This week, I finished the Halloween wall quilt, just in time for all the little goblins we expect to ring our doorbell tonight:
|I swear that bottom edge is really straight!|
No real problem, though, because they're very cute! I added the tabs to make it hang better in my house. Here is the very festive back:
Really, what else would I have used that fabric for? It's perfect here! And you can see behind it that we still have leaves on the maple tree. More raking in our future!
The only other thing I really worked on this week were some new Drunkard's Path blocks:
Gosh, I like this green so much better! And surprise--those pink corners make a very nice secondary pattern when they're together. The thing I like best about these blocks is that the print becomes the "neutral." I think I get stuck on the idea of using white all the time and forget that other fabrics can make very nice quilts too.
I'm really enjoying making these blocks. I never knew they were so easy or else I would have made them years ago! Really, they're each only two pieces. The curved seam takes a little getting used to, but otherwise they go together really quickly. And there are so many cool patterns! I already know that I want to make a second one using a different layout. I have some turquoise, which I think will make some very nice blocks. Maybe I'll start on those next week. (So much for not getting carried away.)
Everybody have a great weekend! Tonight I'll be guarding the candy bowl and answering the door, then it's more library time for me on Saturday.
|Gosh, I hope we have enough!|
Hope you get to do something fun. It's cold, so we should all stay inside and sew!
