Budget Friendly DIY Monster Quilt!
Earlier this week I said that I was going to share with you some of my handmade gifts on a budget. WARNING – usually, quilting and budget friendly do not go hand in hand. Making your own quilt is often very expensive in addition to time consuming. This quilt was not =) In fact, my quilting buddy Andrea and I made most of our Monster Squares together for a girls night in Saturday night which didn’t feel like a lot of time at all! She also let me raid her stash of great texture fabrics!!! Using the kids clothing they have outgrown and shopping thrift stores for next textured and fun colored clothing is great for quilting on a budget (and eco-friendly). I can find hideous 25 cent clothes that would make great monsters!!!
Each monster was created by me and machine assembled! It was fun to make them with a friend, because we could share ideas. She loved my green monster with lots of legs and added a ton of legs to the one she was working on. I really liked her one-eyed monster and made one of my own! I also found this quilt on the Internet and loved the way the guy on the rights feet hung down, so one of mine got feet that hung down too!
