I wanted to make a skull charm/scrap quilt in 1930’s fabrics when my Skull EPP shapes came out. Basically, I wanted to make a “ring” style quilt that was like a double wedding ring style quilt, but with these skulls.
Essentially they needed to be a set of squares, since the skulls don’t curve very well. This actually made it easier to make.
I took the background I chose and folded and pressed lines to follow/line up the skulls on, and then got to making a giant bowl of skull pieces to choose from. I did not have hardly any 30’s fabrics, so I grabbed a charm pack or two, and some friends filled in when I ran out. I had to throw in some solids to break up the monotony.
Once the top was finished, it was time to quilt it! I recently quilted it over a two day period.
Now just the binding needs to be finished. I’ll be sure to post a pic when it’s all done!
Do you want this as a pattern? Or do you think you could tackle it without one?
