It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Halloween?!!

It seems that this was the week to work on quilts for Halloween. Two different customers of mine, from two different sides of town, have declared that Halloween is their favorite holiday.Billie chose this panel to work with. She added the nine patches, (I don't think you can ever go wrong with a nine patch!), and then a smaller border, to which I added the bats. When I saw the panel, I knew right away that the only thing that would work on it was spider webs. I used a mono poly for the webs, and let just a hint of the orange come up through the back to give it a touch of color. It looked great. I didn't want to take away from the print, and it worked.This is the second Halloween quilt that I've quilted for Kathy. She chose spiderwebs as well, but all over the quilt instead of only the center.Christmas is just right around the corner, and I've got a few of those to do already. A little bit of Rudolph, a little bit of holly, and we're there. (I'm not wishing my life away, but sometimes time goes WAYYYYYY faster than we like!)

BTW, does anyone know why I was able to do two loads of laundry, and cook four loaves of stromboli before blogger was able to load these four pictures?

Have a great evening!!

I love Autumn and Halloween quilts and have so far only managed to make one Halloween quilt. These are just great!
