Ready to find a home!
I used variageted thread again.
I really like the tones of lavender to dark purple. It makes the purple background a bit more exciting and seems to show off my swirl a bit more.
I love the bat quilting!
I am so glad I went with FMQ instead of a pantograph. This quilt really rebelled against dense quilting!
I tried my hand at a spider. He is solo in this quilt. I just didn't love him as much as the bats! I left him because I think he is a nice surprise.
I found this cool looking fabric for the backing and binding. The design reminds me of Jack-o-lantern smiles. The colors matched the Deb Strain charm squares perfectly. The googly eye fabric was fun and had all the main colors also. I love how it pops on the front with the purple.
Why haven't I used my embroidery machine for the quilt label before? I have NO idea. I plan to do so in the future. I am so sick of worrying about labels that I have printed on. I even was able to digitize my little butterfly logo!!!
