|Halloween Mix-Tape, the front.|
|A quilting close-up.|
|The highly pieced back.|
At any rate, I used a free motion stipple pattern which I am claiming looks like spooky ectoplasm over the top of the quilt. (I really don't think it is Christmas unless someone brings up ectoplasm.) I used up all my scrap Halloween fabric for the back and then had to convince the woman at the LQS that it was indeed the back. I thought it was funny (irritating) that the woman who helped me on attempt one really didn't like that I pieced the back. She was fussing about how now I had to have it perfectly centered and that would be so much more work. I told her my intention was not to have it perfectly centered and it was carefully measured so as not cut off the top or bottom of the pieced rows after it was quilted. Her response was basically, "well, I know you don't mind that it isn't centered." Sigh, the first encounter with the quilt police is always the hardest.
