Vickie designed the pattern for this 32 x 32 inch quilt which is on sale at Quilts and Fixins quilt shop located in Jonesboro, GA. The pumpkin is made from chenille to give him extra texture, and showcased against a background of friendly ghost fabric. The pumpkin border carries out the theme of the quilt. 
 
Hang this little guy on your wall, add lots of candy and a fun costume, and you will be ready for Halloween. I think I hear the door bell.

Trick or Treat!!!

Get a Life!

Get a Life! was the featured quilt in the September 6, 2009 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt© newsletter. It was created by Vickie Clark. This quilt was recently featured in the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Show where it was voted “Best of Show” by the viewers.

Get a Life! is a kaleidoscope quilt. A kaleidoscope quilt results in a unique symmetrical design. They have been made popular by quilter Paula Nadelstern, who has turned them into an art form.

However, it is not the quilting that stopped people in their tracks. It is the exquisite beading that Vickie added to the quilt after it was quilted. This quilt has over 10,000 beads in the border alone!

 

Vickie says it took her four years to finish this 58 x 72 inch quilt. If you haven’t guessed already, that’s where the quilt gets its name!
