"Halloween Perspective Wall Hanging" by Donna Pauling

Our youngest daughter and her husband recently moved to New Zealand for her to go to grad school. Halloween is her favorite holiday, but couldn ta'tke any of their decorations with them. I made this wall hanging/table topper quilt for her to help celebrate in her new home. I was able to get it done in time to be able to give it to her when we visited in October, just before Halloween. I used part of a charm pack, other halloween material, and then machine embroidered a spider, adding a web with yarn and my couching foot. It figured prominently at her Halloween party!

Donna, this is a fun quilt :-)  I like the addition of the spider & its web. I'm sure your daughter will display it proudly every Halloween if not all year.

Thank you to everyone for the kind comments. I have always been fascinated by the 3-D look of the attic window pattern and just made this up as I went along. It seemed to evolve naturally because I had the 5 x 5 charms. I had just gotten my embroidery module and the couching foot, so the idea for the spider and the web seemed a great way to try both out.
