A Ring of Coffins Mini Quilt

So excited to have finished these really fun and adorable mini quilts featuring Ghastlies and Jack Skellington fabrics.

IMG_1721IMG_1701I used the awesome “A Ring of Coffins” paper piecing pattern by MiniASD on Etsy and added the faces from a template that I created.

After hand stitching the coffins together I hand stitched the faces using an invisible stitch. I thought about machine appliquéing them to the coffins, but I enjoy watching tv and hand stitching a lot of my crafty things.

I love these modern Halloween colors by Cotton and Steel, and I added some jewel tones from Allison Glass

I appliquéd bats and a floral motif in the corners and center from a piece of Angela’s Attic and machine quilted around the coffins. Added a spider charm and pockets in the back for hanging, then finished the two minis with hand stitched black binding.

Halloween Party 2016

I love this time of year when I get to be super creative and decorate. We had a family party this year with special effects, lighting and of course fun food stuff. My favorite part of the party were the voodoo lights over the dining room table and the beautiful table setting that i finally finished collecting. The best part of decorating was reusing old decorations and finding new ways to display them. Enjoy the photos.

Voodoo lights over the dining room table, 3 views. The lighting really transformed the entire evening.
