This was made by Carolyn Oord of Forest and Kerosene from Canada. These were sent in 3 packages with a 3 square strip in each. This was the least expensive way of sending them. Since they were sent sewn in strips, the construction of the quilt changed completely. I sewed the strips together according to the placement instructions that she provided me with. Taking ques from the existing decorative stitching Carolyn already had done, I used similar decorative stitching to top stitch it flat to the backing. This quilt features the logo from our Skull Appreciation Day celebration and many different hand sewn skulls. There are various kinds of fabrics, trims, stitching and beading. To see close ups of the pieces, visit her blog or the auction.
Girl Scout Troop # 202 from Eureka, California sent 12 squares that they had made. The troop has an existing fascination with skulls. Their troop crest badge was designed by Noah and made by Nerd Merit Badges. I own one of these badges, because I'm a good skull scout. Also, I used to be a girl scout, so this was extra fun for me. I arranged their submissions into 3 quilts according to similar colors.
If you have any questions about the auctions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am traveling this weekend, so I will reply on Sunday when I return. Next week, I will relist any quilts that haven't sold and some non-assembled blocks. There were a few that I either wasn't able to use or I wasn't able to match up to other blocks. I know you all can find some crafty purposes for them.
