Trick or Treat

While I was at the Quilt Expo (in June, in Washington, DC)
I picked up this fantastic Trick or Treat (by Deb Strain
for Moda ) jelly roll.

Halloween is my favorite holiday
and I have been dying to make a quilt for it.
Its going to be somewhere between lap size and twin size.
And I might have enough to get either a wall hanging or table runner out of it.

I also have a couple of matching panels that just need layered and quilted.
I ran out this morning and bought a black swirl and purple sparkle fabric to use as backgrounds and borders.
They are washed and ironed and the black is partially cut.
Tomorrow, the rest of the cutting and hopefully I'll start the piecing.
This should be #8 of my 11 in '11.
Its almost August and the time to think ahead to the holidays is here :)

Very nice! I don't have any Halloween quilts. I have one cute Halloween panel that I would like to quilt up and hang on the wall. I've had it for 3 years. Maybe it's about time I get it done?!

I was just thinking about doing a Halloween tablerunner. This fabric looks really nice, I've got to have look around for it!
