Happy Halloween! I am using the "trick or treat time" to update my blog and check in with other quilting bloggers. That's what I call a "treat"! This is one of my favorite Halloween decorations....I usually hang these outside, with burning tea candles to light them up, but tonight it is too windy to put them outside, so they are hanging around inside the house for my enjoyment!
And I have a finished quilt to show you....this is not a trick!
Today I finished the quilting on this plaid 9 patch hourglass quilt. Two weeks ago I asked my blog readers to vote on which layout would be better - click here to see the choices. Most voters selected layout A and since this quilt is for a palliative care fundraiser/auction, I went with the popular vote hoping that it will raise lots of money. I had fun deciding on the border, and decided to use flying geese units to complete the light diamonds around the 9 patch blocks on the edge of the quilt. It was so good to use up all of these old blocks and scraps from previous plaid projects.
