Island Batiks Pumpkin Fest!

It's October and the Island Batik Ambassadors are celebrating with an event called Pumpkin Fest! We received some gorgeous fall fabrics in our boxes of fabrics and I wouldn't wait to get started. I love making pumpkin quilts. I have quite a number of them.

I knew I wanted to make a pumpkin, but what. So I pondered. My mom and I were having a discussion and I finally decided that a pumpkin dressed in a costume was perfect. I decided on a Batman pumpkin because I found the idea of a pumpkin dressed as Batman amusing.

Here's a close-up of the stitching.

One of my friends suggested quilting a spider web in the background. A great idea for a Halloween quilt. And of course there had to be a spider too!

Don't you just love the fabric in the wings? I've been waiting to use it on a Halloween quilt! So much fun. And I like that there are feathers on "Batpumpkins" mask....makes me smile.

So much fun!  My boys love it and are already arguing about who's wall it's going to go on.

I hope you get to quilt today!
