This Halloween quilt is the top only.  next one to go on the frame.  This is a Vicki/Lorene collaboration.  Can't remember where we go the idea.  I know there is no pattern.  the house is from a Patrick Lose table runner book. All I needed to do was machine applique the ghosts and the house.  That's it.  now ready to quilt. 

The shepherd needed the binding and the eyes on the shepherd and sheep.  And yes, the kitties - Miss Priss and Diesel.  I couldn't keep them off.  

Next is the 2nd Winter Wonderland.  That is Miss Priss again.  I think she fell in love with the minkee back!  Have you used Minkee on the back of your quilt?  Oh my, I will so do this again!  I love the way it feels.  It is much heavier than normal.  it does have batting in it too.  It is sooooo warm.  it will feel so nice this winter.  but right now?  in 110 degrees?  hmmmmm, no.  However, we were traveling with the air conditioner turned way down, and it did feel good.

This is the front. 

So, I busted 12 1/2 yards.  not too bad.  I am now in the 100 yard busted club now.  And that makes me a happy girl!
