I'm not a huge fan of Halloween as I prefer Christmas, but I got the priviledge of making this wallhanging for Stitchin' Heaven's quilt shop in Texas.

I need to put the other picture where the black rickrack is around the seam where the orange outside border is sewn on the computer so I can show that one. The black rickrack really set off the quilt as it added just a little bit more to the look. I didn't scallop the edges as the pattern called for because I thought that orange border was too wide (7-1/2") and it called for a scalloped border anyway. I will let the quilt shop do that part. But overall this was so much fun to do. This pattern is called Vintage Halloween and you can get it as a kit on their website,

Here are some closeup pictures of the blocks themselves:

No matter what it was a fun wallhanging to make! I also get the choice of getting it back once the quilt shop is done with it and it will be quilted by then! How cool is that??!!! I am thinking about getting it back since I have a grandchild on the way who would probably love to look at it when they are old enough to enjoy Halloween.
