Off the design wall!

I can't believe I finally finished piecing an Urban Chicken quilt!  Only a year in the making, lol.

What started out as 3 lap quilts ended up one twin.  I started with a pink & orange quilt and a blue & green quilt.  (along with a bunch of random colored blocks for a crazy quilt) But once I saw them on the wall together I had a whole new vision.  I still have about 35 blocks left over, so I see at least one more Urban Chicken in my future.

But before I start it I need to finish this cutie!

As you may well know I am sightly....just slightly obsessed with all things Halloween.  Which does not go well with little grand kids who want nothing to do with creepy scary things. When I heard my granddaughter refused to get out of the car at "scary granny's house" I knew I had to change my decor because I certainly was not going to change her mind into thinking it was fun!  lol

I went on the hunt to find something fun not creepy.   I think this fits the bill!  It is a total copy of an 11 year old boys art work I found on Pinterest.  I immediately knew this was I was looking for and sent a message to get permission to use it from his mom.  She was kind enough to say yes!

Check out my knew potato masher!  Hint, it;s not really going to be used for potatoes.  Any guesses??

Another for Sharon

I had to laugh at Sharon's response when she saw it.   "I love what you quilted on it.  But now what am I going to do with this".  I love it when a project just evolves without a purpose in mind, lol.

Here's one without the flash so you can see the details.  

Boy the flash kills the colors!

Sometimes less is more, and sometimes more is more, lol.   I really liked the idea of leaving a large space between the channeling.  However after unloading and photographing I decided to reload and add a green channel down the center.

I love it!

A few close ups

And last up, the backing!!

LOVE this fabric!

And of course one without the flash so you can see the gorgeous colors.

Can't wait to see what you do with it Sharon.
