Such as he is, here is Monster book of Monsters.  I am going to have to add a little backgroud to the top, or put him on a flat book. He came out 10 x 10.  I was trying to be really careful, but I lost fabric somewhere (he probably ate it!).  But I am not going to redo the block just to fix the size.  I intentionally changed the fabric from his furry top so his lower jaw would look less hairy and more skinlike.  DH told me twice I was using the wrong fabric.  I told him when he did his monster he could make him hairy all over.  Surely the remaining blocks are easier!   Max

Max. It's GREAT! I especially love those eyes.  I'm heading out to a lunch but will hit the Monster later this afternoon. It had to have been hard to get the pages directional fabric going right. Terrific job.

Thanks Marque.  Don't you just love that material.  We did a baby quilt at work with the red fabric and I had a few bits left over.  I've seen your fabric in the store and it is terrific.

Hi Max, I really like your Monster book. You did a great job!! I wouldn't worry about a the size you can always add a bit on the top and the sides:).

Thanks Max.  I think your blocks are pretty wonderful.  I wish I had more time to sew so I could catch up with you and Judy LOL

I haven't gotten to block 12 yet, but I couldn't wait to do the monster book so here are blocks 4 and 13.  I'll probably jinx myself but I think I'm catching on to this paper piecing business :-)   I've actually done a couple of blocks without any issues.  Oops! now I've done it.  I'm sure to mess up the next one LOL

 

Dara - nice blocks! I love the red fabric.

Max your monster book is great.  Love the eyes!!!  One of the things that makes this project so much fun is that if something is not quite the way the designer did it, there is plenty of room to improvise by adding extra books, background fabric, etc.  The different fabric on it's back is so neat !

Judy, Dara, Zsofia, and Kris--Thank you so much for your kind words!  I'm so glad the Monster is done. Think I'll look for something easy to do next . Maybe some books.

Weather is clearing off here, after a storm last night and this morning. DH said he bought a new movie to watch this evening, so I may stay out of the sewing room for a day or so. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!

Oh, Max. I'm working on Monster Book. It was going so well and I thought "Hey, this is a snap" and then I got to section F and had a major brain fart. Could not get the directional fabric for the pages going in the right direction. I don't know why it was so easy on the first few sections and I can't wrap my brain around this last one. An HOUR later I have just two teeth on section F in place.

That's OK, it'll get done, I'm just blowing off steam and then will go back to section F. It'll probably go easy now that I've fumed a bit. Maybe I need food. Maybe I need a patience gene as I seem to have been born without one of those.

I am so glad you posted those instructions. It's what I needed to tackle this block as I had intended to skip it. George keeps looking at it and saying "that's a book???" I sent him away.

Judy,

Just looked at your Monster Book in media section. He is Magnificent!   I'm SO glad you included him in your quilt.  Section F was a bit of a challenge. I know when I finished mine I felt like I could paper piece anything.     Love the fabric you used for the teacup.  It's just beautiful! 

Poor George!  Andy finally figured out he really wasn't all that welcome in the sewing room while I was working on this block. Standing  by my shoulder watching me wasn't a good idea. 

Think I'll tidy up the mess I made this last week, restack some fabric, and read for a while today. Spring allergies have arrived, and anti-histimines and sewing machines don't go together to well unless you really like frogging!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Max
