Halloween Quilt 2010

Finally (!!!) the top is finished for my 2010 Halloween quilt.  I ADORE this fabric line called "A Halloween Night" by Minick & Simpson for Moda. Is there anything better than purple and lime green and vintage-y Halloween images with black cats???  Not in my universe that's for sure!!!!!

The pattern is called "Lilypads" from the book Time Out Quilts by Atkinson Designs. A great pattern for fabrics you don't want to cut into bitty pieces.  It's a bed-size quilt and I still need to get the backing pieced and it quilted so I guess I'll be using next year for the month of October. 

A favorite block

Does anyone else need to re-buy Halloween candy already?

Another favorite block

I don't buy halloween candy until the day of. the kids that come get whats available then. Otherwise I would have to buy it several times through the month.

Way to go finishing the Halloween top. As hot as it is, you can use it like that as a coverlet or whatever that's called. It's too hot for quilts anyway! LOL

I love it!! What a great pattern -- really lends itself to some fussy cutting! :-)
We don't get trick or treaters at the door, so we buy some candy and leave it with the concierge downstairs for any little kids that come into the building on Hallowe'en. That way it never comes into our apartment! :-)
