Design Wall Monday--Sept 17, 2012

On my design wall is the UFO of the month--in my case I swapped out #11 for my two Any Witch Way quilts.  I'm working on the second one now, adding free-pieced names.

Kachan's name is finished, now that I added spacers between the letters and trimmed to final size.  These witches have not yet received their eyebrows and eyelashes, but I'll do their makeup before basting the quilt sandwich.

Jerryl is in a different font.  I had fun changing up the style for each witch. 

Going clockwise, Rafilda is next, and lastly, Pagel.  The name Rafilda I first saw in Harry Potter, but Kachan, Jerryl and Pagel were real names from my transcription work.  I made a list of unique names over the course of about a year.  I don't have a lot of the Dimples fabric left so I need to be very conservative with my leftovers so I can fill out the borders.  It has been fun to play with these letters. Method is from Tonya Riccuci's Word Play Quilts book.

Your comment about doing the witches' makeup made me smile. Just an odd visual image it created, I guess.
You are doing a beautiful job on the names! I will keep my fingers crossed (for a minute) that you don't run out of fabric!!

Annie, these are just darling! I love the way their hats are incorporated into the center block. And their hair! It's all just fun! Was this a kit? I can't wait to see it finished! :)

The names are terrific for witches and your idea of making them the border is great! Can't wait to see it all completed!!

What a fun quilt!

I have these witchy ladies on my to-do list, but anything I'd do would pale in comparison to your wonderful project. Every time you complete another step, you've added to its richness and uniqueness.

Wouldn't those patients be surprised to see their unique names on such an adorable quilt!
Cheers!
