Well, ladies, I actually finished the Halloween quilt. Debra's embroideries came Tuesday, I think, and in spite of being out of town Thursday and half a day Friday, I managed to put this thing together. Of course, the minute I had all the blocks sewn up, I looked at it and thought, didn't I have the cats facing each other? and I thought that I put the skull in the middle with the birds on either side. But no, I didn't rip it apart and start all over.
I had it all put together by Saturday and waited until Sunday to decide how to quilt it. I do not do free motion machine quilting, so I decided this would have a primitive feel, and did some big stitch quilting.
The colors seem exaggerated in this photo, because that black & white strip in the upper right does not stand out that much in reality. It's somewhat darker. Aside from the wonderful embroideries, I just love the colors.
It won't win any awards but it's fun and the colors are so pretty.
