Design Wall Monday--September 3, 2012

Happy Labor Day!  On my design wall today is the UFO Challenge pick of the month (I swapped #11 for this one), two Any Witch Way quilts. 

Since I don't have enough of the black print I used in the hats and inner border, this is getting a black Dimples final border and then will be backed with the orange print and quilted.  The pattern (Quiltmaker magazine, Sept/Oct 2009) called for false eyelashes to be tacked to the faces, but I think I may just draw the eyelashes on--I'm pretty sure falsies won't survive a run through the washing machine!  Once this one is complete, I'll work on the other Any Witch Way, adding free-pieced names that I made all of the letters for last year--when I also worked on the witches for the UFO Challenge in September!

Otherwise, I need to make a run to the grocery store today.  In an ode to our usual method of menu planning, my husband wrote "Dinner Stuff" on the list.  Guess I'll wander about and think of something!  See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times

Sounds like you have a battle plan for both UFOs. I love that pattern and can't wait to see the one with names all done.

Love the "dinner stuff" on your list. If I did that to My Guy (he does the grocery shopping), no telling what we'd end up with!

Really, false eyelashes? Dinner stuff, huh. That's as good as saying "dear, what would you like for dinners this week." Deer in the headlights stare.

Your ufos are going to look real good for Halloween. I love that pattern. Hmm I need to be thinking about dinner also.

Hope they have good "dinner stuff" at the store. your witches are adorable. Though false eyelashes would be cute, I agree that they wouldn't do well in the wash.

That quilt is so very fun!!
I love your DH's note on the grocery list. Too funny!

Kris said...

I love your witches. I had not seen that pattern before. Really cute.

The witches look great, perfect Halloween quilt!
Dinner stuff - leaves it wide open for interpretation. lol

Love your witchy quilt!!

I love the witches; however, I wouldn't be able to attach those eyelashes either. Your idea for drawing them on seems more reasonable. Your grocery list "item" made me laugh out loud.

That is an adorable quilt, Annie! Even if your eyelashes don't survive the wash, you can always redraw them! I have to laugh because "dinner stuff" is always something I write on my list!
Cheers!
