Holy Spooktacular Batman!!!!!!

Look at all those Halloween blocks!!!
I would once again like to thank everyone who was in the Halloween swap. It was an amazing time, filled with talent that just blew me away at every turn.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
Thank you for the goodies you sent!
Thank you for the sets of your blocks you sent!
What else can I say but,

Well, I was going to decide what print I wanted to use for sashing but when I laid out all the Halloween blocks I had, I saw that the quilt would be a super size just as it was placed.
I need to make a few more 9-patch blocks to finish out the last row, move and switch a few blocks, and then I will be ready to make the top!!
I have decided to tie this quilt as I do not want to quilt over all the wonderful work.
I am amazed and tickled pink with this quilt!
Hope you have fun with your blocks too!

Onward to the red and aqua swap!! We have #99 people in the swap. Boy, is that something!!
Happy Sewing!!

  9. I just finished sewing my halloween top together last night, and I LOVE it! I haven't been able to get a good picture yet, but I'll keep trying. I was just wondering how I was going to quilt it, and I've never tied one before. How about doing a tutorial when you do yours?

  10. That will make the cutest Halloween quilt! Remind me next year to jump into this swap too!

    I should be receiving my reds and aquas soon...can't wait to get started on that!


  11. You are something else. How you keep up with all this is beyond me! You do such a lovely job. Your quilt will be so fun. I'm going to cut my 9 patches up for the border so I know I'll need more. I'm going to wait until AFTER the wedding!
