Spooky!

 My eldest DS, MrZ, has picked this quilt out for me to make for him. He is the son that 'outgrew' the previous quilts I was making for him....hehehe we won't mention here that I had one of those two quilt kits here for a number of years...LOL.
MrZ has also picked out another quilt for me to make; one that I don't really want to make and I told him. He offered to help so I thought he can help with this one first. Last weekend I went through with him how to trace the patterns onto heat'n'bond lite, then press them onto the fabric and cut them out and press them onto the background fabric. Now we have two blocks ready for me to machine blanket stitch in black thread, this is great! I hope the other blocks go just as smoothly; the quilt will be done in no time if they do!

 Now this quilt picture was up the right way but blogger turned it, not sure why and I couldn't turn it back - sorry you will just have to look at it sideways!

Here is a NEW project I am working on. I know, I can hear, I don'd need to start something NEW when I have so many half done projects....but a new project is just always so tempting, and inspiring!
It's gorgeous Luna Notte fabric by 3 Sisters.

Nice to have a helper for your new spooky quilt .... I am in the final stages of the 'outgrown' quilt (I am guessing that is one you were referring to) Love your new fabrics

Oh, if only I'd been quilting when my boys were young, they'd have loved a quilt like this, and I'm sure they'd both have enjoyed helping out. I'm sure his enthusiasm will get it done quite quickly.
