Happy Halloween!

Posted on | July 14, 2015 | 10 Comments

Too early? Just being prepared.

This is a panel by Deb Strain called Moonlight Manor. I was going to cut it up and rearrange the pieces into a larger quilt, but I just couldn’t do it. I loved it the way it was, so the easiest solution was to turn it into a wall hanging. I did some simple quilting and found a stripe for binding.

I think this will work fine as a Halloween Banner.

Here are some of the pictures on the banner/panel.

As well as the banner, I have also finished the Halloween bunting. Looks like the decorating is all ready to go when Halloween comes around.

All these Halloween items will find a new home in the northern hemisphere.

I have also continued to play in my art journaling classes. I really enjoyed this one.

We are working hard at keeping warm here. Going outside now involves coats, gloves, scarf and hat. No snow – it just feels like it.

Stay warm.

Cheers, Karen

I have collected a ton of supplies for art quilting, but have yet to really jump on it. Love the idea but my mind needs a kick start to make it happen. Your journal is fabulous!
  • Quilting Tangent says: Great banner!
  • Rachaeldaisy says: You'll be ready for Halloween with your fun banner and wonderful bunting! It's such fun fabric, I love the dancing skeleton. It seems to be extra cold this winter doesn't it, I don't go out without all my layers either.
  • kelly says: We are on the same wave length! The dancing skeletons are great!
  • Fiona says: the halloween banner is perfect and I love the quilting..makes it look like cobwebs hanging.... love your journal page... Hugz
  • sunny says: I'm not really big on Halloween stuff, but that is adorable!!!
  • Mary says: That is a cute banner! I don't think I could cut it apart either. That bunting would go well with the banner, so if they are going to the same home, you've planned well.
  • Frances says: I have always loved Halloween, so this quilt is right up my alley!! I really like your art journal....are you taking a class?
