H - word

Its not too early for the "H" word is it? Halloween is a month and half away so I was getting itchy to make progress on my new seasonal quilt.

This is from made up from a layer cake of Haunted Mansion by Sanae from Moda using a pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.

The quilt was a little busy for me, so I added the black border and corners and I love how it turned out. I think that black makes the colors firm and that they would have tended to wash out a bit otherwise.

I have some cool ideas for the back and I can't wait to get it done, but, that will need to wait a day to two as I need to cut another batch of flags.
Ending with the obligatory tree and sky shot to show that yes, it is still summer in Texas. It was 92 with a heat index of 102 when I was out taking this picture.

Touch of Comfort

I completed this quilt a couple weeks ago, but it seemed to take a week to get pictures and another week to get them loaded.

Sad truth is that my blog is pretty down the list of priorities these days. I find time to look at other here and there, but actually sitting down and getting a post done seems like a formidable task.

This came as a kit with a patterns and all materials except the batting and the binding from Downy Touch of Comfort, Quilts for Kids. It is super sweet Micheal Miller fabrics and I was able to use some of my favorite MM clown stripes for the binding. I have another one in the works from fabrics from my stash. When it is done as well they will both be in the mail.
