The Monster House

The Monster House is quite silly.  I had this really fun monster fabric that I wanted to use, so making a big house for the monsters seemed like the logical choice.  Once I had their house put together I decided it looked too boring, so I chopped it up and put it back together so that it looked like it got blown up.  Then I decided to make a bunch of the goofiest houses I could come up with to go with it.  The end result is a very silly quilt 🙂

Sondra, who does the quilting for me, added her bit of silliness as well.  She quilted in the words Ka-Boom over the house which I don’t think you can see in the picture, but it is pretty funny when you look at it in person.

    1. Hi Lorraine. Thank you 🙂 I had so much fun making the houses – I just kept trying to make them progressively sillier. I was just peaking at your website and I really like the 9 little blocks you make from your scraps. I think you were playing around with an idea from the 15 minutes of Play book. Did you end up making that into a mini quilt? I loved the colors – very cheery. Have a great day. Linda

    1. Hi Sara, thank you 🙂 I really like the pink quilt you are making for your niece! It looks really fun. Have you posted your house quilt project yet? I look forward to seeing it – we both seem to like bright colors so I bet I’ll like yours too! Have a great day. Linda

      1. Hi Sara again :). I just went back to your site and saw your house blocks. Those are awesome!!! They are really bright and playful. Your quilt is going to be spectacular!! Can’t wait to see it come together.

  1. You made a quilt with everything I love in it! Whimsy, houses, excitement, monsters (not too scary ones) , and especially a great back story! Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 Your pot holders are nothing short of amazing!! WOW! Each one is unique, colorful and really cute. I also love your quilts with the applique – especially the animal one with the fox and squirrel!

    1. Hi Diana, thanks 🙂 House blocks were the first block I learned how to make. At first I followed a pattern – but that didn’t last more than a couple of quilts. Then it was all about making the goofiest houses I could dream up. I think having a lot of animal fabrics helps. You should try them – it will make you giggle. Have a great day. Linda
