Soft and Spooky Quilt
October brings falling leaves, changing colors, cooler temperatures and plans for our region's favorite fall event, Halloween! This year, we will be likely using Zoom to virtually share our Monster Mash dances and creative costumes. No roaming the neighborhood for tricks or treats. Given these unforeseen circumstances, what better way to embrace this Halloween with a cozy crash on the couch with the appropriate quilt - all done up in themed print fabric, a spidery web of edge to edge quilting and a snuggly soft minky back!
Here's a picture of Morgan's super spooky Halloween cuddler -
I love the needle and thread details! This skeleton is stylin'!
The fabric is Costume Maker's Ball by J. Wecker Frisch of Joy Studio for Riley Blake Designs.
You can see the effect of the spider web edge to edge design that I quilted for her. I used a pantograph called "Spindle" from Urban Elementz. You can find it here. I used a silvery Glide
thread in the top and bobbin for a little sheen and it lent a gossamer quality to the design.
Morgan chose soft grey minky for the back of her quilt. If you have not made a quilt with a minky back, I highly recommend it. I use a batting when I quilt with minky, and it makes the quilt drape really well and it gives it good weight, so it's super soothing when you sleep or snuggle with it.
Here's a pic of the back.
Don't you just want to reach out and pet it???? Visual ASMR....mmmmm!
The motifs of this fabric are super cute. Here are a few more pics to show you some of the special characters waiting for some candy corn.
This licorice candy corn looks like a Cheshire cat!
If this trio showed up at my door I would scream!
I love the spiders, coffins, eyeballs, needles and thread...
The pantograph of spiderweb looks good!
I hope you enjoyed this special Halloween themed quilt. I'll be spending the evening of the 31st of October sewing on my Featherweight or quilting on my longarm. I hope you get to spend the evening doing what you love to do!
