Design Wall Monday--Sept 20, 2010

On my design table today is a project started last year but never finished--and I want them done!
Aren't they fun!  As soon as I saw this the magazine jumped in my basket.

I stopped working on these because I did not really care for the border design of the pattern (Quiltmaker) plus I made this from fat quarters so there was going to be a barely-squeak-it-out component of the process that I just didn't want to deal with then!  So they have sat for an entire year and Halloween will be upon us again. I already cut the strips so maybe I will just make a brick or piano key border.   Opinions?  Other ideas? 
Go here to see the other design walls on Judy's blog.

LOVE this! It is so cute and whimsical. Brick border would be perfect and easy to boot... a good combination.

Those twisted hats are great. I think piano keys would be great BUT triangles that mimic the hats might be good tooo, not the easy half square triangles but the peaky one; isoceles?

There was one of these in our local show last weekend. It was done in halloween fabrics and didn't have a border. At least I don't remember that it had one. I'll have to check the photos on the CD I bought and see.

I officially want to celebrate Haloween now (We dont in Australia you know-it's a bit of a rip off really)

I saw them last year and I love them! Good for you to pull them into the open and get it ready for this season! I am a piano border gal... if you have enough strips left over.
