HAPPY HALLOWEEN! And a finish!

Well, a day late anyway. You know how it is. Life gets in the way of blogging, sewing, yada yada yada.;-P
Here are the kids all dressed up last night. Jonathan was Duke from G.I Joe and Bella was Belle from Beauty and the Beast:-)

It's a little hard to see but this one is a spider. I stink at taking pictures. LOL
If anyone has any tips for taking pictures of flames or fireworks and such, please send them my way!

Passing out candy after Trick-or-Treating

The kids had fun, got way too much candy and stayed up way  past thier bedtime;-)

And onto the finish:
My Aunt Sandy is battling cancer. She just had her surgery to remove it and so far everything is looking good. I wanted to make her something to comfort her and of course, I figured that something should be a quilt. I mean, what else can wrap you in comfort like a snuggly quilt that was handmade just for you?!
So here is what I came up with:

It's a friendship braid center made with a Spring Magic by April Cornell Jelly Roll from Moda.

Backing is from Simplicity by 3 sisters for Moda

Closeup of the heart quilting around the border. It's hard to see in this picture.

I quilted this in an allover random loopy pattern and I really like how it turned out. I hope she likes it!

What a gorgeous quilt. Handmaking something with love and intention is so special.

Looks like you all had a wonderful Halloween
