Woo hoo! it's done, the binding is on! This is the project I did for Lazy Gal's First Ever Class. Making the top was the easy part, it was the handquilting that seemed to take forever, but after taking a break from it, I was able to finish it quite quickly! This quilt was made completely from scraps from my stash as was the binding. If I had more purple or green scraps I may have done the binding in those colours, but I had lots of orange still, so orange it is. I will hang this in my front window for Halloween, I think.
I outlined the letters in a variegated orange embroidery floss (but 3 strands was a little heavy, next time I would use 2 strands), and then did spiderwebs in a variegated purple hand quilting thread from Coats, in the large open spaces. Then I handquilted parallel lines along the outer edge where there were no spiderwebs.
