My partner likes The Wizard of Oz and Wicked, amongst others, so I decided to make a wall hanging on this theme. I was lucky enough to get hold of a set of seven fat quarters on the theme of Wizard of Oz and I've used these as the main theme of the quilt.
I played around with a few designs but settled on handsewing some hexagons together and then hand appliqueing them onto a black background. I used hexagons as it's a play on the word Hex, which is another word for the curse a Witch puts on you, which also ties in with the theme of the film.
I left four of the hexagons a plain black so I could embroider the characters needs on them.
After quilting in the ditch using monofilament I appliqued a black witches hat at the bottom of the quilt.
At the top I machine appliqued a pair of shiny red shoes using a sparkly fabric
which left shiny red sequins all over my iron. Cue a load of obscene language.
Luckily the slave was available to pick them all off using a pair of tweezers.
I bound the quilt in black, using a red insert just to lift the quilt slightly.
I've a bit of fabric left over so I think I'll make a zippered pouch with it as an extra and then it'll be packed up and in the mail tonight.
I've made my pouch as the extra for the swap
I used some more squares of fabric in a random pattern for the outside and plain black for the inside.
I used a tassel and a wicked witch charm as zipper pulls
This is another of my listed finishes for the FAL3.
