These pillow cases with a Star Wars theme will be perfect for candy collection on Halloween night especially since Liam, Owen, Claire and Paige are all dressing up as their favorite characters. May the force be with them. Later they can use them on their beds. I had to throw in some fairies just cuz they're so cute and my girls are too.
I started work on this little wall hanging while on retreat last month. I had two of these Halloween panels and two charm packs of Halloween fabrics I'd been hoarding for a year or more so it was time to do something with them before the kids get too big to appreciate them. The pattern is one I purchased from my local quilt store, Shared Stitches just before they went out of business and I guess it was a pattern put together by them because it has no publisher or credits on it so I can't give you any details.
The idea is to create a frame around the panel by using the Lil' Twister tool. It took some finagling because as you know these panels are never quite printed straight but I did manage to get the twisted frame to fit eventually and I think it turned out so darned cute.
And the perfect thread for quilting it was already in my stash. A variegated polyester called, wait for it - Halloween Delite! Gorgeous.
I put the binding on by machine, back to front and used one of my sewing machines fancy stitches to sew it down. I think it adds just the right touch, a little like tiny spiders maybe.
This one is ready and one more to go. After all I have two families of little ones to please don't you know.
Until next time,
