I thought I would share some photos of some of my Halloween decorations over the next few days. Although I have made many quilts in fall colors, I have only made two Halloween quilts for myself. Firstly, a quilt from a Thimbleberries book with adorable little jack o'lanterns. I have this quilt laying on the coffee table.
The second quilt came about by accident. I had made the Matilda the Witch quilt I showed you a few days ago. When I cut out the applique cat it was pointing the wrong direction. The pattern did not indicate it was not reversed as needed for applique. I decided to recut the cat but thought it was a shame to throw out the one that was wrong. Instead, I cut out two more in the same direction and made this quilt using my three cats. I was really pleased with how it turned out and its simplicity. These types of quilts are great to show off your quilt stitches.
