|Halloween quilt ready to be basted|
My Halloween quilt is ready to be layered and basted. I have had it draped across a big easy chair waiting for attention, but last week was a crazy week! Between the birth of twins (great niece and nephew), a death in the family, a front fence project starting, and cooking for the funeral, I set my quilting aside and tended to other business. I was just not in a quilting mood.
I changed the design some from what I posted earlier. I gave him a Jack O'Lantern, changed the bandana to a bow tie, and changed the position of the hands and arms. This is why I like to applique the way I do. I can manipulate the pieces until I decide on the design I like best.
I added ribbon loops at the corners to add a punch of color and fun, and bordered it with a golden yellow fabric, also used as a narrow border between the red/orange and black. I decided against a pieced border since I wanted this to be quick and EASY!
I added a little embroidery detail to the stars.

I had a great Halloween print fabric that I have had in my stash for years. Unfortunately, I only had one yard. I used my scraps to expand it as I explained in an earlier post.

So, now I'm ready to baste and quilt. I love getting to the binding part so I can sit in front of the television and do my binding. Its a great excuse for just sitting and doing something fairly mindless. I'll post the finished quilt later. Until then, Happy Quilting!
