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 :)
