Finally Finished! Halloween Quilt

Another finish!  I'm trying really hard to knock down my to-do list, because I have more projects I want to start!

The back is fuzzy white flannel with some pieced scraps (my favorite cheap way to back a quilt!).  I had a little trouble squaring it up after quilting, so it's a little wonky.  But it's not as wonky as it appears in these photos...I was just in a hurry to hang it!  Sorry!

Binding is just a random grey with black dots, plus a scrap on the corner.  Because it's cute.  And because I didn't want to cut another WOF strip of the dot print when I knew I only needed a few more inches.  ;)

Wavy line quilting.  I wish I made it more intentionally messy and scribbley.  I kind of think it just looks like I messed up (see photo of the back).

I love these little motifs in the borders.  Frank is an inside joke with my husband and I, so I'm glad I included him here.  

Hi little ghost!

The mummy here just kills me.

Saved the best for last!  The little spider is probably my favorite (though I hate real life spiders!).  He's going after the candy corn, just like I would.

Happy Halloween!

  1. That quilt is so cute! I LOVE the little guys in the quilt border, and the hand quilting around it just makes it even better. So cute!

  2. What a great border! I love all your little guys hanging out there. Congtats on the finish! There is no better motivation to finish a quilt than the urge to start something new.

  3. I absolutely love it! The little dudes on the border are fantastic. I have some of the same fabric, but none of the patience!
    Fantastic Finish, Kristan!!

  4. Your Halloween quilt is so cute. I especially love the boarder.
