As Fall Approaches

Posted by Julie Luoma on

We're coming to the end of a long, hot and uncertain summer.  Our shows look like they'll mostly be cancelled until next summer.  We have to find new ways to do business. 

So it was fun to play around and come up with a halloween block for Quilt Block Mania.  I started drawing, or trying to draw, ghosts in EQ8, the quilt program I use, and spent more time learning some neat features in the program than I did producing anything.  I kept going back to these silly little ghosts and decided to go with them, just switching their eyes around, because hey, what else is a ghost to do in a photo booth?

  • Thank you so much! I remember using the photo booths when I was a child, and I have a strip of my parents in the 1940s from one, too. =)
