I may possibly have mentioned that I love Halloween. Just a little.
Now, its October and the countdown is on. I took my Halloween quilts out of the closet and have to figure out where to hand them this year.
This is the first Halloween quilt I ever made, back in 1998. I used the old bug jar pattern with Spooky fabrics and because I was pretty pissed off about the Clinton impeachment hearings, I took a picture from Time magazine of Ken Starr looking like he'd sucked a lemon and made it into "Starr in a Jar " (next to last block, top row). I took various pictures of Newt Gingrich and made and "Eyes of Newt" jar as well (second block, second row). Finally, I added a quilter in the last jar of the bottom row. I used a wood-textured black tone on tone and call the quilt "Dracula's Pantry" and if you enlarge the picture you can see the "D" I quilted at the top.
Now, to go finish machine quilting some sweet, pink, baby girl quilts!
