First, let me thank Madame Samm for creating this Halloween party and
Vendy Wendy for organizing this event. Ve have all been so excited to share our vicked little creations.
Velcome is an appliqued quilt with a few tricks. I am a true vampire fan and have read all of the Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles as well as others. I don't know why I like vampires, I just do. I've named this one Mystat. He's mine and my favorite vampire is Lestat. If you are a vampire fan, you know who he is. Mystat started out as a large drawing on freezer paper and slowly the details came together.
His hands and face were hand embroidered before the applique process began. Mystat is cute and evil at the same time. How does that happen?

After stippling his cape with bumps and stars, I decided to "man him up" a little with some free motion lightning bolts on the background.

A vampire needs friends, so I made a few vampire
Bats seem like the logical friends of a vampire, but having rats on the porch makes people jump a little more and ve like that...
My hubby made this vonderful stand to put my quilt on. The Halloween bracket on top can be replaced with Christmas or other holiday decorations. He is a wonder with metal. It looks like I will be making more quilts of this size to accommodate my new quilt stand. Vhat a great vay to velcome our guests.
If you aren't villing to leave a little blood, you should go on over to the other stops on this trick or treating excursion. There are many treats ahead. Thank you for visiting my little stop.
I do have a treat for you. If you vould like the template for the vampire face, it is free HERE.
Have a Happy Halloween,
