    This is my version of the BOM from Pearl P. Pereira. It was my first experience with raw edge applique and invisible thread. Also the first time I FMQ besides my scarecrow quilt I posted earlier. Learned a whole big lot! I hated the steam a seam 2 suggested because it did not seem to stick very well for all the smallest pieces . Went with wonder under lite but it got a little stiff- tried just the edges being fused and cutting out the middle part of wonder under but got a ridge. If anyone knows of a better product or way please advise me of it.

    I have had a lot of inquiries so I am posting lots of pics. Constructive criticism and helpful suggestions welcome.

    This is the whole quilt. You can see the center block is the biggest change.

    Can you see the spider web?

    I redrew the brooms and opened the cat's eyes.

    So this is the last thing I need to do. As you can see I redrew the witch block a little. But the quilting- do I keep this round stitching that I have started or should I rip it (will it show?) and restitch with a horizontal back and forth sort of hazy like?

    Love it! Love that you posted so many closeups so we could really check it out. Your FMQ is AMAZING. Love the spooky zombie hand and spiderweb. You are obviously a natural at FMQ! Can't offer any advice on applique as all I have ever used is wonderunder myself. I too find it stiff so don't do too much applique except in a wallhanging.

    This quilt is great!

    Laura, Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous. I also am in awe of you creativity and talent. I love all the projects you create and look forward to you posting the results.

    You said you used the raw edge applique with invisible thread, what type stitch did you use? If anyone else lets you know of a better way to fuse your fabric please post and share. Wonder job!

    I used smoke and clear invisible thread and two different size zig zags. On my machines they are a 5 and 6- I have Pfaffs.

    Don"t know if it is appropriate for your need, but you can buy a glue that is for attaching patches. I can't remember the name, got it at Hancocks

    This is a beautiful quilt. As for the quilting around the witch - I would just stay with what you have started - it looks great!

    Very, very cute! I don't like Halloween but I would definitely hang that on my wall. Excellent work and I would continue as is with the moon. It looks great!

    Where did you find this pattern? It is so cute. I would love to make one of these next year. I haven't gotten to applique' yet, but this looks like a good challenge. Is a kit or pattern available for purchase? If so, where?
