Kelly’s Calavera Quilt

I’ve spent most of April working on Kelly’s awesome Calavera Quilt.

This was a crazy fun quilt to work on — and, despite it being 127″ long, I had fun right to the bottom of it. So no complaints from me!

Some close ups… I had fun playing with different types of swirls in the two blue sections, and with ferny feathers in the leaf.

Some feathers in the forehead, and eye. Plus, a lot of continuous curve in the white, as well as all the black is also done with a continuous curve.

I wanted a nice clean look for the teeth, so I ended up going with a 1/2″ piano key throughout.

For the most part, through the quilt, I tried to keep the same designs on the same colours – so all the light blue is done with the same design, all the medium blue, all the black, etc.

The back you can’t see a whole bunch, just general coloured area’s.

If you subscribed to my patreon page, then you would have seen a video with me talking about the different designs I was using.

So that’s Kelly’s quilt! Thanks for stopping by!

Later days,
Kathleen.
