As You Witch As You Witch
By: Regina Arlauckas, New York, USA

This was a quilt of firsts – first attempt at kaleidoscope blocks, first free motion quilting, and first yo-yo’s. I wanted to play with fabric I had on hand – and that was Halloween witch fabric (used also in the borders). White sheet on back w/ black yo-yo spiders on webs formed from the FMQ.

Close the Windows at Halloween Close the Windows at Halloween
By: Linda Hicks, Texas, USA

The “Attic Window” block pattern reminded me of the open spaces/big skies of my recent reunion trip to Texas. Thinking the results too garish, I happily found an exotic transparent Halloween fabric. I placed it atop to float and ripple like ghosts coming in the windows…a memento mori!

Halloween Fun! Halloween Fun!
By: Vesuviusmama, Virginia, USA

This was my son Jason’s first quilt, made when he was just 6 years old. He designed and cut the applique, and maneuvered the quilt around under the machine while I pressed the presser foot to sew each piece down and to sew on the binding. He tied the quilt using buttons that he bought online.
