    Heres what ive been working on lately. Now before you can say it yes this one is kind of a morbid design. It all started when i had someone interested in me making this quilt for them so i blew up the design for it but they were no longer interested the skull design comes from a sign i built and have hanging in my home. So to stay busy while i work out some details for another quilt i started this one it has yet to be quilted but when its done i might sell it who knows. So about the quilt the squares of the top are 12" blocks of black, greys and some beige colors i found and the applique for the skull is white shiney satin and black nike stretch fabric for the black parts its something to see in person for sure the skull is 4' tall by 43" wide all of the quilting i plan to do for it will be skulls drawn all over it with black thread this i suspect will take some time to do though so i thought id post the top and ill have more when its completed also pictured with it is my sewing machine to give you an idea of the size of this thing.

    Great job on the skull. I wonder where I can get one of those? maybe as a throw?
