I LOVE looking at all the quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival and I hope that you will enjoy my offering. This is my Swooning Over Halloween quilt. It is a based on the uber-popular Swoon quilt by Camille of Thimble Blossoms.
I knew that I wanted this quilt to fit on the wall next to the fireplace so that limited the size. I scaled down the blocks and then went to town with my Halloween fabrics.
These are my favorite blocks.... each one features a Halloween creature that I fussy cut from a Nancy Wolff fabric I've been hoarding for quite a while.
Oh no... a ghost!
A smiling skeleton...
A devious devil...
A grinning black cat..
My long arm quilting gal, Cass, did a great job on this quilt. I wish it showed up better but hopefully you can see how she stitched a ton of different Halloween motifs into this quilt - pumpkins, a spider web, a spider, a devil, a skull, a pitchfork - just to name a few.
This quilt will be the centerpiece of my Halloween decorating for years to come.
Thanks Amy for hosting this event-- you do a fantastic job and it brings so much enjoyment to so many!
