Panel Transformation

My local quilt shop held a panel transformation contest last month. I totally blew the deadline because I had so much going on last month, but that didn’t stop me from making my project. You were supposed to take a panel and make it something more than just a panel.  I didn’t do that exactly. I saw this fabulous panel by Sheri Berry for Northcott, Costume Club. I took the panel and quilted, which you might say…that’s not really transforming it…stick with me people. I swear I did make it original!

(I bet you are wondering if I even quilted it after seeing this pic…)

(Do you see the quilting now? It is all the glowing green! – by the way the panel doesn’t glow, it is cleverly back lit with my TV)

(Light’s Out Costume Club)

This whole wall hanging came about because Anne is obsessed with Halloween and I LOVE nothing more than to put a smile on her face.  She fell in love with the panel and I knew I needed to do something that was going to be really neat in her 2 year old eyes.  In order to get the panel to glow I used Superior Threads NiteLite. I also purposefully chose colors to blend in when the lights were on so that the wow moment would be when you turned off the lights. Needless to say Anne was tickled!

Happy Halloween Everyone!
