Halloween At Mom's House

I stopped by my Mom's house on Sunday to deliver a quilt I just finished for her. This is a picture of my Mom on her front step holding BQ#1.

This quilt was inspired by a quilt I saw at the Lynden Fair in August 2006. If you take a look at my post from August 16, 2006, you will see the quilt that inspired me to search for the pattern for this quilt.

On September 18, 2006 I finished BQ#1 to the flimsy stage. I mentioned in my post on that date that I cut out two of these quilts at the same time--one to be finished for my mother and the other to be finished for myself.

If you look back to my post of October 6, 2007, you will see my quilt, BQ#2. It only took listing these quilts on my side bar and making them part of my finished quilt goals for 2007 to get them finished--a year and half later! I wanted them finished for Halloween, I didn't say which Halloween! LOL

My Mom took pictures of all her fall/Halloween quilts on Sunday and e-mailed them to her friends with the following message:

The" Quilt Lady" (Norma) came by today with a new quilt for me. (the one
on the dinning room table) The other ones she made me last year. I am real proud of my Halloween / Fall assortment.

These pictures are included here as well for your viewing pleasure.

And finally, a picture of Jack smiling at you.


  1. She looks so happy! Her quilts are awesome....you're so sweet. :)

  2. Your Mom is very lucky to have you. She has some beautiful quilts and decorations.

  3. What a nice smile you put on your mother's face! The quilt is great as are all of the decorations. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love that table topper, as well as all the quilts. I am glad you have your mom to spoil a little!!


  5. What a charming display! I know your mom is just as proud of you as she is the seasonal items to put out. I don't think you could have a bigger booster for your efforts, Norma.

  6. It appears Jack is chuckling about something :) Looking very festive at your house, Norma. You are in the fall/holiday spirit. Wonderful!
