    Halloween quilt

    My brother in law and his wife have two toddler grandchildren who my DH and I rarely see because of distance. So, one of the ways that we can be in their lives is by gifting a quilt. So I made this halloween quilt as a surprise to my BIL and SIL, so that they could enjoy it with their grands, and we can - although distant - have a small part in their lives.

    The panel is from Hobby Lobby, as are the other fabrics on the top. The backing is from Walmart and some 1/2 yard pieces I bought at a guild 'yard' sale. I really love the haunted houses and the ghost fabrics in the back. They look sort of scary, but warm and fun at the same time.

    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

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

    I agree with MaryMo. I love the back as much as the front. Bravo!

    And the kitties aren't scary for toddler kids, and no matter how old you are, kitties are always a favorite.

    How thoughtful of you to make this happy quilt. I remember my aunt from another state sending a quilt in the mail to my brothers and I when we were children. It was a count down to Christmas quilt. It was so exciting to open the package. Your quilt will loved and appreciated.
