Quilt with Skull

Laura Wike from Akron,OH submitted this quilt she made from scrap fabric she received at a yard sale.


I like that she used scrap fabric to create this quilt. The cool colors compliment each other well. The use of black for the skull, makes it pop against the printed fabrics. I like how this fierce looking skull is placed upon floral prints...a mix of hard and soft. I have a huge pile of scrap fabric that I'm letting my daughter and husband raid to make their quilt squares for our Skull Quilt Project. The quilt squares we receive will be made into quilts. This quilts will be auctioned off after the June 4th, Skull Appreciation Day. Proceeds will go to Becky's Fund, which helps victims of domestic violence.
