Hallowe'en in the house

My sister & her family have moved into a new house & the first holiday they will celebrate in it is HALLOWE'EN!!!! Naturally I made them a quilt as a housewarming gift & I wanted it to be appropriate for this first holiday, but I was not happy locked into the whole black & orange & pumpkin melange. After all, with the incorporation of some more mainstream colors I could give her something she could use year round.

So I made this instead. Much more versatile; goes with everything.

Unfortunately, the glow-in-the-dark thread made a slice in my thumb & I was not able to sew in the ends or turn the binding (although I did get the binding attached & the hanging sleeve finished). I hope to have pictures of the quilt up on the wall some day, but for now I have to make-do with my basting pictures.


  1. i love the day of the dead fabrics. i still need to finish up my UFO that i pieced together months ago

  2. Love how you incorporated the Day of the Dead motif fabric! Where did you get that fabric?
