I am adding this to the Blogger's Quilt Festival at amyscreativeside. This is my third time to play along with this festival. You can see my fall 2009 entry here and my 2008 entry here.
I hope you like the quilt and its story.
In 2005 I was involved with a friends and family round robin. Each of us chose a theme or quilt pattern we wanted which were passed around each month for a person to make a block. I chose a Halloween theme. I never assembled them because I just didn't have enough blocks to do anything.
A year ago I located a Halloween "Spooktacular" round robin online at Jane's fabrics. I was too late to join, but some of the ladies agreed to swap a block with me on the side. I guess you could say that this lovely quilt is a culmination of friends old and new. THANK YOU ALL!
I completed the quilting and binding on this baby 10-15-10.
It sort of all began with a little mystery class at Utah's Annual Quilt Meeting in Provo. Our good friend, Charlene Richens, prepared a mystery for us in our hotel room. This darling witch was the result of that mystery. I have fond memories of much laughter and fun.
