Halloween

Eleanor brought me this sweet Halloween quilt.  The body of the quilt is wool applique.  IF I recall correctly, this was a block of the month type of quilt from Out of Hand. 
 The challenge was that some of the blocks  had their buttons (like the head of the skeleton above, and the roof of the yellow house) and embellishments added already, so I had to go around a few.  Luckily, Eleanor found out before she finished all the blocks that it's best to add such embellishments after the quilt has been longarmed, so she has some details to add yet to several of the blocks.
 This is another quilt that called for custom quilting, but wanted to be budget friendly, so the time and effort all went into the blocks--the border, which has such busy prints anyway received a simple treatment. 
The only quilting detail Eleanor was sure she wanted was spider webs between the top two houses above.  It's hard to see in the photo, but it's there.
