More Monsters

Another monster quilt for my shop.  My blanket stitching hiatus continues; I hand quilted this one in simple contrast stitching. 

 The monsters are hand appliqued in the same contrasting thread as squares their color.  I kept up the big stitch detailing.  I think the light blue guy's smile turned out nicely.
 The black and white checked binding looks great again.  I like the contrast and extra element of fun.
 So this may look totally familiar.  Remember my initial plan for the bumper was squares like the front, these are the squares that I cut before changing direction on that project.
Another pieced back.  The stitching shows the squares off well here.
This one is headed for my shop, and I'm headed for a break from these monsters.  I've now made the same design three times.  I'm usually a once and never again type; too many other quilts in my brain wanting to get made.  I'm excited about the next few.

Very cute! I love your monster quilts! The binding on this looks fantastic as a contrast with the blocks.
