At our local show I purchased an Amy Bradley Designs pattern, "Planetary Party". I used some of her aliens to make a quilt for my nephews. I originally wanted them to use her creatures as inspiration and draw their own, but they're still pretty young so that didn't work out how I imagined. Instead I selected one of Amy's designs that looked similar to their drawings. Meant to be a Halloween quilt, it really isn't, but I like it anyway! AND . . . it's done and mailed!!!
|The quilt is long and narrow.|
It can hang on a door or be
used as a table runner. It's
about 20 x 58 inches.
|I hurried Monday afternoon to sew down the sleeve|
and label so I could get the quilt in the mail. I was so
proud they would get the quilt before Halloween.
|Then while loading these photos I remembered . . . . . THE EYES.|
I forgot to make eyes for the Martians! I'll have to get the quilt back
later and add them.
|I couldn't decide how to make the eyes. I didn't want to add|
a button or something similar. I'd like to make them some
type of thread embellishment. I'll have to think on that some more.
OK, now I need to start a quilt that is due November 9. Of course it's last minute. It's the only way I know to work!
Thanks for checking in.
