School is back in session and life is hectic but it’s never too hectic to come out to play with the wonderful Carol from justletmequilt.com!
I love playing along with the Halloween hop even though, gasp! I don’t usually end up decorating for Halloween. My oldest has a birthday just before and I didn’t want to overshadow her birthday. And then, I’d usually decide not to decorate because it was just for a few days…most years, carved pumpkins decorating the porch and lots of candy was our contribution to the festivities.
So, over the last few years, I’ve made quite a few lovely projects that I wouldn’t have made without the annual hop.
Now, I say “made” but a bunch of these are tops. I think I better plan to finish them up and do some seasonal decorating next year!
For this year, I decided to dust of the witches’ hats and see what I could do.
Turns out, you really can have hundreds of yards of fabric and STILL not have the one you need! After extensive fabric auditions, I headed to the store because nothing was working!
The right one made all the difference. My apologies for the bad lighting….but I didn’t get the borders on until after dark…
They say you put a bit of yourself into whatever you sew and here’s me…
By the way, do you recognize the purple border from the reject pile? It was not destined for lattice but I think it’s nice as a border. The rich purples with gold and floating instruments remind me of the Haunted Mansion.
So, let’s set a goal for next year… I’ll add a photo of my bed dressed in a Halloween quilt next year..maybe after that, I’ll be inspired to make that Christmas quilt I’ve been dreaming of! One holiday at a time, right? Do you think a Thanksgiving quilt is a requirement? Hmmmm….. I’ll have to think on that one!
Please be sure to check out all my ghoul friends… they’ve been turning up the spooky this week! And be sure to stop by justletmequilt.com and thank Carol for putting this on!
