    This quilt is the attic windows block with kaleidescope centers
    I made up a poem to go with the various blocks which my quilter stitched around the border. (you probably can't see it in the picture. I think it would make a cute children's book.
    If you go out on Halloween night, this is what you'll surely find:
    Ghosts, Monsters, Scary bats
    Jack o Lanterns and Big Black Cats
    Dancing skeletons, Creep spiders
    Wizards, Witches, and Vampires
    Spellbound Toads, and Mummies that stare
    Go outside, if you dare.
    I think I'll just stay inside
    and watch from my window as the witches ride,
    Across the full moon, what a fright
    Oh I'm staying in on Halloween night.

    You just gotta love those legs chasing themselves around that square in the attic window. Lovely quilts you have made. I think that you have way too many and it might just clutter your mind so being a kind soul, I would relieve you of your quilt titled "fall".

    I'm sorry but you have a few offers ahead of you. Several of my neighbors have already requested it. :lol:

    The Attic Window is very cute and fun to inspect each window together with your inventive poem. However, my favorite is Treat Street and I have to ask, is that all applique? From your description is sounds like it is a pattern from a 1995 magazine. If so, could you provide the name of the magazine and issue date? And, if it is a magazine and you are finished with it, I would like to purchase it from you. Please show more detail of the Treat Street quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    The original pattern was in the Sept/Oct 1999 Quiltmaker magazine. I'm sorry but I don't have the name of the designer. I taught several classes with this pattern so the quilt shops ordered in all of the past issues. I don't have the magazine anymore, just the front cover.
    It is done using steam a seam and hand or machine blanket stitching. I added a lot of new costumes such as the dragon, Little Red Riding hood and wolf, postman, hula girl, nurse, soldier, chef, Winnie the Pooh, Ballerina, Bride. I think I found my magazine on e-bay, you may want to try that.

    Even though I am not a big fan of Halloween, I really like the
    quilt #1 Halloween night using the 4-patch blocks.

    I guess I should clarify I did not make all of these quilts this year.

    Why don't you finish? That's the reward for all your hard work.
