For the past week I've been going bat-ty, as you can tell from the photo of my Halloween Pinwheel. It took me several evenings to complete the painting of the bat's, as well as, the pumpkin's. I bought a set of halloween themed rubber stamps made by Martha Stewart. I stamped the impressions of the bat's and the pumpkin's on the barn quilt and then, using them as a templated, painted over them. All in all, I think that it came out quite well, if I do say so myself!!
The next photo is a closer shot of the bat's and pumpkin's so you can see the detail. I left the lighter pumpkin color untouched, to give a break to the pattern and not make it look too 'busy'.
I had fun doing this one. Now, what to do next. I would like to make a barn quilt for all the holiday's. So, I guess that the next one I should do, will have a Thanksgiving theme. I'll start looking for patterns now.
