Progress on my Halloween Quilt

Ooooooo, I worked on my Halloween quilt and it’s really coming along. Unfortunately I didn’t buy enough of a selection of orange and yellow fabrics to keep going for the zig-zags. I had some older cuts that I could have used but they were from the J-store and I know that they would fade quite a bit the first time they were washed so it was just best to wait before continuing on. When I was figuring out how large I wanted the quilt I really didn’t take into consideration how large of a border I wanted to add. It’s currently 63 inches wide and I’m planning on making it 13 rows long so it will be 63X78 without borders. Oh well…it will be a big one!!!


I decided to give Audrey a try on my regular sewing table. It was a bit cramped BUT now that I realized the issue is the light weight plastic table with the light weight machine I feel much better. She sews SOOOOOO nicely for such a little machine. Audrey LOVES to paper piece. I finished the first block for my valance that will hang in QSE. I need 6 of them total. 5 to go!! I’ll have to pick out which block I want to make next.
