It's Halloween!



I finished this Halloween quilt last year the week of Halloween. I didn't get around to binding it until last night. I needed a break from moving and closing on both this house and the new one have been put off a few days. My kids are excited for the quilt and are sure I made it just for them! It's a throw size, but I saw a baby quilt that was the same idea at American Quilting at shop hop last year and made something similar in lap size so we could all enjoy it. Here is a picture of the center fabric. I noticed that Michael Miller fabrics has reprinted this same fabric and it's back in the stores this year!
Tonight I hope to start binding my Cherry Baby quilt during Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics. I've had it quilted for about 6 weeks now. It's always fun to delete things from my "to do" list.

The Halloween quilt is wonderful. Good luck with all the moving. We downsized to 1/2 the house when we moved to St. George 2 years ago, and I remember quilting helped keep me somewhat sane.

I can't wait to show my sister this! She's been wondering what to do with the new black shawdow (that's what i call it) vintage-y fabric like yours. This is a perfect idea! Thanks!
