Dashwood Studio "Spellbound" quilt

Coming in June to quilt shops is the Spellbound fabric collection by Nancy Mountain for Dashwood Studio.

Spellbound quilt. Finished size 53" x 60.75"

Spellbound sports all the classic Halloween motifs—black cats, hoot owls, snakes, pumpkins, potions, spiderwebs and skulls—set on dusky blue and black grounds. I was asked to make a quilt to preview this fabric collection for the Quiltex booth at the H&H America trade show later this month.

Skulls, potions, candles and spiderwebs from Spellbound.

The Spellbound focal fabrics were paired with several Twist blenders [from Dashwood Studio] and a Pin Dot basic (color: candy) from Dutch Heritage. 

The backing fabric is Twist, color: violet.

The free-motion quilting was a combination of shells, swirls, and occasional bubbles, with a bit of rulerwork zigzags for contrast. A faux piped binding in black and cadet blue was attached for an added detail.

Headed to H+H Americas

This quilt is headed to the H+H Americas trade show taking place the first week of May. I've taken Spellbound and Twist scraps to make two fabric baskets using one of my favorite patterns by The Textile Pantry

Make Nine Finish #4

I'm fulfilling one of the Wild Card prompts for Make Nine 2024 with this quilt. It was indeed an unexpected project. My favorite prints from Spellbound are the owls in the moonlight, the floral and pumpkin print, and of course, the black kitties sitting on the spell books.
