    Emmaline's Halloween quilt

    We have had a stash of Halloween fabric waiting patiently for its turn for eight years: https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...ic-t60862.html . When Emmaline saw it recently she asked us why we haven't made a Halloween quilt. We pulled them out for her to look at and she loved them, especially the glow-in-the-dark ghosts! Since part of our Halloween involves a movie night of watching Hocus Pocus, we decided to make three quilts for us to use while we watch it this year. I finished Emmaline's tonight. She is asleep so she'll see it tomorrow.

    We bought these fabrics early in our quilting journey. If we came across them today we would probably leave them because they are so thin. But they do make a fun quilt.

    The back is a spooky graveyard. The last time we were at Joann they had some of this.

    Binding - I Hate when the binding comes out this way. I'm too lazy to pick out a section and change the length.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Yes we did. We always seem to go back to it. It’s a great pattern when you want to showcase the fabrics.

    That’s a super cute quilt! I used the purple kitty fabric in my Halloween wall hanging.

    I agree with Emmaline, the fabrics make a cute Halloween quilt. Also a big fan of the Yellow Brick Road. One of only a few that I have used more than once!

    Great quilt. Emmaline is going to love it. And the backing is perfect. Enjoy Hocus Pocus! That's such a fun movie.
