Happy Halloween/Blogger's Quilt Festival





The quilt I have chosen for the Blogger's Quilt Festival is my Halloween quilt which I just finished today. It is special to me for many reasons.  I made it with many other women all over the world in a Halloween Block Swap hosted by Jane's Fabrics. It is also the first swap quilt I have finished. I spent last summer making spider webs, and I got all of these incredible blocks back for my efforts.  To me, it shows the power of blogging, and the amount of sharing and friendship that quilters give to one another. As Halloween is not my favourite holiday, this is something I would have never done on my own. I love all of the different material and techniques used to create the blocks. My very talented friend Tammy did the quilting and I love the spider webs that she quilted into each of the 9 patches. This quilt is one that I will always treasure and I thank every one who shared their talents with me.

I like Swap Quilts too. Your halloween quilt is so cute, not scary like the witchy ones.

Wow, what a gorgeous quilt! Quilting is definitely on my list of things to accomplish, but I am truly awful at sewing- I really envy your skills! Really enjoy the blog.
