|"Forever Partners" about 25" square|
I made it years ago, because I fell in love with the gestures of the dancing skeletons. Reminds me of my gallant husband dancing with me, his best partner. In the above picture you can click on it to see the three D details such as spiders, and heart beads.
This is a shot of the whole thing hanging in the hallway for October. I pieced in the circles and have a tutorial on the technique in my tutorials page. I did paper pieced stars and added background fabrics to allow them to circle the dancers, repeating the circle shape. The beads also repeat it, as does the moon. In the background to the right you see another of my Halloween quilts, a twin sized, "Dance of the candy corn fairies".
It's my series and I have a lecture where I bring both sets and discuss working in series. FUN!
It's pretty simply quilted by free motion, swirls confetti, circles.
To place the tiny star blocks, after laying them out you start adding strips of fabric til it becomes the size you want.
Can you "Feel the magic"??
