 The other day I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop when the Charity group was busy making quilts for charity.  After talking to Mary who runs the group, it hit me.  I love Monsters and have wanted to make a monster quilt for a long time but all my children, grandchildren, great grand children are too old for a monster quilt.  However....I bet there are lots of children who would like one, so why not make one and give it to the charity group to distribute. So I hurried home and got busy.  Above is block...well I haven't given it a name so we'll call this block #1.
 This is Block #2.  I have had so much fun today making these blocks!
I saw the monsters on Shiny Happy World and am using Wendi's pattern for my monsters.  If you go to her website today you will find a free bunny pattern.  I love that these monster patterns allow you to be creative.  The pieces for all the monsters are available and you are not told where to put what.  You use your imagination and mix and match and embellish as you desire.  I love being creative!  This is a great way to use up those scraps too!   I'll show you more as they develop.

Your monster blocks are adorable. I am sure you are going to give some smiles to a child with your monster quilt. Your blocks sure started my day with a smile.

What a clever pattern idea for making the cutest most adorable monsters ever! Let’s see, I’m 65 almost, and I want your monster quilt! So what was that you were saying about everybody being to old for this quilt??? I will love watching this one being made!
