In the spirit of the season, here's a little Halloween fun. This little quilt (well, there are actually two, brought to me by a couple of friends who worked on them together. Relatively beginner quilters, although you can't tell from these cuties) will get many embellishments when they are returned to the makers. Tiny black buttons for mummy eyes, little bat buttons in the sky and orange yoyos turned into tiny pumpkins.
That thin black line next to the 9-patch in the upper left will get lots of ripped fabric to turn it into the perfect witch's broom.
Don't you just love that wonky zigzag border? I saw that on a site that was using this pattern as a Block of the Week. Wish I could credit the quilter, but it was not noted.
Raw edge, torn muslin strips make up the mummy face. Just a white oval until the eyes are added.
Yeah, the black blobs will get button eyes, too and a yoyo flower will grace the hat. Don't you just love embellishments?
The pattern in the blue diamond shapes is an official Zentangle pattern, named Paradox. Have you discovered Zentangle yet? Crazy great way to doodle beautiful patterns. Go to Zentangle.com to find out more. It's my Go-To way to relax.
