Happy Howl-a-ween, Revisited

A year ago, I made this mini quilt, called Westie Halloween Treats. I didn't get around to sharing it in the blog until April, so thought I'd revisit it this year for Halloween. Every time I look at it, I get a major case of the giggles.

Westie Halloween Treats

The pattern for this appliqué mini quilt can be found at FreePatterns.com; the link can be found on my Westie Quilt Pattern Links page. The original design features a Scottie and Chihuahua, but I made a few changes so that they resemble my Westie and Wauzer, Keli and Penny. 

The larger dog pulling the wagon is Keli, and I added a black button for her eye.  The smaller dog is Penny; her nose is another button and her eyeball is a french knot. I digitized and machine embroidered the text on the moon and side of the wagon. The pile of bones in wagon includes a few ceramic bone buttons from my stash. The yellow circles on the wheels and Keli's hat are fabric yo-yo's. Each appliqué piece was fused to the background with Steam-a-Seam light, then blanket stitched around the edges by machine. I quilted in the ditch along the borders.

The details are visible on the original size image.
