She’s on the wall!

Ms. Witchy is finally finished!

She’s actually already at her destination and probably on the wall by now! I’m really happy with the way this quilt worked out. The pattern was very straightforward and easy to read….it’s just a lot of work!

I didn’t add all the vines and berries that the pattern suggested. Nor did I add the spider and web. I really don’t think they were needed and I was running out of time too!

I stitched through all the hair with curving lines sort of following the hair strands, but if I went out of the “lines” I didn’t mind. It added a lot of texture and made it look real!

All in all, it was a fun adventure! I was going to make one for myself and will still do that – just not in time for this Halloween!

Fabulous! This was definitely a labor of love/journey of a quilter combined. Just wonderful! Lucky recipient is all I can say. Glad you are feeling better.

Wow Terri, it's super fantastic, what a great job you did of the whole thing. No wonder you want one for yourself. I'd be sad to let it go if I'd made it.

Congrats, Terri. She turned out great. I hope you DO get to make one for yourself to enjoy!

She is a beauty, Terri -- you can see all the work that went into every detail. What a delight to see on the wall, I'm sure!

vraiment très réussi ,j'ai suivi avec intérêt le déroulement de votre quilt ,cela m'a donné l'idée d'en faire un ,j'ai acheté "moon shadow" mais toutes les explications sont difficiles à comprendre et il n'y à pas de photos du montage. je suis obligée d'attendre la venue de mon fils (qui revient des usa)en octobre pour me traduire ,patience en attendant mais ce n'est pas l'ouvrage qui manque
