My Favorite Season

Well, it's that time of the year: my FAVORITE time of the year..... HALLOWEEN!  I have been arranging and rearranging my witches.  Perhaps I will share some of my favorites with you in the next couple of weeks.

And here is my latest COMPLETED project: a cute, little Halloween quilt that I started years ago.  Actually, years ago I made one and gave it to my sister.  Then I really wanted one to keep, so I decided to make another one.  Since I had cut SO MANY of the one-and-a-half inch squares from which this is made, I already the the fabric ready to go.  This time, though, I made an improvement in my technique.  I started with the gridded, fusible interfacing, attached the little squares to the interfacing, thus making this version of my quilt so much easier (not to be confused with "easy"), and it hangs so much straighter!  It seemed like a logical choice to bind it with the black and white check, which I found at WalMart, (not my favorite place to shop but Oh! So Convenient when  they have what you need).  Now get this:  the selvage for the plain black and white checkerboard fabric, says "License is required for any use beyond individual consumption".  Really?  You can copyright plain old black and white checks?
