I must be on some kind of blogging roll these past couple days! Because here I am again, sharing something else with you!!! It makes me so happy to be able to share my projects with the quilting community!
I was recently (like 2 days ago) part of the Wicked Blog Hop (you can read my post here) and was very sad that I did not have one of my quilts completed for you guys! SOOOOO, I busted my hump and got it D-O-N-E! (yep, a quilt from start to finish in less than 48 hours! It's a record for me!)
I pulled random fabrics from my stash that reminded me of Halloween and started cuttin' and stitchin' and this is what I ended up with! I'm really happy with the end result. It's a small little thang about 34" wide by 46" long. But I LOVE it! :-)
I did an all over stipple for the quilting (which is my go to stitch because it's just so quick!) oh wait, I'm jumping ahead of myself, I forgot about the backing!!!!
I threw fabrics up on my design wall randomly and starting slashin' and stitchin until it was big enough! (I love this form of piecing! No worries, it's sooooo freeing!)
I was thinking about leaving it out on my couch like this, but then decided against it! (Don't want the kids or dogs to ruin such a pretty thing!) Sooo, maybe it'll go up on a wall? I'm not sure yet, what would you do with it?
I used some Pearl Bracelets in Pumpkin for the binding! I think it brings the whole quilt together!
I've got a few more ideas for Halloween projects, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get to them any time soon, but I am going to try!
I hope you like the finished product as much as I do!!!!
