Halloween Haunts Blog Hop (And Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway)

Fall is my favorite time of year.  The colorful foliage, the beautiful weather, and all the fun Halloween decorations.  As I've said before, I don't do scary.  I watched all the horrible Halloween movies when I was young and ended up not sleeping for a week at night afterwards.  So, there are no frightening decorations at our house, every pumpkin and candy corn is happy.

The Ten Year Quilt

I started this quilt in 2005.  It was a mystery quilt through Glad Creations, and I choose the very bright fabric option which was WAY out of my comfort zone at the time.  Every time another clue came I cut and cut all those pieces and very carefully stored them waiting for the next clue.  And then they sat.  A few years ago I pieced the star blocks and then put them away again.  While cleaning my sewing room the other day getting ready for a sewing marathon I found them and decided it was long enough, this quilt needed to be finished.
