    I wanted to share pictures of my two Halloween quilts (I think I shared one before, but I took a better picture of it).

    This is the first one:



    It was made by members of a Flickr swap I am a part of. I collected fabrics for 2 years and then decided to have them make blocks for me, they did an AWESOME job!


    This is a raw edge applique I did:



    It is a pattern from Eat Cake Graphics. Someone posted a cat one they did by them, and when I saw this one I had to have it! I actually just posted a raw edge tutorial over at Stash Manicure (here) for how I put this top together.

    I also posted pics of all my other Halloween decorations (non-quilty) on my blog if you care to take a peek! :) :) (Link is in siggy)

    I love Halloween, but these were the first two quilts I have made for the holiday. I think it's because I always felt any quilt I made for the holiday had to be perfect. These may not be 'perfect' persay, but they are perfectly loved!! :)

    Thanks for looking!

    Yes I did a tutorial on how I did the raw edge applique over there today! :) It was so fun and easy to do.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments!! These were both fun to do!

    Cheers!
