Terri was given the challenge of creating a quilt with a skull and crossbones theme and just a touch of red. Now that really is something different! Here it is before stitching started:
Terri is so clever, she created the skull and cross bones from lace pieces.
Spooky, yes? I started by stitching tiny micro stipple in the eye sockets and skull gap. Then tiny pebbles around the edge of the skull to make the skull “pop”. I have lightened this picture in the hope that you can see the stitching.
After the centre I moved on out to the large setting triangles and stitched cobwebs with red/black thread.
Terri placed Mariners compass blocks with a touch of red in the corners.Here’s the whole quilt finished:
Yep we were flying the Jolly Roger when Terri came to collect her quilt.
Quilting never gets boring around here. Thanks for the challenge Terri.
So what do you think? That really is something different isn’t it?
