Little Monsters

I had an old a long time acquaintance call to put her quilt in the queue, and it was so nice to hear from her.    This is what she brought me--isn't it fabulous!!

 This is the unquilted flimsy, but just look at all those appliques!  The entire center of the quilt is applique, and most of the borders are too.  HAND APPLIQUE!!  I know, I know, lots of people do it, and do it very well, as C does, but it isn't one of my skills, so I'm always in awe.

and in progress...

I had so much fun quilting this Little Monsters by Don't Look Now quilt.

 Each of the inner borders was different, so they each got quilted differently. 
 I love how this green border turned out --on the back too

C asked for a curly fill between the appliques, and minimal stitching on the appliques themselves, so I only stitched on the appliques that were 3" and bigger. 
 The only ditching is between borders--the other stitching is close enough that ditching wasn't necessary.
 C made this quilt for her nephew, and from what I've heard, he loves it.  There's an extra connection there as well, since how I know C is through her sister, who was one of my university housemates.

 Here's a photo of the full quilt, so you can see all the different borders.  Did I mention how fun this quilt was?

 I love the octopus from the back. 

I have a great job!
