Scary Buddies

I hope you can open this image...ugh, I don't know why this new glitch. I am not "mucking" with it. Was it Tracy who said I had to just paste and leave it alone? I think so. If it was you T, I swear, I'm not mucking with it! LOL!

This was my first time using metallic fabrics. Being into Primitives I can think of a hundred reasons why NOT to use metallics but this quilt has just little bits of background peeking out and I thought that with the stars in the borders and all the button stars this would be a great way to make the little background that we do see, POP! The fabric I used in the border is from Meme's Quilts, I just love that print.

The ghosts are wool felt, the bats are flannel, along with the tie dye bow ties. The buttons are all handmade, polymer clay buttons from Just Another Button Company. They are sooo cute. They are not cheap but they are worth every penny. Honestly, they look like candy when you see them...and they are sooo tiny. The first time I saw them I though, "How'd they do that?" Amazing!

I don't have any patterns left but I have a kit available. Only one though, it has the same exact "everything" as mine.

The one pictured is the one I made and it has left the Pumpkin Patch to live out its retirement in an Investment Office cubicle, in TX... where it can be a gentle reminder to the cubicle occupant to hurry home because the Trick or Treaters are coming! =) Well, someone has to hand out the candy...did you really think the honor system would work with a bowl full of chocolate? Hello?!

These are really cute ghosts. Love the design, colors & fabric. Glad to know you have kits available. While I'd truly love to have a Halloween Quilt, I have too many projects in the UFO que, but I will be sharing your Halloween Quilt info with friends. It is truly sew very cute.

Thanks for sharing. I love it.

Goof. Everything's fine with the picture. It's lined up the way it should be and it clicks-to-big. :-)

Love the little ghosties - makes me want to start pulling out my autumn stuff! Soon as it gets below 76 degrees, I'll do that.

No, really, I will.
