Trick or Treat quilt

Cathy got bored during the evacuation so she finished this UFO. It is full of jack-o-lanterns and spooks. The front is 18 different kinds of flannel. The back is a pale yellow flannel. I SID around the embroidered blocks to stabilize them and echoed the figures and added some spiderwebs and moon and star for fun. The blocks are very light so I used PermaCore Naturaline for the SId and echo. I used a light gold PermaCore on the flannel.

I added pumpkins, oak leaves and 1-2-3s. Since I wanted to use the Naturaline thread on the back and did not want pokies, I doubled up on the batting. I used a layer of Warm & Natural next to the backing and then put a layer of Quilter's Dream Puff on top of that. I wanted to fill some of the fullness from the flannel with extra loft.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
