"SPOOK-TACULAR HALLOWEEN RUNNER & QUILT"

Hey quilters.....hope all is well.....recently had emails from my Halloween One-Z-Quilt asking for a design if you are not using baby one-z's. Well....as a designer, I'm always thinking/designing ahead. While I am designing in EQ7, I always like to "flip" the same concept into different designs. So while you are following along the one-z quilt you can also do these designs of the Halloween runner or quilt. You will be using my same "easy techniques" for the curve squares to achieve all designs. I will be posting the easy techniques along the way for all designs. So come along and lets all have a "Spook-tacular Halloween".

"SPOOK-TACULAR HALLOWEEN ONE-Z QUILT"

Hey Quilters....hope all is doing well and surviving this summer heat wave. Crazy hot here in Texas! I finally finished my Stain Glass Window Project out of Bright Batiks by Hoffman Fabrics and quilted with awesome AURIfil Thread for our town Museum Windows. It was a long project and I will admit....bit off a more then I could chew. But it's done and on to the fundraiser table runner that will be used with the left over fabric. I was blessed to have the fabric donated by Hoffman and all the coordinating thread donated by AURIfil.
Well....it gets better....the month of August-Sept-ish....I will be sharing my Halloween One-Z quilt design/techniques with you. I know a lot of people are intimidated with a T-Shirt quilt. You will be amazed how easy it is with my fast & easy techniques. No need to worry about not having a "Long Arm"....you will be using your "Short Arm"....aka....your domestic sewing machine. Here is a sneak peak of the design....it's incorporated with 13 One-Z's (hello it's Halloween) gold squares are where the One-Z's will go.....you will learn easy applique techniques for the Bats and the Hexagon Spiders (yes those are spiders...a bit hard for me to design in EQ7) :-)....and you will learn my fast technique for Spider Web Continuous Line Quilting. I will be posting the updates on my Facebook page....I heard it through the Quilt-Vine...so follow me if were not already friends.  I have promised my niece to get this finished for her son so trust me it will be a fast-paced easy technique lesson...so start thinking of your one-zies....fabric etc. 'cause we'll be starting soon. Let me know if you ever need pattern design assistance....always glad to help with my EQ7....thanks!
