Happy Halloween!

No one at my house is trick-or-treating this year!  My youngest wants to stay at home and give out the candy.  I really didn't see that coming!   He is still dressing up as a ghost pirate. We did a little more decorating in the yard this year with the addition of a fog machine and scary music, well maybe music.  My DH is working on setting that up right now.

While my family gets ready for the trick-or-treaters tonight, I just wanted to share one of my favorite seasonal quilts with you.  I will be sad when I have to put it away this week. Although I made it years ago from a Fons and Porter magazine pattern, it is still one of my favorite fun quilts!

My son and I just finished our first quillow!  I found some great truck fabric at my LQS and made some fun pillowcases for him.  Because it was directional, I ended up with lots of leftover fabric.  I decided a strip quilt was the best way to use it up and some red Minkee fabric from my stash for backing made the quillow so soft.

I'm Michele and this is my first post!  I've been following some great quilting blogs for awhile and I've decided to start my own.  Please bear with me as I get started!

I'll get started with a picture of one of my recent quilts.  It is a variation of a Schnibbles pattern that I entered in the recent Schnibbles Times Two Contest.  I combined a few different Charm Packs and I loved the result.

I love doing my own quilting.  Here I added candy canes and hot chocolate to the quilt for that added Christmas spirit!
