Halloween Quilt

So, for the past 2 years, I have been quietly and slowly collecting Halloween fabrics...just ones that i LOVE that would go perfect in a Halloween Quilt. Took me long enough. Then, I finally got it all pieced together and ready to send to my mom (she lives in Alaska), but then my Granni told me she was buying a long-arm quilting machine...so I saved it (she lives just 10 minutes away)!
So, I finally took it over to be quilted at my Granni's house, and realized that I had used my back for something else, so we had to quickly sew up a back and put it on the quilting machine....
So, FINALLY, my Halloween Quilt was my first ever quilt that I quilted myself on a long-arm machine! And I must say, I am HOOKED... :)

What fun! I talked with a long-arm quilter in the area who bought the machine for her personal quilting... and within a year had done enough quilting for friends to more than pay for the machine. (and those buggers are expensive!) She is retired now and makes an impressive part-time income quilting :o)

Love your Halloween quilt. I've been collecting Halloween fabrics for awhile too just waiting for the right pattern to catch my eye.
