Finish It Up Friday :: Really Late or Pleasantly Early?


Sooooo I may or may not have started this for last Halloween...but at this point I figure rather than saying how long it took me and how late it was, I'm just going to go with "YAY! Early finish for this year!" Way more positive, right?


St. Louis 16 patch with loads of Halloween goodness going on. I will admit though that the combinations of warm browns and stark black and whites  never completely came together for me. I loved all the components but I loved them a little less all together. Plus the cat print from Spooktacular turned out to just be too large a scale to work cut up at this size. I'm not the only one who spends the time working on finishing and simultaneously thinking about what you'd do differently the next time, right? And then bam, another quilt top has been born in my head, so don't be surprised if a new and improved Halloween quilt shows up here.


But back to this baby: I quilted across from side to side (you guys must know by now how I love my straight line quilting) and it pleased me. It just seemed really quilty and good.


Fun orange and white chevron flannel on the back that I found at JoAnn's. Again, backing *everything* with flannel from now on. I know it's the South and it's almost 100 degrees in the shade all summer but personally I'm dreaming of cooler weather. Thanks for stopping by!
