All Hallows Eve is coming quickly, and this year October 31 will be special. My cousin's daughter's wedding day! Not much time to make a wedding quilt, but since Halloween is her favorite holiday, I decided to make a seasonal table-topper for her.
All Hallows variation a free pattern by Marcia Hohn at Quilterscache.com is perfect! I love it when the traditional name of a block fits the occasion. It just gives a quilt another layer of meaning. I cut out the fabrics last night, and made up one block. Three more blocks done today and I just have borders left to decide upon. Don't you love the way the four blocks make a pinwheel in the center?
I think I'll go up to Dad's house and search through the button box. Hopefully, there will be five black buttons from his mother - the bride's great-grandmother- to put at the centers of the stars and pinwheel. That would make a nice family connection don't you think? I'm so sentimental sometimes!
See what some other quilters have been up to this week at confessions of a fabric addict and crazy mom quilts. Hope I can find you there too.
