Skulls and chains

Hello everyone!  I started working with my wild fabric the other day, just playing right now, not following any pattern. Just making blocks and seeing what fabric combinations I like.  I'm thinking these blocks are a little too severe...I need to take a look at my Freddy and Gwen books again for inspiration and see what strikes my fancy.



Enjoy!

I'm not sure if I want to use the skull and crossbone fabric in the blocks themselves or if I want to use it as sashing and/or for the border.  I do like that purple flame fabric though!

I originally thought of using different shapes in this quilt, large 12 inch squares, smaller 6 inch blocks and rectangles like this one.
 
I like the fabrics, but like I said, too severe overall...definitely need to incorporate some liberated quilting techniques here!

  1. I think the skull fabric goes great with the purple flames.
