Friendly Monsters Baby Quilt

When daughter Trinity and I plan a meet-up, we pack several projects in progress and fabric for several more. This was the case for our mutual visit with my mother-in-law in March. Trinity and I completed the top of the raffle quilt for Pennsylvania Outdoor Veterans. (Click here to see the quilt.) And then she cut and I sewed a very fun monster quilt for a baby boy.

The pattern is “Disappearing Nine Patch.” You might be shaking your head in disbelief because many “Disappearing Nine Patch” quilts contain white or other light background fabric. However, for this quilt, Trinity chose all color-intense fabrics. Isn’t the result marvelous? My eyes keep moving around the quilt, first focusing on the brown print, then on the orange dots, then on the light blue print, etc. all over again.

I used orange thread to quilt a “dwirling” design overall. Leftover striped backing fabric became the binding. We donated this quilt to the NICU at Cape Fear Valley Hospital in Fayetteville, NC via the Tarheel Quilters Guild charity quilt committee.
