    I made a halloween type quilt with a pattern in a magazine. I will post it in a bit. I used lots of halloween fabric but also included some fall colored plaids, loved it so much I paid to have it quilted. You'll love it too.

    If I had the houses-and-bats piece I'd fussy cut all the bats, and make them my focus! I love bats, and those are not the usually depicted "vampire" types : )

    Go for it!!! That would allow you to keep the prints recognizable and also make it interesting.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!
