Funny witch



I had a million things going on that I really should have been doing, but this was just such fun I had to do it. I had gotten this piece of witch fabric about 3 years ago from Keepsake. The catalog came and my friend Sue and I just went nuts over this fabric...had to have it...didn't have a clue what we were going to do with it....but had to have it. We each got a yard. It aged on the shelf. I was reading the postings on Jo Morton's Yahoo group one morning a couple of weeks ago and someone ( I don't remember her name :( unfortunately) posted a picture of a Halloween quilt that she had done using a cat fabric and the shoofly blocks. The lightbulb went on and I thought of the witches. When I got to the shop I showed Sue and she agreed...we had to do it. So here are my funny witches for Halloween...
This was just so fun to do. The second picture is a close-up of the witch...she's a hoot. I'm off tomorrow to Jacksonville for a big quilt show...we're vending there for the first time...it's a big show...we have a ton of kits for quilts and wool projects...I'll check back in the beginning of the week. I just uploaded the 2nd picture and Blogger just sort of puts it where it wants, but you get the idea :)

What a fun Holiday themed quilt! Just the perfect block to set off the brighter fabric from the witches. Finn needs to see these as she had some similiar fabric not long ago!
