It Was a Challenge

You might have noticed that there hasn't been much quilting going on recently. I just seemed to have lost interest for a while. But I finally finished my entry for Keepsake Quilting's latest challenge -- Fright Night. For the challenge you buy a package of fabric -- six pieces, each approximately 18 inches by 20 inches. Everyone gets the same six fabrics, sight unseen. The goal is to make a wallhanging (30 inches by 30 inches) using at least four of the fabrics. You may add up to two more fabrics of your own choosing. You can also use the backs of the fabrics.

On the left are the fabrics. There's always at least one I never would've bought on purpose (that'd be the third from the right)! And on the right is the finished back......notice the giant quilted cobweb.

I call this "Ghost of Pac Man." It uses all six challenge fabrics (even the really ugly one) with one addition (the black). This is certainly not an award winner, but it was fun and a challenge.
