About five years ago (maybe more) I saw this pattern for a witch quilt that I loved and had to have. I got the pattern, the fabrics and everything I would need to complete the project, but never got around to actually making it. Every time I would take the pattern out and see all of the pieces, I would get intimidated and put it back in the drawer. Until this year!!! I was going on a weekend quilt retreat a few weeks ago and decided that this was the perfect time to get this witch done. No cooking, cleaning, puppy care or anything but sewing for three days!!! I was committed to only this project all weekend.
|There were hundreds of pieces! All of the little details make it so beautiful though!|
|Each strand of hair is a different color fabric and then when I quilted her, I used metallic threads and clears just to add some sparkle. I did tons of fly-away hairs on the quilt too.|
The spider in the upper corner was fun to sew on. I made the web in invisible thread just like they are in real life. Don't you just love her strands of hair all over the place? That might be my favorite part of the finished product.
