It’s done! I finished it just in time for the Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival quilt show competition this weekend. 🙂 Whew!
The challenge was to incorporate their fabric in some way and to use the Fall Frolic theme. I used only a small portion of the fabric, but it fits with the overall vision I had and it counts! 🙂
The challenge fabric is seen here in the two yellow leaves. There are four of these leaves in the quilt (as there were only four in the fabric swatch provided).
I’m happy with my two witchy figures. I used different shapes (cut freehand) for their hair and used different embroidery on each of the two cloaks. Their cauldron is emitting smoke in varying colors which is billowing out between them.
I’m quite pleased with the techniques I used for the background – I think the sunset sky and land work well and the contrast in construction helps achieve the look I was going for.
If you’re in the area, please check this out (along with my Modern Venus quilt) at the Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival Festival of Quilts this Saturday between 9am and 5pm in the middle school gym.
