Really. I really really really really LOVE this quilt. I haven't had so much fun making a quilt in years. It took the fun level up to previously unexplored levels. If you have had an idea that you might want to make this quilt, just go for it. You will love it too. Just make sure you make all your half square triangles the right size so you don't have to do them twice. Just saying.
As you see, I got the blocks all sewn together. This quilt is E.N.O.R.M.O.U.S. Actually, it may be too large to live in a house. Maybe a circus tent or a humongous office building with 50 foot ceilings?
You may notice that my quilt is missing its piano key border. Yes, well, I did my best. Grandpa fell over the weekend, and I have been checking in on him two or three times a day, and then I had my student over for a sewing lesson, and I just didn't finish that border. Grandpa is ok, and my student is terrific, but there are just so many hours in the day, and I decided I was done at this point yesterday.
Now, my friend Thelma at Cupcakes 'n' Daisies had no such issues with last minute deadlines. Her Halloween 1904 quilt has been done for a week or more. No waiting about for the eleventh hour for that girl. Go check out her post today to see her version. With borders. Thanks Thelma for the experience of sewing along with you. Always a treat!
As several of my dear readers have pointed out, I now have a heck of a good start on a quilt for NEXT Halloween.
This little sweetie is all pieced and ready to be quilted. I considered briefly staying up through the wee hours and finishing it, but I just ran out of steam. Another one for next year, for sure. Don't you love that lime green? This is Darcy by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
Tonight is the big night around here. Grandpa and I have a full day, with doctor appointments, a lunch date, and an afternoon of soup making and then our evening of passing out candy. I will be so wiped out by the time Thursday gets here that chasing after Eva will seem like a rest on the chaise lounge. Happy Halloween everyone!
