Meanwhile, witches on the quilting front...

The two "Any Witch Way" centers are complete except for the eyelashes. My photos are not the best but you can see how bright and fun the colors are. I used a "Fairy Frost" fabric in green and peach for the witches' faces. I love how the sheen shows up, even in these so-so photos!

This one below was the first one I put together. Again, the colors are not true. I'll take another shot of each in daylight once I get the borders/quilting done.

All of the fabrics for the hats and hair I bought at JoAnn's as fat quarters. I love this black and white print that reads gray and has flowers and birds---kind of spooky looking I thought.

And below is a closeup of the black hat fabric with the gray swirls. The black multiprint I had in my stash and also the pink for the lips.

I've had lots of fun with this project though it is definitely not for a beginner--I counted 19 pieces for each witch! My witches seem to have very long chins but most witches do, don't they?

Aren't these so great?! I enjoy the way you share your fabrics and how they were found and chosen.
