Into the Woods at Night, Part Two

This is a continuation of the Part One post on the quilt, "Into the Woods at Night".

I added a couple more layers of the woods, and added Shisha mirrors as eyes in the foreground.  I really feel like I captured the sense of going into the woods at night and not knowing what is out there looking at you.  The main reason I am scared of the dark!

Last two layers and the hiker 

Gray tulle covers the bottom half, as well as the flashy black tulle as the final top layer.  I added the shadow of the hiker, who happens to be my husband.

All layers pinned and ready to quilt
Have I told you yet that I love my new quilting machine from Innova?  It is so easy to do larger quilt pieces on this machine, and I can change threads anytime that I want.  I used 5 different threads to quilt this piece - ranging from white through gray and to black.

Here is the finished quilt.  It measures 31" high x 47" wide.

I hope you like it!


  1. Wow, Joanne, I like the shadow effect because there are grey and cream colors! The "eyes" are still my favorite part. Your quilting sure brought this piece to life!--Terry
