I am working on my Happy Scrappy Monsters for Judy's January Scrappy Challenge. I hope to get 16 blocks done to make a baby quilt. I am making my blocks 7.5". As you can see, I have 7 done and the fabric cut for an 8th block. I plan on sashing with black fabric and bright colored cornerstones (the small squares in the corner) and using the black novelty fabric as the border.
Here is a close up of 6 of the ones I have done. You can see that I fussy-cut the monsters to be in the center(ish) of each square. You can also see the bottom center that not all of the "same color" in the block is the same fabric - I used 4 different yellows for the flying geese wings :-) Some of the blocks even have multiple whites in them. Everything but the novelty fabric is from my scraps. The novelty was a clearance ($3.99/yd) New Year's Eve sale purchase a few weeks ago.
Check out what others are working on here at Judy's Design Wall Monday page for January 13, 2014.
Have a great evening folks!
