The blocks are hanging from the ceiling. I don't have a design wall but this seems to work pretty well. My sewing room is a converted attic.

    Thanks for looking and have a great week.

    Oh how cute!! That is going to be one awesome kids quilt. Where did you ever find the appliques for the monsters?? If you did not draw them yourselves, please would you share your source?? I have a friend who would LOVE those on her kids clothes.
    Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!
