Halloween Buggy Barns Completed -- yeah!

I did get my kids Halloween quilts completed before (ON) Halloween. I really love the way they turned out. This one is Justin's. I didn't quilt much in it -- didn't think it needed it.

This one is Jessi's. The witch in the center was fused by Deb several years ago. We took a mystery class from Charlene Richens, a good quilting friend, SEVERAL years ago at Annual Meeting in SLC. I LOVE the witch, but Deb wasn't too excited about her. I think she is perfect in the middle of the quilt.

When Jim came upstairs in the morning I told him, "I left this quilt out for one night and some spider made webs all over it." I had him going for a minute.

This last Halloween project is the one I'm really excited about. It's not quite done -- just needs borders. It is mine to keep. It was a round robin I did in 2005. From the top:

They are darling. I really like the witch in the center. It sets the theme.
