Guess what? It's June and I'm making a Halloween quilt. I know. Seasonally inappropriate, but it's just what I do here. :-)
I have been wanting to make a "traditional" quilt for a long time. "Traditional" meaning a quilt made of a single repeating well-established quilt block that has been around forever. In the past whenever I started to think about what to do, some other crazy idea took over and I couldn't settle myself to do something straight-ahead and old school ... but then I thought of this little twist for a Halloween version of the traditional spiderweb quilt and off I went.
Each triangle section has a fussy-cut Ghastly character (from the Alexander Henry Ghastlies fabric line) in the middle and then all the fabric strings are from about a million Halloween scraps I had.
Here is the massive pile of trimmings (which I am saving for who-knows-what in the future).
My table. And if I may say so, the spiderweb quilt is looking awesome! These pics are from a little while back and I have made more progress on it that I will post soon.
And now, in honour of the Queen's Jubilee celebrations I thought I'd post this pic I took of Prince Charles and Camilla (along with New Brunswick Premier David Alward). We went to see them when they visited Saint John a couple of weeks back. We were able to get very close to them. I thought they were a lovely looking couple.
I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network. Why not surf on over and see what everyone else is up to?
