Halloween Awesomeness is in Transit!
Haaalllllelujah! Haaalllelujah! *church choir*
By the grace of the quilting gods above, the top and back for the Halloween Quilt of Awesomeness are done!
I’ve been working like a madwoman all week finishing up the last little details.
like noses, you know so people can smell…
and tombstone engravings..
I don’t know how I could’ve done this without my new table!!
As soon as that table was set up, someone claimed the under left side as her new little hidey-hole reading nook..
and I’ve had some regular company during my busy evenings.
Hmm, it seems that KONA has changed their black since the last time I bought it. The extra sashing I wanted to add was just not going to work beside the old one! It’s visibly lighter! *ACK*
After frantically driving around the entire lower mainland in hopes of finding a better color match before school let out, I decided to insert a thin strip of a dark grey tonal between the blacks. It created a nice subtle inset frame without drawing your eyes away from the main event, but was enough of a break to distract you from the color difference of the blacks. And for some reason I didn’t snag a shot of it, weird! Anyway, you can rest assured I’ll shoot the heck out of this puppy the second I get it back from my fabulous quilter!
I also decided that an extra large Larry the Creature from the Black Lagoon needed to adorn the backside. Here’s my plan:
How am I applying the lettering you ask? Hehe, you’ll just have to wait until I show you. It’ll happen after it’s quilted!
Larry in progress…
It took me a whole evening to tidy up the all the loose threads from the back, and de-lint the thing! And now it’s on it’s merry way to Seattle. Oooh I can NOT WAIT to see what Krista does with it!
