One of the goals I set for myself this year is to make and finish quilts for my children and - as I figure it out - their significant others.
It just so happens that this occurred to me as the first birthday in the year rolled past.... so he will have to wait :-) But his fiancee had the next birthday so I put my thinking cap on! She loves Halloween so I decided a quick jelly roll race design with as many weird fabrics as I could find would fit the bill.
I found a couple of jelly rolls in black / white / lime / purple & orange [NOT Halloween per se] and went shopping for a yard each of anything I could find. I pulled from my stash too - but managed to come up with a large assortment of sparkles and glow in the dark and skeletons and ghosts..... everything you need for a kooky crazy SPOOKY quilt.
And found a lovely deep purple for the backing...
For a 2016 start AND finish.... it made me smile!
