Frankenquilter

Say hello to Frankenquilter - created from a patchwork of parts, just as the original monster was.

He's the perfect monster to help any quilter celebrate Halloween! 

Made for the Witchy Stitchy Blog Hop, hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt, Frankenquilter has been haunting my head since July. Having finally collected all the parts, lightening struck to bring him to life!

His entire being is based on 2.5" squares, with pieced hair, eyes, nose, mouth, and neck knobs. Add in some quilting tools used in construction for good measure!

Oops! It looks as if the quilter isn't done stitching!

And so that no one forgets, or confuses him with his cousin, Frankenquilter wears his name proudly.

If you've fallen in love with Frankenquilter, either as this completed mini, or as just a block of his face for use in another project, an easy Frankenquilter pattern is available. Instructions/templates are given for either paper piecing or the flip n' stitch technique for block construction. Templates for all the quilting tools and lettering is also included.

Here he is, hanging out with other spooky friends.

One last note: some of the inspiration for Frankenquilter comes from my teenage years, when I got the chance to participate in a now-defunct live monster show at Universal Studios. Oh, how I loved dressing up in that makeup! Not sure if Bob, the Hulk look-alike, did though.

Happy Halloween and Quilting, from me and Frank!
