I know… I know.. I mentioned the C-word on Tuesday and we aren’t even through Hallowe’en. But don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about THE BEST HOLIDAY EVER!!!!
I’m just not knitting anything Hallowe’en related at the moment. Quilting is another matter though.
You will recall that back in July (when I wasn’t supposed to be spending any money) I bought a bunch of Hallowe’en fabrics. Well Burton and I have the purrfect idea for the coolest Hallowe’en quilt ever. And it was time to get everything cut up for it if we want it to be done before the day comes and goes. (Really, we should have started last month)
Ever the “helpful” companion, Burton was with me every step of the way. So much so that I finally had to give him his own project box, just so I could get work done.
Normally, he’s not this bad, but he really seems to like being on the new cutting table. And I can’t really blame him, it’s so much better than the old one. And in the end, I did get all the pieces cut.
I’m afraid you’re not going to see much of this one until the top is together. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, and seeing it in progress would do just that.
However, I will be able to share my progress on my SECOND Hallowe’en quilt. That’s right… there will be two!
Last year, Mom got me an awesome fat quarter bundle called Kitty Corn. Things were way to hectic to make it then, but I told myself, I’m not letting another Hallowe’en go by without making this quilt!
I’m making another Chandelier quilt, and with everything cut, this one will go together fast! I hope to make some progress on it this weekend. Stay tuned!

Oh my gosh! That kitty fabric with the pumpkins is adorable.
I’m glad to see I’m not the only one with a helper. LOL
You will be rich with two Halloween quilts! Very fun!
I’ve been waiting to see what you were going to do with that material. I’ve had to talk to myself quite sternly about NOT starting a Halloween quilt. I’ve got lots of leftovers from all the projects Dad and I made for Halloween but…..I do need some Halloween placemats and to finish my apron. Those I don’t have.
Delightful Halloween fabrics! Your sewing companion is adorable in his own project bin.
I can’t wait to see these!!! Love the fabrics.
I absolutely adore your Halloween fabrics! Fall and Halloween are my favorite time of the year. This year the weather is cooperating and we are already having cool nights (50s) and low 80s during the day with low humidity. It’s just wonderful. Really looking forward to seeing your completed quilts. One of my cats loves to sit in the middle of my cutting table also. My problem is she continually switches her tail. I usually scoot her over to the side to avoid any chance of injury by a rotary cutter.
Cute fabric! It should work up perfectly!
No wonder Lord Burton is frazzled; two quilts to snoopervize at once!
That is such cute fabric. I do like the candy cane fabric too. I’m so glad that Lord Burton is being so helpful. Of course Halloween would be his favorite holiday.
Looking forward to seeing both of them as tops and then complete.
