Halloweening in the Studio

Halloweening in the Studio

Here in the Northwest, fall is at its most colorful.  The reds and oranges seem especially bright this year.  Or maybe it’s my imagination as I try to take it all in before all the leaves fall and we head into the gray and dark green months of winter.

Brightly colored trees were the only colorful thing on this dark and rainy day.

 

Maybe that’s why many of my quilts are made with the bold colors of fall.  Think deep and rich colors.

Mother’s Halloween

 

There’s still time to make a quilt in fall hues.

A friend brought me this panel, knowing I would get a kick out of it.  I’m not Mother on a Broomstick for nothing.  It’s called The Queen of ‘Ween and is right up my alley.

 Not only is it very cute, but it gives me an opportunity to practice my free motion quilting.  Since the panel design doesn’t need any additional activity, I’m using matching thread and following lines that are already printed.

I have several tops waiting to be quilted and this is the perfect way to get in the rhythm after a couple of months of piecing (also some traveling, and Halloweening and generally goofing around).  Although it’s hard to show it in a picture, this kind of quilting mostly adds depth to the printed picture.

Come visit our Shop page.  We have lots of fun designs to choose from.

Enjoy the beauty of fall and we’ll try not to mildew.  Seriously, we may have 4 inches of rain today!
