I have been working on a sample quilt using my Halloweensy Spider pattern.(I was crunched for time and just hung it from my shelves in the sewing room - not a particularly attractive way to display a quilt, but at least you can see it!) The spider web in the center is beaded with tiny mirrored beads. The fabric has touches of the pink throughout, although you don't see much in the photo.
|Detail of spider in center panel. I used one of the faces from the fabric.|
|I added a fly in the upper left hand corner. She is caught in a quilted spider web and like in the old movie, "The Fly", she is crying, "Help me! Help me!" (I just couldn't resist.) Her face is also taken from the fabric.|
Now I'm anxious to get in there and work on a new design!

My Gosh, what a quilt!!! I love it Linda, but I must admit, even though I have seen the old Vincent Price version of " The Fly " many times, as I look at your quilt, I'm feeling just a little sorry and nervous for the poor little fly, LOLOL. Believe me when I say I do no like flies, but still...the 'Help Me', 'Help Me' tugs at my heart strings just a bit. *wink* Hugs and Blessings. Now I'm on my way over to Stash Manicure and I will be sure to tell them you sent me!!!ReplyDelete
