1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Quilt top done, almost ready to put together. on: November 14, 2005 05:54:20 PM
I couldn't sleep, I think I came up with the best quilting plan, outside of the type of thread.  I think I will quilt a huge spider web behind the skull itself.  Then a spider web in one eye, and the rest of the skull little swirlies like the fabric.

I don't have access to variegated threads here, I am going home soon and will shop around.

DH is a tattoo artist who likes "odd" looking skulls.  The skull is his design.  I wanted to make it look more natural, in shape at least, but it is what he wanted.


The close up is the fabric in the middle. I haven't quilted it yet, I'm trying to decide what to do with it.  I don't know if I should do another border around the edge in a darker material, to kind of make the eyes less obtrusive, and I'm considering buying a bunch of skull iron on patches to place around the edges/border.  The eyes were qppliqued on, the rest was strip pieced. 

Plus, I'm not sure what color thread to use when quilting, red would show up jarringly on the white skulls, white would look awful on the red...

I couldn't get the binding I had purchased to work, so I just sewed the top to some fleece and made a little bunting bag for DS .

Looks great! I really like the combo of the yellows with the burgandy!  Is the minkie as soft as they advertise?  (As an aircraft mechanic myself.....What are ya' nuts?  You know he's just going to get hydro or grease all over it!  Tell your hubby no touchie touchie!!!)

Absolutely!  The door I hung it on has hooks already for hanging jackets and things, but I could have cut openings for them to poke through, then it would not need counter weight.

Over the door organizer
I made a over-the-door-organizer thingie. It works fantastic. I've bought a few, only to find out that the metal clips you hang them with are to thick to allow the door to shut, so I tried out something new. Basically take a long sheet of fabric @ door sized, hem and sew on pockets. Sew a large pocket (this will hang on the other side of the door) and use this as a counterbalance. I used some rice bags to counter-weigh the organizer. As it is only fabric going over the top of the door, most doors should close easily.
