Dem Bones | Seasonal Setting for a Foyer

Dem Bones in a Seasonal Setting

Quilter and teacher, Charles Johns’ interpretation for a seasonal makeover in Dem Bones really impresses us!

Dem Bones in a Seasonal Setting

Firstly, he did this duo of pennant projects, which can really translate for any season, but work so nicely with the scale of Dem Bones. It’s subtle and easy to live with paired with a variety of gourd-colored solids.

The credenza and window treatments drip with festive triangular bunting. Download the triangle pattern PDF here.

Dem Bones 4 Dem Boys

Karen LePage of One Girl Circus, garment stitcher extraordinaire, appears to have outdone herself (yet again!). Having a skater son herself, it was easy for her to imagine such inspired projects in which to use Dem Bones. {just had to include her fab sketches, too}

It doesn’t look like she forgot anything: Jams with bright yellow toggles and well-positioned zips; wrist cuffs made with cool hardware clasps; upcycled hoodies; vivid skull and crossbone appliquéd tee; color/patttern blocked loose fitting shirt; and a very cool backpack for stowing gear. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

Dem Bones | No Bones About It Quilt

No Bones About It Quilt

This quilt is such a huge hit with the pre-teen and teen boys in our lives. Dem Bones definitely transcends the Halloween season and will work successfully for projects throughout the year for those who enjoy a little ghastliness. The small scale, adds to the subtlety – particularly in the lavish Tombstone Vine print where little skulls dance amongst the leaves like florets.

Available on our DOWNLOADS page.


This quilt is easy to piece together and is great for beginners. Our quilter, Linda Spiridon spooked it up with cobwebbed patterned quilting and outlining details in the skull blocks that give the a little more dimension. We’ve paired it with some Michael Miller’s Neons (in yellow solid and gray/yellow dots). This combo isn’t that easy to find in shops, but we hear that Gather Here has the lot in stock for those who may want to kit it up.

Dem Bones is a surprisingly versatile collection. Not only is is a natural for Halloween-y projects, but it also makes a rather sophisticated option for adults who like a little alternative to the mainstream, and the young boys seem to love it for it’s Street Cred. The small scale, almost traditional in feel, patterns in antique-y grays and ivories, make it great for garments as well as accessories and of course, quilts!

We’ll be showing off some project ideas and a fab quilt project in the upcoming days.
