Something Wicked QAL Week 5 – Fall 2020

All the info for the Something Wicked QAL – Week 5 Fall 2020. I thought I would post a bit about Week 5 of the Something Wicked QAL before we move on to other things.

2021 goal is to keep this space a higher priority. wink wink. I am not the best writer. Which is why I make and don’t write as much.

All the quilts that where worked on and finished during the quilt along are just all so fun!

I was able to fully finish this fun witch hat. The original Something Wicked Quilt pattern. I did make the hat from one fabric. Yes I did still cut it up into rectangles. Lol. But that is the quickest way for me since I chain piece the whole top. I did add a little flare at the bottom as well by using metallic felt from Benzie Designs. I cut out stars and used DMC floss to basically hand tie them across the bottom of the hat.

For the background I used the Art Gallery Line Spooky ‘N’ Sweet and added in a few coordinates to round the number of prints up to 26. I think there is actually 24ish. The hat is Rifle Paper Company for Cotton and Steel. The back is the amazing panel from the Art Gallery Spooky ‘N’ Sweet line. It was just perfection for the back.

It was a fun one in all the stages but I loved loading it on my longarm and seeing the sparkle of the hat. I quilted it with giant loops. Are you surprised? I love good loopy quilting.

During Week 5 we talk about finishing your quilt. I shared this video of my free motion quilting on my domestic machine in the weekly newsletter. Here is the link. It’s a private video only viewable with the link so you won’t find it just going to my YouTube. I quilt a smaller doll quilt in the video which is a great choice to start on since it’s small and manageable. But I also quilt a row or two on an Echinacea Flower Quilt at the end so you can see the wrestle with a bit larger throw size quilt.

Speaking of doll quilts.. If you didn’t know my daughter and I share a passion for American Girl Dolls, I have mine from my childhood and we both have collected more. I LOVE to make doll rooms and my daughter has inherited that as well. lol. So I made two small doll quilts from the Mini Candy Corn free pattern from the Something Wicked QAL newsletters. I will be sharing these mini quilt FPP patterns next year.

We also chat a bit about binding in Week 5 to finish your quilt and since I hand bind I shared how I do that in my stories on Instagram and saved it to the Something Wicked Highlight on my IG page. You can check that out if you are, or aren’t, a hand binder.

It was hard to get a picture of the two doll beds together but here they are in separate pictures.

Lastly I stopped by Bernina of Naperville to see my quilt hanging up and that was so fun!! I have since been back a few times to buy fabric. LOL. What can I do? For all your locals she has Heather Ross Malibu in Stock, as well as Tula Pink Line Work, and Ruby Star Society Flurry and Candlelight among many others that are sooo tempting. I’m pretty Thankful Gayle and her team are my local quilt shop.

I do have my Ruby Star Society Flurry Santa Hat top done as well. It is in a long line of tops waiting to be quilted. But I do need to get the Christmas ones done asap, huh?

I’m pretty happy with how great the Something Wicked QAL went and am so thankful to all our sponsors and participants.
