HAPPY SCRAPPERS GET READY FOR BOO!

The Happy Scrappers met Saturday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, Jill shows us her new Halloween quilt.  She said she purchased it a while ago as a kit.  We were all wondering if we could still get a kit for this darling quilt.
I’ll show you some close-ups of the blocks.  The thread on this spider and in the web glows in the dark.
The thread on these bats glows too.
Isn’t this little toad the cutest?
The white fabric on these ghosts also glows in the dark.
The quilt wouldn’t be complete without an owl!  What a fantastic quilt!

Tari decorated her bag for Halloween.  Love that spider and web.
Tari also made this unique block.  It is her own creation, so you’ll have to ask her for the instructions.  She is going to use this as a table topper.  I love the way that the entire block makes you think of a web.
This is a close up of the block.
I don’t know who is having  more fun matching squares of fabric, Makayla or Grandma Yvonne.
Judi is way ahead of things as she finished her block for next month’s Sampler.  Looks perfect, too.
Diana worked on this block.  I love how her appliqué looks so perfect.  Speaking of Diana, we had a very special visitor Saturday at the shop.  I’ll show you all the pictures and tell you a little secret about Diana tomorrow.  What fun.

DON’T FORGET: 
Tall Pine Quilters Fall Quilt Show is Friday, October 18, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, October 19, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the All Saints Church Hall, 500 Iroquois Drive, Fremont, MI.  Admission is $4 which covers the two-day event.  Vendors will include the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

I am not one much for Halloween but that Halloween quilt is adorable as is the bag and the block. Well done ladies! Love the star block and the appliques block as well. Again, well done, ladies. Thank you for sharing.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day!
