It's Halloween time!

I am entering this into the Quilters Blog Festival over at in the appliqué category and the wall hanging catagory.  You should hop over and see all the wonderful quilts on display.  Tons of nice prizes too!!

So here is all original design by Me!!  I made this for my daughter to hang on her front door.  My favorite part is the cauldron of eyeballs....the story behind the dress you ask?  When my girls were little the oldest hand sewed the witch dress for her baby sister with stars and moons. (My kids are 10 years apart).   She made the entire dress herself, cutting all the pieces and completing when I was at work.  Makes a mom so proud, so of course a witch dress is not complete without moons and stars.  

Vintage photos, my baby is 19 now, no more trick or treating 😫
FMQ with some pumpkin and vines that I saw on Leah Day's site.
A little raw edge appliqué , fussy cut to get some spooky eyes, and some hand stitching.
Spider in Huntersville NC, luckily I don't see them that big here in Southern , CA.

So go check out the Quilters Blog Festival voting starts on Monday.
