Who can resist Halloween fabric? Not me! It began innocently enough, by collecting Halloween-themed fabric here and there. But every fabric designer has new collections each year, plus it’s a fabulous holiday chock-full of memories to inspire a quilt top. Of course, I am the brown-haired girl. But then, the cowgirl, robot, and mummy are all me, too. Growing up in a small community, holiday events were very important. My mother would collect old dress up clothes that we could put together with a mask for instant costuming. The year I was a mummy, my wrappings came off half way through the evening. I just walked home and changed into Cinderella! There is so much leftover fabric from this quilt I have made two other Halloween quilts, plus there is probably another one just waiting to be made.
