The Grim Ripper........

Saw this very cute wall hanging on a friend's blog, Gari had made one, the pattern is from Fons and Porter. I came across it right when I was ripping out the quilting from Tobacco Road, and it seemed a very appropriate thing to have hanging on the wall in my longarm area. It's also "that" time of year, Halloween, when these type of decorations are all around us!
I used a novelty black fabric with sewing notions printed on it, "Bare Essentials" from RJR fabrics. The background and ripper handle are printed with quilting/sewing words, "TangledThreads" by Red Rooster fabrics.
After I was all done I realized I should have embroidered Grim Ripper, darn! Perhaps I will make another some time, it didn't take long.

I love it! Mine is currently hanging inside the door to the studio but will soon be moved to the sewing room where I rip the most: piecing seems to be my biggest problem. :-(
