Happy Halloween!!!

This week, I set a goal to finish my Halloween quilt before Halloween.  I made the quilt last year, but never quilted, this week, Google and I figured out how to free motion quilt on my mom's sewing machine.  I started with a couple of practice pot holders.......

Neither of them are perfect, but they helped me get a feel for how to move the fabric around and create the stippling effect.....So, I decided to go ahead and machine quilt my Halloween quilt...... it took about 3 1/2 hours of to do all of the quilting.  I finished the binding about an hour ago......and it's still the 31st! Goal achieved!  YAY!!!!  Here is the finished product....

I have decided that I LOVE machine quilting.  It really is fun and I can't wait to do more of it!!! Happy, Happy Halloween!
