Quilt Square for Lisa

One of the members at 123 Stitch has organized a project to make a memorial quilt for the family of Lisa Roswell, the owner of the Primitive Needle, who passed away recently, a victim of the Ohio floods. Volunteers were asked to stitch a square with a Halloween theme. I started with this freebie. Lots of nice patterns on this blog, by the way. I saved that spider and web for last, and it was just too much for me to get that back-stitching done correctly. I gave up and frogged some. Then I looked for little motifs to substitute for that portion of the design. The black bird comes from a Drawn Thread piece. The cauldron is thanks to Helga Mandl. The moon, key and star are all from works by Lisa. Only used two colors - DMC 3799 and 920. It was a little small and needed something to tie it together so I stitched a border. This is done on off-white Monaco.
