I recently angeled for a swap and the recipient mentioned a liking for mini art quilts. Now I've never made one and I was intrigued. The subject was one of 4 BBC TV shows she liked and I choose Being Human, it's one of my favourites too.
The series starts with 3 main characters: A ghost; A Werewolf; A vampire.
This is what I came up with:

Ghost panel - She used to make a lot of tea at the start as she never left the house and it was the only thing she felt she could do.

Vampire panel

Werewolf Panel

Finished Quilt. It's about 12 inches square.

 I love that mini quilt. I just became obsessed with the show and was thinking of doing a Teesha Moore patch bag for it. Great inspiration!

How cool, I love the embroidery on the spiderweb section! I'll have to show my mom, she loves this show.

Thank you for the lovely  comments! I rather like making them, so I've made another mini art quilt. But can't show pics yet as it's for a swap.
