This is one of the Focus Projects in Finn's New Year's Eve UFO challenge. For lack of a better name it is just called the Hallowe'en quilt. So what are you looking at here? Well, these are the various strips to make some liberated letters for a very appropriate Hallowe'en phrase along the border. This quilt is totally from the fabric stash but I managed to have enough of the same fabric for the background of the letters and the frames for the blocks in the center of the quilt. Imagine that! The two main orange fabrics even somewhat resemble each other and are a much closer match in color than what you see in the photos.
Here's a sneak peak at one of the blocks. These blocks are embroidered and dye painted. Some of the blocks are my design and others are pulled from various sources including but not limited to Bird Brain Designs and Kaaren of the Painted Quilt.
Remember when I was asking for quilting ideas in a recent post? This is the quilt I had in mind. As you can see there are words; in fact, each of the blocks has words on it. This is a very wordy quilt. Anyway, I still haven't decided how to quilt this thing. I'm still open to suggestions.
