It’s Halloween Month! Tomorrow my Halloween posts will begin, but today I have an exciting finish to show you from this past week…my Black & White quilt, Black Tie Affair, is quilted and bound, and off to be judged and hung in our Guild Show this week:
It’s a generous throw, roughly 65 x 80 inches. It’s hard to see in the photos, but it is quilted (by my fabulous friend, Trina) in hot pink thread!
I have had that Dress Form fabric for a few years, and I ADORE it. The pink is Moda’s Petal Power by Maggie & Sharon, another fabric that came from the stash. See that sweet hot pink flange on the binding? Trina taught me how to do that as well (Tutorial coming soon!). Here’s the backing fabric (LOVE that Michael Miller Button Up print!):

This best part of this quilt? It’s for *me*!! (insert happy dance here).
Tomorrow, the Halloween-O-Rama starts here at Threads of Conversation… I’m all set with my snappy new icons:
