I quilted!

(I think)

Disclaimer: I know nothing about actual quilting. I base my claim that this qualifies as a quilt because:

a) it has a "top" which is pieced,
b) it has quilt batting in the middle,
c) it has a back which is just one piece,
d) I quilted (?) the three layers together,
e) I bound the edge with handmade bias tape.

So.. is this a quilt?

Yes?



No?



Maybe So?

It was part of a gift commissioned by a lady from our church. I also sewed a coverall with matching hat and snow booties.





I hope she likes it!

It's all over but the candy




Cousin Ethan, Uncle Aaron, and Aunt Sarah came over to dig through the pumpkin guts.




Which is good because Mommy doesn't do pumpkin guts.




We baked Halloween Treats.



Rice Krispie Mummies



But we ran out of gauze. So some mummies were naked.



Derek was undead.



William was a mime.



Patrick was....



Something.



Samantha was adorable (not a big departure).



The End.
