Halloweenie Quilt, RR, and Stash!

My grandson, Jack's, (pictured waving in my earlier post) Halloween lap quilt!! I have just 2 sides left to border and it's off in the mail today for his 2nd birthday. I hope he'll like it. It's going to be the first Halloween he understands, I think. Still needs pressing, as you can see. And, I have to get on to making Kellan's quilt now. The little grandgirls are only getting bean bags this year. Next year will be their turns for the Halloween laps.

This has been so rewarding to do. If anyone wants directions, please just email me.... :]
The center panel. You can really see my ties here. I used yellow DMC Perle Cotton in #5. Quilt is still wrinkley...haven't pressed it yet.

The back is covered with flannel ghosties. LOL
Here, below is my finished part on Edgar's piece for our "Emblem of Love Quaker Sampler," RR. I've done the two medallions: bird in tree and swan with willow. Isn't Edgar's color palette awesome? I'm mailing it off today!

Stash bash! I've been collecting these for about a month. The holiday charts are calling to me first...but I have "miles to go before" I can pick them up! Halloween is still nipping at my heels!
Have a ghostly and goulish Halloween in the makes, dear fiendish friends. I'm frantically working on my sewing machine and final stitches on other RRs!!

Love it! Someday I would like to learn how to quilt-but as of right now I don't have as much stitching time as I want, much less quilting time! lol

Love your Halloween quilt! And Edgar's RR -- it's just so beautiful. His colors are perfect and what I love!

Stef said...

What a darling quilt for your grandson! And great stash Deb, can't wait to see which holiday chart you start first! Joyeux Noel has been calling my name also but I'm trying to be good and finish what I'm working on right now.

What a great RAK you got! Edgar's piece is looking beautiful - the colors are gorgeous and what a great lot of stash! I see a few in there I'd like to have as well!

Great quilt, too! What a wonderful gift that I'm sure Jack will LOVE!!!!

Love the Halloween quilt! Looks like you have quite a bit of fun new stash to keep you in stitches for a while :)

What a gorgeous quilt! The new stash is wonderful, too--I am sure you'll have many wonderful hours 'reading' the charts and stitching them, too. I love your work on Edgar's RR--beautiful! Lovely RAK, too--lucky you.
