Just In Time for Halloween....Sort of....

During the freak snow storm on Saturday I was able to get, what is for me, quite a lot of sewing done.  I managed to complete this Halloweeen top that I had started last season.  I had a few more blocks to put together, then let my DDs arrange them and was able to get them stitched together.  I was hoping to have it completed by this Halloween.  Oh well, at least the top is don.  I wonder if I will get it quilted before next Halloween? 

I used a Moda Haunted Mansion by Sanae Layer Cake I had and tried the Disappearing Nine Patch.  Every quilt teaches us something and what I learned here was that, in my humble opinion, DNP needs a solid in there somewhere.  My girls love it though and that's what counts.

I was on a roll so I dug out a UFO quilt I have planned for my own bed.  It is a Triple Irish Chain I am planning to hand quilt.  If this October snow storm is any indication of the winter we are in for, hand quilting this will be a cozy way to pass the winter nights.

I am loving this quilt and whenever I pull it out wonder why I don't have it finished yet.  Oh well, a little bit of progress is still progress!

Another thing I am trying to make progress on is checking out all the fantastic quilts on Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival.  I think I am only a quarter of the way through, sitting to visit a few blogs at a time when I have a minute.  If you haven't been over there yet, grab some tea and take a look!

Until Next Time,
