BOO

"Boo" is finished. This is a small project and did not take a lot of time. It was just finding time to do the final finishing work. I like the way the spiders are made. A happy project.
I know the back isn't very interesting but wanted to show you the buttons. I used the witch hat fabric that was used on the front in the border. I decided to attach the two buttons on the back. I have to get to the craft store this weekend. I have been to two Michael's store looking for textile medium and forgot to get some of the magnetic strip stuff. I want the self adhesive kind. I plan on sticking a piece on each button. The quilt is small enough that it will stick to the refrigerator just fine and not get in the way. At first, I tried jute cord with an end tied around each button. That didn't work because the quilt buckled when I held the middle of the cord.
I love fall quilts! It is such fun visiting blogs and seeing all the quilts both for Halloween and fall itself. I know Halloween is not recognized everywhere in the world and it isn't fall in the southern hemisphere. But we sure love it here.

Looking forward to another visit from you soon.

  1. Cute, cute, cute Karen! I like the spiders too. ;) Why not try a little loop of yarn around each button, instead of one long piece? Have a great weekend! :)
