New Halloween Quilt

Hi everyone!  Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  Things have been hectic around here.  My youngest daughter is staying with us while her house has some repairs done on it.  So that is three extra people around here.  I am tired!  Lots of extra wash and extra meals.  That is a big change from cooking for just my husband and myself.  This should be the last week and things will get back to normal.

I did finish a quilt that I started last year.  I purchase this at Hobby Lobby and it is just a whole cloth design.  I love to buy those and see what I can do with them to bring them to life.  This is a little scarecrow that I worked on.
 
There were three extra pieces, two crows and the sunflower.  I sort of gave those a 3-D effect.  I added a little batting behind the extra piece and did some free hand stitching on them and attached them on top of the copied design at just a tiny bit different position to show it off.  It turned out really cute.  I also did some hand stitching on the face to bring it to life.  Here is a closer picture.

There is some stippling on the black background and hopefully you can click on the picture to enlarge it so see some of the detail.  This is so much fun!  You should try it!
