Amy'sCreativeSide





I finished this ufo just this weekend, and just in time for Halloween.
A couple of years ago Nanette www.fredashive.blogspot.com shared her pattern for the cottages and I knew when I saw it that I had to do it with Halloween fabrics. I put it aside because I was scared to quilt it. I've had a couple of years of practice in free motion quilting and I was determined not to let another Halloween go by with it unfinished. . It was so much fun to make, I really need to do a Christmas one.


My quilt holder feels the need to sneak into my pictures, especially when wearing new shoes.

I remember that pattern. I did a block exchange with those blocks but still have not put the blocks together. I am bad.
