  • Video lessons showing lots of different ways to add 3D embellishments to your quilt, like googly eyes, flappy ears, springy curls, and more.
  • Video lessons showing two different ways to add sashing to your QAYG quilt.
  • A video lesson showing how to assemble, and quilt your finished project.

    Size

    Each block finishes at 10" square. The class includes sample layouts for the following sizes. . .

    • crib (50" square)
    • napping (50" x 60") - this is my favorite size for on the couch
    • twin (70" x 90")

      Difficulty

      I designed this quilt to teach appliqué – so it’s great for beginners, and a fun and relaxing project for more experienced stitchers. If you can use your sewing machine, you have the skills you need to make this cuddly (and super silly) monster quilt.

      I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost all done on the machine.
