A leftover design wall for Monday

Actually my design wall is blank at the moment - I know - how sad is that? But this is what it looked like on Saturday- ta dah!



The Halloween Swoon quilt top is done! I thought about floating the blocks from the border but all I have left of the background fabric is a sliver of fabric. I love that Holly Holderman dot and if I ever see it again I'm buying 5 more yards. This is the final block I sewed together.



Notice the evil "blaaahh" under the devil face. That sounded just like my evil laugh when I put the borders on this quilt. I have had the border fabric in my stash for years watitng for just the right quilt and this is it. There is nothing on the selvedge to tell me the designer. All I know is that it came from Joanns. And check out the little cornerstones.



Yikes! Spiders! Spiders on a glittery polka dot background -- Perfect. I sent this top off to my long arm quilter yesterday and she says she'll have it back to me by the beginning of October so I'll be displaying it then. Can't wait-

Hope you have a wonderful week. My undergarment issues are under control and I'm getting more mobility in my left hand. On Thursday I go back to have it checked again and the doctor said she may recast it since this one is a little loose- ugh - I like it being loose. Two weeks down - four to go!

Happy stitching-
carol fun

  7. I love Swoon! I keep saying I'm not going to buy any more patterns, but there are two on my list (for when I breakdown and spend the money!) and Swoon is one of them. I love what you've done with it! Toni
