Monster Applique Quilt

Use up your fabric scraps and make this monster applique quilt! It's easier than it looks, and make a super fun quilt for kids.

I finished my third quilt! I had so much fun sewing this; I used a bunch of knit fabric scraps from all the clothes I’ve made my kids over the years. It’s sewn from a Craftsy pattern/class and you can see my full review, sharing what is included and what to expect, in this post. I gifted this to our family friends and I hope their kids love it as much as mine do!

I love how it turned out! I bound the edges in a simple grey and used Nature-Fil batting, buying a big bolt off Amazon* made it less than $5 a yard!


I backed it with cuddle fleece from Shiny Happy World (Wendi is also the designer of this quilt pattern) and it made it SO thick and cozy. I sat underneath it while I hand sewed the binding and couldn’t believe what a difference the fleece backing made in terms of weight and warmth.


I included one of my favorite labels, because it is true. This is my third quilt (first one here that I made for my husband, and second one here that I made for my mother-in-law) and I was still surprised at how long it took to finish!


I shared a bunch of detail shots in this post and all of the monsters looked the same after I threw the whole quilt in the wash, except for the furry one. Even though I washed on delicate/cold and hung it up to dry, it got matted! I tried to comb it out but it still looks a little bit bedraggled. Regardless, I love how the quilt turned out! I saved all the scraps that I’d pulled for this one and want to start one for us to keep, too. I think it will be fun to cut out a bunch of monster pieces and let my kids assemble the different faces.

  1. Oh my goodness, I love the quilt, but the label is so much fun. Each year, I purchase custom printed labels for my quilts…I think I’ll just have something like this done next year!

  2. This is the most adorable quilt ever! And I agree, it would be super fun to have the kids help assemble the monster faces! Now that mine are almost grown, I’m finding so many cute things I could have done with them. It makes me a little sad.

  3. Haha, Stephanie,

    I couldn’t help but giggle, seeing the hilarious label – so true! Congrats on being so stubborn to actually finish a quilt like this one. Love it!

  4. **Gasp!!** This is amazing! I love all your fabric choices and the adorable monsters! Any kid would be absolutely thrilled to have such a fun quilt! Great job, Stephanie! 🙂 Lisa

  5. Love this quilt! I was thinking about signing up for another qaug course but this quilt is too cute to resist. My grandkids can help make up the faces. Great job!!

    1. Hi! I don’t sew to sell – and if I did, this quilt would cost a million dollars because it took forever, haha. Sorry!! You might contact the designer, Wendi, at Shiny Happy World and see if she knows any designers selling from her pattern or get on her newsletter, I know sometimes she sells samples she has sewn from the pattern.
