Hi there and welcome to my day on the wonderfully wicked blog hop ! thanks to Madame Samm and Wicked Wendy for hosting and organising this hop.
while wondering what kind of quilt to make I discovered that alexander henry had produced some new gorgeous ghastlie fabric and when I saw the web fabric it was love at first sight !
so that put a halt on my plans to make a quilt for this hop as I just have to include this fabric ... but I have made a mock-up of the quilt I plan to make soon - maybe in time for next year's hop !
Inspired by the web fabric I've decided to make a spiderweb quilt and here it is with the web fabric in natural as the background
and here it is using the mauve web as the background...
Then again, I might just end up using black for the background and use the web fabric for the quilt backing !! but enough of my dream ghastly quilt and onto some wicked things I made for this hop ...
earlier this year I made this halloween house quilt block for a flickr swap
I loved how it turned out so I've made a mini quilt for me - its 12"x14" - just the right size for a table topper quilt holder! its based on a quilt by Stephanie Sims for Clothworks
I also made a hexy mug rug ...
while I was searching for another little project to make for the hop I came across a tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman for a barn bats mini quilt - it seemed perfect so I had to make one ! I made it in yellows and oranges with grey and black.
I had such fun making it and I fell in love with those little bats ...that I just had to make a another one - this time in orange, green, purple, and black
they are both echo quilted around the bats and have black and white polka dot backings and bindings.
what do you think - aren't they just the cutest !! so would you like to win one ??
I'm actually going to make another one in the purple, orange, and green colours to give away as the one in the photo isn't actually square - one side is 1/2 inch shorter than the other ! obviously I didn't square up the bottom properly and I only just discovered it when I went to take the photo !
the remake will be very similar but of course not identical and I might change the colour layout so that there is a green row in the middle rather than two orange rows !
so if you'd like to win one of the barn bat quilts then just leave a comment letting me know which one you'd choose, either yellow and orange or purple, green, and orange :)
if you follow my blog or on instagram you get an additional entry! Just let me know that you do by leaving a separate comment.
I'll get the random generator to pick a name next Tuesday 5 November - Melbourne Cup Day in Australia - at 6pm (Australian EST) and I'll announce the winner here and contact them by email too.
its the last day for this hop so make sure you visit the other wicked
and just before I go I want to wish my mum a happy birthday for tomorrow - love you and kisses from pippi too ♥♥♥
