    I have to say they are all so cute, but as always Sue is my favorite. I have a soft heart when it comes to Sunbonnet Sue!

    Thanks guys for all your kind words! Actually my hubby and I dont celebrate Halloween at all. The Frankie monster quilt I made for my niece and the scarecrow quilt is for harvest and presently hangs in my Sunday school class room. I have made dozens of bonnet babies quilts and love to make them. My husband Rick helps me baste my quilts becuse they are spray basted and my asthma makes it impossible for me to participate. He is also pretty good about carrying large loads of fabric from stores to the truck ...he has nice muscles.. heee hee We make doll houses together and he is fun to work with. most times. I have more quilts i can show you . How long do I wait between times so as not to be selfish?

    I think what you are seeing on the little Sue is the printed pattern of the background fabric... I was in a hurry or I would have loved to quilt the pattern into this quilt. I made 2 Christmas cats last year and used a swirl on white (tone on tione) background fabric where I quilted the motif and it turned out great!! looked just like snow swirls...I have to go to my Mom"s to photo that wall hanging and then I will share it here,too. I am very glad you like my work...I would be violent without hand work !!!! giggle

    Whatsoever your hand finds to do ...
    and, you done good!
    You can post often, but only three pics at a time (as I understand it) ...
    The program isn't designed to download more than pictures during each posting, I guess.
    I am glad you learned how to post the pictures ... it is so fun for us to see and inspirational, too!
    I never let my kids participate in Halloween, either ... but go figure!
    Our youngest daughter who is over thirty ... LOVES halloween ... she is a morbid type child, but has a good and loving heart.
    She just finished making twelve dozen cookies for our blood drive next week ... she does all our cooking for the family ... so, she isn't totally lost
    but, I digress ...
    It is a pretty special gift to be able to pay attention to the detail work of your wall hangings. (I know it is a gift because I am not a detail person )

    I love the fall of the year and only Cmas superceeds it in excitement and pure joy of course because of Jesus birthday celebration. I am quilting a wall hanging just now, about half done I will post a pic soon. Thank you for all the kind remarks, guys, I dont feel i deserve them tho,. For me quilting and crafting are so vitally necessary for my well being I am just grateful for the opportunity to do these. All things considered it IS pretty cheap therapy!! tee hee and it gives me an avenue to show love to so many people with hand made ,heart felt gifts!! Mighty good arrangement!!

    The Harvest Quilt with crows and scarecrows is actually a compilation type quilt.I did lots of fussy cutting and then made my own patterns I could not find on a preprinted panel, mixed them all in and arranged what I wanted to fill an 8 ft long wall space. I collected the different panels over a 2 or 3 year period nd then went thru my stash for pcs to duplicate what I wanted to add. I machine appliqued all the pcs and machine quilted it. I took the "pants" from one scarecrow and split them , saved some of the original background fabric from the panels and painted it to add fullness for the skirt. I named the scarecrows Mr A W Shucks and the girl is Miss Corney Jokes.I made up the crows because I saw lots of Heckyl and Jeckyl when I was a kid. It was lots of fun to make.
