Once More...

I know I posted pictures of this quilt while I was working on it...but I have to post once more about this. Yesterday I got the quilt back from my amazingly talented long-arm quilter. She is a true artist, and she always finds a way to compensate for any of my flaws in workmanship or design to make my projects extra special! I love the fun variegated thread she used...love the spiderweb she quilted behind the broom...and love the squiggles in the background behind the spider! There are little spiders hanging all around the shoes, and the background behind the hat and stars is quilted with beautiful stars. She even quilted "Happy Halloween" in the sashing in between the spider and frog. I wish my photography could really capture the quilting...
Anyway...yesterday was a good day...and I got the binding all sewn on today...this quilt is now hanging on the wall!
Happy sewing!
