Witchy Ways


Ha! A bit late!
I had planned on making a fun "Witchy Ways" quilt for the Cherrywood WICKED challenge, and had many ideas...  I whipped this little guy up, and meant to work on this summer on the road... Except that didn't happen....
I couldn't get my mojo up and running to hand quilt it...
I planned on adding a lot of texture to the background and add some fun designs etc. I started a few times, using my green from my Aurifil 12 wt. thread sets...(can be bought in my shop)   Then got sidetracked...

Well, the contest has come and gone, and my piece was still sitting here...
Have you seen the winners? They are amazing!!!... See here. and here on the main page...

 See, I get sidetracked, again...


;-)


Last night I sat down, put my feet up,  and didn't stop!

haha...
Now I don't want to stop! It's almost done! 
It's not as complicated or "designed" as I had planned,
 But sometimes, mindless big stitch quilting is just so relaxing and satisfying!
I need to find black to quilt those witches.. rats! Don't have any. ;-(

  2. Wow! I am not used to seeing Cherrywoods in these greens. I must add these wickeds to my collection for some zing...

  5. I know how time gets away from me and I miss a deadline! Recently one challenge extended the deadline by a couple of weeks so now I will be able to make the new deadline! Yeah! Your wicked piece is very cool.

  6. I went to see the others - AMAZING! And yours will be just as fun when it is done - so far so good. I like it!! Keep it going and you are ready to hang it for the 'scary' holiday night coming up!! ;)

    And get that black thread! For some reason, I have more than I realized!! Not many colors, but black is there....... Black on black is an interesting - well, I found it challenging - to sew, so have fun!!!
