Medallion Quilt: Hocus Pocus Part 2

After I decided on a name, I had to create a label. Thankfully, Urban Threads had just the thing.
I loaded it all onto the frame and got ready for stitching.
I decided that I wanted to use as many colors as possible, or so it seemed. I used all of these in the quilting. I matched the threads as I went along.
I didn't do any fancy quilting and there were a few times that I went a little sideways, but it all worked out.
I quilted the background for the center block with some slightly wavy lines. I didn't want to overdo it.
The quilting took a couple days. There were some times that I had to rip stitches, but not too many.
You can see some of the colors on the back.
Overall, most of the quilting is obscured because the fabrics are just so darn busy. I could have quilted the entire thing with the medium gray thread, but where is the fun in that?
These happy skeletons were pressed into duty as binding. (Pun intended.)
Quilted, trimmed, and bound! My first real finish of 2017. Bring it on UFO Challenge! I can do this!

  1. I love it. Fun way to use a lot of different Halloween fabrics. I love to look at quilts in the back if all different color threads are used. Almost like a whole cloth.
