Halloween in March

If we can have Christmas in July, there's no reason not to have Halloween in March. This little wall hanging was made by Annette and she trusted me to quilt it up for her. After a few months of nervousness and thinking about how I could wreck it, i loaded it up on the frame, but black thread in the bobbin and got out every shade of brown/cream I had. Trust me, that's a lot of cream.

And here is the "finished" top. I totally wimped out on the borders since i wasn't sure how to fill them. There's some pebbling, echoing, stippling, straight lines, stitch in the ditch, loops, swirls, writing, cobwebs and outlining. A total stretch for me and she loved it!
