What happened to the Green Star Mini Quilt...

I did get to go to my sister's to sew on Friday.  Here she is at her machine and the HUGE extension table her husband made for her.

I brought along the green fabric I scanned for the mini quilt but before I left the house I found some orange and black homespun fabrics.

I have had these for years!  I used them before to make stuffed pumpkins.
So I changed from the green assortment to the orange and black to make a mini star quilt.
Here it is in the works.  The homespun really stretches A LOT!  Especially that smaller orange check...WOW...I sprayed the heck out of it with the Best Press.

I finished it today, in between housework and paperwork for my husband's business.
Really a very primitive look, with simple quilting and I turned the back around to the front to bind it.

Honestly, I can't wait to hang it for Halloween.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
Happy Sewing!

Oh, I love it!! You know I am a Halloween junkie too, so it is perfect for my house too. Maybe I better make one!

I love the homespun fabric!!! I wish we could buy that around here - not many shops carry homespun anymore. Love the quilt!!
