We have finally finished our M is for Monsters Quilt! What do you think? We had a lot of fun with this quilt and our favorite thing about it was using Bamboo Felt for a lot of the applique! It is our new not so secret, secret ingredient!
Appliqued quilts are so much fun but we realize that they are a challenge. Using the bamboo felt, makes the experience very quick and easy. There are no raw edges and no needle turning.
It washes beautifully unlike the Wool blend felt. There are tons of beautiful colors and the edges do not have to be turned under and will never fray. Wow this changes everything! If that isn’t enough it is a little thinner than regular felt and just a little thicker than regular quilting cotton. The texture change makes your applique designs really fun.
In the M is for Monsters quilt we used a combination of cotton fabrics and the Bamboo felt and we just love the way it turned out! The picture below is the color range of the felt, we will be carrying a lot of it in our shop and online very soon, so stay tuned. We also will be posting a little Bamboo felt applique tutorial on the blog next week that you won’t want to miss.
The M is for Monsters patterns are available now in a physical pattern & PDF and kits through the link below.
We also sell the Bamboo Felt if you would like to give it a try for something else:
