Monster Train: A Finished Quilt

Monkey is very happy that his new quilt is finished.  He loves dragging it around the house and taking it for rides in the car.

Either that or he is playing Legos on it like his big brother.  (The orange is brighter than it shows in the pictures.  Minky is hard to photograph.)

It is folded on his bed when he is not using it.  I love seeing it so close to his Monster Alphabet quilt.

They were both made with the Silly Gilly fabric I purchased in May 2015.  I still have enough of this fabric for another 2 quilts.

I love making stripe quilts.

They are simple to piece and fun to quilt.  I quilted each stripe cut the same width the same.  It turned out so cute!

I used markings on the chevron fabrics to keep things spaced evenly.

Needless to say that Monkey loves the orange minky on the back.

I named this quilt Monster Train because of the cute monsters on the train stripe.

The binding is the same dark purple as the Monster Alphabet quilt.

  1. Love your quilting! I think that's the best thing about making a strip quilt - besides the fact that they are fast!

  2. I love how it turned out, too, and that smile says just about all any quilter would need to know. :) The minky shows your quilting so nicely.

  3. Another fun finish Jasmine. How wonderful to have your quilts loved so much!

  4. Great finish Jasmine. Monkey looks very happy. I too love making stripe quilts and they are a great way to try out quilting designs. I thought it was just my lack of good photography skills with trying to photograph minkee!! Some colours photograph better than others.

  5. I love that train! It made a really cute quilt. I can see why he takes it with him everywhere. I am also so impressed at all the quilts you have made him already, so I'm guessing that's just a small dent in the amount of quilts you've made. Is minky hard to quilt on?

  6. I love this! That monster fabric is so cute and fun, and the stripes really pull the whole quilt together. What a great finish!

  7. THAT is definitely a happy boy quilt, and I mean happy boy and boy quilt! Love seeing Monkey's big grin with it on his lap. And Legos...I've had some recent experience in that department! And found a few itty bitty pieces that need to go back to a certain boy!

  8. Your quilting is exquisite. The fabric bundle is a great palette of beautiful, saturated color! What happy quilts!!

  9. Love the train quilts! You do such a great job coming up with new ideas. These are adorable!
