    A couple of better shots. I put ghosts and pumpkins in the squares and a rope effect in the long black sections.

    Yes I did and it was a lot of fun. The pumpkins are a little hard to see in a picture. I can hardly wait until October so I can send it to him.

    Awesome quilt! My youngest DD would love it! She just loves Halloween...always has a costume party! I didn't think she and her hubby would be able to do it last Halloween as they had just relocated to New Zealand for her to go to grad school, but we left from a visit with them the day before Halloween and the party plans were in high gear!

    Love the lattice effect!

    Well, I did not really pay attention to how many hours it took, but I started around the middle of October. I know that sounds like a long time but I did a lot of other things at the same time. I probably could have had it finished before Thanksgiving. I knew I did not have to rush it, so I took my sweet time and enjoyed it.
