Thea's quilting trials and tribulations.

Life teaches us many lessons! Some of the greatest lessons in my life have been taught to me by my quilts and the people that I have met through my quilting.

Halloween wallhangings

I really liked the wallhangings that Marianne posted in the latest easy quilt magazine and thought what a great gift it would be for my grandchildren - I can send them up with some pieces of candy and maybe a prize or two for C & B to put in the little pockets.  I made the orange one first for Echo - the 2nd one went together a lot easier for Reese... the little pockets are not for the beginner - nor the mitered corners and it was tough getting the fabric to closely match in the corners - it isn't as perfect as I would have liked it to be but I like it...

I put a piece of burgundy minkee on the backs that has stars and moons on it - I will put a hanging sleeve on them and send a dowel up with them so B can hang them for the kids...

I fussy cut out the  cats and the pumpkin creatures.  I had some extra halloween materials from my stash - used some more of it up - some day I will have a small stash again - someday...lol

The Wallhangings were sent to the Grand kids and they love themm - Echo said Tank you Nana!  i felt like i was on cloud nine... love my grand kids!

Great job Thea. I'll be doing this in Christmas fabric, as I said before, as soon as I buy some.

I think they would work really well for Christmas too... thank you for the kind words... I enjoyed making these and know that it will make October fun for the kids.

God bless,

Althea
