It's Alive!.....quilt top finished

Whew! My second scrappy character quilt top is finally done. I will be hand quilting it this week.

Back away from the monitor to really appreciate the details on this one.
So many teeny tiny pieces but the detail is fantastic.
This is going to be a Father's Day gift. When I was young they used to show all the old horror movies on Friday late night TV....I know some of you remember what I'm talking about. I would go to bed really early and my dad would wake me up when he got home from work at 11pm. We would stay up watching all the horror greats Lugosi, Karloff, Chaney Sr., Chaney Jr. and Claude Rains. The Frankenstein monster was his favorite character. Can you see it?

A huge THANK YOU to Ryan over at Zombie Pumpkins for the fantastic pumpkin carving template. Be sure to give this awesome site a visit before Halloween. He truly has something for everyone.

It's Alive! meausres 60 x 86 inches. You can find a full description of the process used to make it with my Spock quilt found here.

I'm crazy about this whole process....OK....maybe just plain crazy:) Enjoy!!!

Come join the fun....

I could see what it was straight away. How do you go about deciding where the tones should be (or is it a secret)?

He is awesome Carol! You did such a good job that when you posted the sneak peek I could see him! I immediately could see his eyes and the square shape of his head. I think you might have a new hobby in making faces! Awesome!
