The Vintage Spool

Good evening everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend!  As you know, I loaded my Halloween quilt and was going to try and get it "kwilted" this weekend.  Unfortunately, after waking up to a flooded kitchen Saturday morning and Super Bowl Sunday, I ended up not getting much done.  I had a hard time quilting on Friday because I could hardly see what I was doing.  Bright lights on, bright lights off, black thread on black fabric, neutral thread on patterned fabric, etc.  But today when I got home the sun was coming in at just the right angle putting a spotlight on my quilt.  I gasped and quickly grabbed my camera to get these shots.  Isn't it looking cool?  I'm almost done - about an hour or so left and I'll have it off the frame.  WooHoo.  This pattern is by The Vintage Spool (  Verna makes labor intensive applique quilts.  This one really burned me out, but I am going to love looking at it in October.  It was all worth it.  This entire quilt is free motion which is hard for me -but I'm getting there.  I love the spider web on the tombstone.  What do you think?

On another note, I did manage to sew up a cute Fig Tree pattern this weekend.  I still have to do the embroidery but so far it is turning out really sweet.  I love applique!  Take care and have a great evening!
