Finished with one week left to enjoy it before Halloween! As you could probably tell from my last post I decided to quilt this in fat horizontal stripes. I had the idea mainly out of quilting laziness, but then after I saw this quilt I was sold on the idea…and the fact it took about half an hour helped too.
I had no quilt-holder-uppers ( they all hide when they see a quilt+camera in my hand) so I taped the quilt to the dirty garage door. I really like the way the black strips stand out when you skim over the quilt with your eyes.
beautiful! i love it!
I love love love this quilt! What a great idea for a strip quilt.
This turned out really nice!!
So what was the secret to getting the wonky strips to lay flat? I adore the look of this.
This is wicked :) Love the contrast of colors!

It turned out so great with the horizontal quilting! Lines going in either direction hehe I've been looking for some nice black and white fabric and the Joann's backing is pretty nice!
Looks great! I love the orange-y brightness!
She's a beaut! I like the quilting a lot - I just did one the other night in plain diagonal lines. Sometimes simpler is just better, I think.
I love it!
It's a beauty!

Love the Halloween quilt. I made a Halloween quilt a couple of years ago, a simple Magic Nne patch, and I just love getting it out the 1st of October and throwing it on the back of a chair to enjoy all month long. BetttyLou

This is wonderful! Love it.
LOVE IT!! it's so cheery and fun!! Where will you hang it or are you going to wrap yourself up in it;)
This is absolutely gorgeous! It is totally my style! I love the stripes! It's perfect!
Have you ever saw a quilt on a blog and you just couldnt stop going back and looking at it? This quilt did that to me!! I LOVE it! For some reason it reminds me of Halloweens when I was growing up in the 70's! After I saw it I started pulling oranges and blacks from my stash! I havent made a wonky stripe quilt yet, any hints? Thanks for sharing your blog with us!!
I love this. I wanted to do a Halloween quilt and never could pull it together. I did not want all the pumpkins bats and witches stuff. You did a wonderful job. Everything I would have picked if I could have have. LOL
Thanks for sharing another great quilt with us!

Since orange is my favorite color, you know this one is a hit with me. The horizontal quilting lines were so simple but added SO much to the overall effect.
Someday, after our remodeling is done (sigh), I'm going to have a big enough couch (can only fit a love seat in now) so I can leave a seasonal themed quilt out on it all the time. How perfect this one would be for this time of year!
Very cute, very fun! I like the way you chose to quilt it!
Fantastic. Halloween-y and yet not, at the same time.
Absolutely gorgeous - the colours are fantastic!
I love this quilt! How did you get the quilted lines so straight?
The quilt looks great! What a fun project.
nice job mixing prints.. i love halloween... & anything orange!!
i love it!
i love everything you do.
