PQ 7.5 The Bery Scary Topiary

When my youngest was three we worked together to make some Halloween topiary.  We still use them when we decorate for the season. They were styrofoam balls on sticks in flowerpots.  He drew the faces and they are adorable.

The challenge for this week was to use children's art as my inspiration.  I (finally) decided to make a table runner based upon those Bery Scary Topiary. 


 The quilt is approximately12 x 30.  It is uneven and has a raw edge instead of a binding.  The topiary are raw edge applique.  They may faces some day but, given that I woke up at 7:30 this morning determined to start and finish a project, and that I was taking pictures by 9....  well, we'll call this one done. 

Project quilting is the brainchild of Kim Lapacek  The challenges are thought up by her evil genius mother-in-law Dianne.  You can check out all of this weeks quilts at Persimon Dreams


  1. Love those topiaries! Great idea to make them into a table runner; that raw edge finish is perfect for it.

  2. Love the topiaries created by you and your son and then the fun table runner you made inspired by that art. Your son must be so pleased with your new table runner.
