    I 'still' do not consider myself a quilter by any means, but was looking at my halloween fabrics aquired over the past couple of years yesterday afternoon and decided I needed to stitch something.

    I started at 2pm with part of a panel and finished at 11:45pm. This is what I was screaming for help with at 10pm for help with how to make bias binding.
    Also, considering that we dont celebrate Halloween here, I just like the funky silly bit of it all.

    Thanks for your help with the bias binding. I'm so pleased how this turned out

    Beautiful...
    However, In The Usa...
    Halloween has surpassed all other holidays in expenditures except Christmas.
    Why, I have no idea...

    I have had several fabric swaps over the years with some lovely ladies in the US - I've swapped australiana fabric for Halloween Fabric. Last year, somebody sent me the panel - there are several more motifs left, I'm planning just to back them, stuff them and hang them from my halloween ornament tree.
    This year, a lady on a stitchy message board asked if there was anything she could bring to australia - I sent her $20US folding cash (collected over the past couple of years) and she brought me back halloween and christmas fabric - I worked it out to what would be about $200aust in value.
