Its Island Batik challenge time again and this month I’m getting my Halloween on!
Create a holiday runner or table topper
Must use an applique technique
With it being October, I knew i wanted to create a halloween project. I started out by creating a Foundation paper pieced spider web as i wanted this to be my background. There were 8 templates in total and 17 sections in each template!
I then found a font I liked, traced onto heat n bond lite, pressed them to my fabric and cut out the letters for the words “Creep It Real” I fused the letters to the centre of my block and did a blanket stitch around each one using my sewing machine. I then made a quilt sandwich and did matchstick quilting all over.
I bound using my favourite technique by Victoria Gertenbach where the binding is invisible from the front and creates a lovely border to the back.
The fabrics I used for this project are:
Black and White from the solids collection
Sticks – Black Tweet
Pine needles – Nasturtium
Pine needles – Dark lagoon
Flower Zebra – Sherbet Twee
Its been another really fun challenge! and of all the years I have been sewing, this is my first finished Halloween make!
Thankyou so much for reading guys!
Until next time
Happy Sewing! xx
