Spooktacular Quilt finish


I received these blocks from a swap back in 2009. I put it together in October of 2009 and that was as far as I got.  This was before I knew how to sew sashing on evenly. I also didn't measure each block trusting that each swapper made their blocks 12.5". I know better now of course. No matter, it's for my bed and I love it!


I pieced the backing. I bought the green bats back in 2009 specifically for this quilt. I meandered quilted it with bright green thread and used a fun orange binding that I had left from some other projects. Of course it wasn't long enough so I added some dark blue left over binding to make it long enough. It's been on my bed for a couple days now and I am very happy with it. This is the first handmade quilt I have ever used. All my quilts have either been sold or given away. Finally one for me. So much different than those store bought ones.

This is my 4th finish.  Robin @  RsIslandCrafts .
