A Full Moon Quilt

bt1

This is Bev’s A Full Moon Needlework BOM quilt, designed by Buttermilk Basin.  Bev did all the embroidery by hand to create this sweet Halloween wall hanging.  She said to ‘quilt it Halloweeny’ so that’s what I did!

I first stitched in the ditch on all the blocks, then cross hatched the embroidery blocks with a beige MicroQuilter 100 wt thread. Then I had some fun and quilted spider webs in the four corners around the center block and added a spider dangling down from each.   Next was pumpkins and leaves in the orange sashing strips and loops and stars in the green starry fabric.  And in the outer border I quilted bats!

It seems to be haying time in our area so what better place to take pictures than in the field by my house full of hay bales.  Took me a bit to figure out how to hang it on the bale, glad I filled my pockets with supplies. Binder clips did the trick!

Had to walk through thistles as tall as me to get to this spot that I use often in the winter, I think it was worth it!

  4. Very creative quilting!!! I love all the 'quilts in the wild' photos. Can I ask, how did you get it to stay up on the round bale?

    1. I used large binder clips to hold it onto the hay bale!
