Sew Much Fun Halloween Blog Hop!

I LOVE Halloween quilts!  I probably buy more Halloween fabric than Christmas fabric because I just love the oranges and purples and lime greens.  The dancing skeletons and pumpkins and spiders.  I love them!

So...what do I make?

This time I decided to try a quilt based on some fabric inspiration.  I fell in love with this fabric with swirls and designs on the pumpkins.  Originally I was going to applique a design, but then I had another idea.

I made a pumpkin stencil out of freezer paper and then painted it with silver Lumiere fabric paint.

Then I used black thread to add detail to my pumpkin....oh, what fun!

Last, but not least, I decided to add some silver rick rack in the binding.  I love adding rick rack in the binding for a little extra touch!
