My friend MT and I made matching quilts for fall last year. It is really hard moving all the way across the country from such a close friend, but MT and I stay close through not only lots of phone calls, but through quilting. We always have at least one common project going. It is so fun to talk on the phone with a sketchbook in hand dreaming up our next project. This quilt was so fun and easy to make. It's using one of my favorite blocks, super easy but when put together with lots more, you get these great stretched stars.
This border fabric is my favorite Halloween fabric of all time. It is from Thimbleberries and came out years ago. Above that smiling pumpkin it says "A Merry Halloween".
Oh gosh, look at that sweet face. I love her!
I used this cute black fabric for the corner triangles and binding. It reminds me of little bats.
MT and I decided to use black thread for the quilting. I really like the effect.
There she is again, sorry. But she's so darn cute! I'm thinking she might be perfect to peek out from some Halloween Cottage windows.
Today is cool and it seems as though fall has finally arrived. This evening after my busy day has slowed down, I can't wait to curl up under my special quilt and chat on the phone with my dear friend.... with sketchbook in hand I'm sure. x
