    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.

    It's really cool. I almost fell off my chair when I opened the thread. What a surprise, but the more I look at it the more I like it.

    Chris, just called my hubby in here to show him that other bikers, also quilt.
    He has a Suzuki 1500 Intruder, with 83,000 miles on it.
    He wants to know what kind of bike you have.
    You really are very talented to be able to sew those types of fabrics on a machine that doesn't have all the bells and whistles. Looks like the teeth on the skull are over 3/4 as tall as the machine.
    That is one big skull! Should sell well around October :wink:

    How striking is that!!

    Chris you have unleashed an amazing talent for design, I LOVE it...although it is rather tooo life like, I was wondering if you added some glow in the dark fabs to highlight the contours, like the brow bones etc., now THAT would be scarey in the night...lol!! :D :D :D

    I love this- it is so original! And you are such an artist to get it looking so real. I just love a rulebreaker- and you are one! You should be very proud of yourself!

    Just wait until those girls at the quilt/sewing shop get a load of this one!

    You are one talented person with that designing and executing of your thoughts, chris. I have seen movie stars with skulls on thier clothing lately. Is it a trend?
