Carl Frankenstein’s Flower
Oh what a sweetie! He’s giving you a flower.. awwww……
Why did Vince draw this one you might ask?
Well he explained that in the original black and white movie, Frankenstein finds a little girl by a lake, throwing flowers into the water. So he joins in happily picking and throwing the flowers. And then they run out of flowers… so he picks the little girl up… and throws her in too! *gasp*
Thanks Vince, for that HORRIBLE story! OMG!
He then said quite defiantly “Well it is a horror story after all!” Insert exasperated *groan* and *eyeroll*
So there you have it. The first of two 24″ panels for your Halloween Quilt of Awesomeness. This would also be a great table topper, or wall hanging, or flag, or yes, even a baby quilt – Just don’t tell the parents the whole story!
NOTE : SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS!
That’s right. I purposely tweaked this pattern to have simple and straighforward piecing. It’s constructed from nine 8″ x 8″ blocks that simply fit together in 3 rows. And there are plenty of very easy blocks to hone your paperpiecing skills before you dip your toes into slightly more complex waters. Just make sure good ‘ole Carl isn’t standing behind you, all out of flowers!
Did you notice the different flower? I designed 2 flowers. One with all it’s petals, and one slightly mangled version. I thought I’d give you the choice. I also just noticed that I forgot to put the button in the centre of my flower. *sigh*
So where’s the other pattern you sneak peeked?! Hey!!
Well, I must confess that I had an amazingly terrible and stressful week. A close family member suddenly took seriously ill and there was a lot of scrambling around trying to figure out 24/7 home support. There was an outright refusal to go to the hospital *ACK*! Fortunately, it seems the situation isn’t perhaps as frighteningly dire as we initially suspected, and (god willing) things might actually improve – fingers and toes crossed!
So just one pattern this time. The other is almost done. Just need to finish up the instructions. Maybe by the weekend?
We have also heard the many voices calling for the Bride of Frankenstein! She has been drawn, the pattern is designed, I just need to finish transferring her pattern pieces into a nice 8″ x 10″ printable format. So there is plenty yet to come – stay tuned!
