    Hocuspocusville almost Complete

    This is my hocuspocusville minus the finale border, I packed up my fabric for our move and forgot to to leave out my border fabric. I didn't want pieced blocks in the center as I love this fabric and want to try and have a quilter do edge to edge in center, custom on the embroidery work and a pattern on the border. Thanks for looking. I beaded alot of my work and the beads really make it pop as they sparkle.

    wow, simply awesome, will the LAer be able to hop over the beads? I love beading and use it whenever I can. your quilt is beautiful. great work!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Looks great. I love your embroidery - it is appropriately spooky! We have a BUNCH of that graveyard fabric for the backs of Halloween quilts (someday) for the three of us. I'm starting to wonder if we'll ever get to them. I'd hate for Emmaline to be in college before we make our Halloween quilts!

    Love your quilt. I would have to do the beading later, the LAers I know won't work on a quilt with any beading for fear of beads getting broken.

    Thank you, I don't think I could have done the beading afterwards. I have a finnished a wall hanging and had it quilted and tried to add buttons and just couldn't get them to work??

    Thanks everyone, I thought about beading after but it's like double the work. I may be able to get someone to quilt it for me.
