When a quilter sees a monster...7:24 PM
Kids see monsters all the time. i'm sure many moms like me have, more often than not, put a label "Monster Spray" over a spray bottle filled with a room freshener.
But what happens when the quilter mom sees a monster?
She makes it into a quilt, of course!!!
I was playing with some fabric dyes yesterday. While ironing out the fabrics, I saw a shape of a monster in it!!!
My mind started whirring with ideas. So much so that I totally forgot to take a picture of it!!!
I snapped this one just as I set it up on my machine to make the "Monster in my Dye" quilt!
If you turn your head to the left, you can see the monster's face!
I took him and made it into a quilt! I'm sure my son will love it when he sees it!!!
I added a small piping before I added the binding! I love the effect of it!
Here's a detail shot of the face... The quilting turned out awesome!
