Of course I didn't notice the thread before I downloaded the picture, hmph. We'll just agree to pretend it's not there, alright?
note the green frosted heart beads and spiders adding a 3-d element.
My husband and I met dancing, so of course I loved this. I make a Halloween quilt every year as it was my second fave holiday growing up, and still is.
I hope to show you at least 5 of them over the next few weeks. I have quite the Halloween fabric collection.
Here is a few close ups, and you can always click on a picture to see details.
I didn't stress over quilting the year I made this, maybe two years ago. It's very flat but has been folded and put away for a year.
I enjoyed the process. I pieced in tiny little paper pieced stars...
They were on some fabric, in my stash like all the fabric I use, so I cut out just the words to piece in.
I quilted with metallic thread, likely turquoise YLI or Madeira. Size 90 Embroidery needle and free motion foot.
I love this little quilt. I have bed sized down to 12 inch Halloween quilts because I go with my feelings each year. I do a lecture that shows all the holiday quilts with a discussion of working in series, just in case you want to see these in person.
