Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween my friends! May the candy fairy bring you many Reese's Cups and no licorice!

Not new but favorites, a couple of Halloween quilts [and Mo!].
***   ***  *** 
This is a vintage quilt, c. 1920-1940. It is signed, has original pencil markings for the hand quilting. I've never seen another like it.

And this is a time span quilt: very prim Devil's Claw blocks, from eBay. The orange and cheddars are hand dyed on various fabrics, some quite coarse, one cotton sateen. I mended them and set them together.

Love the pumpkin quilting my quilter did!

The back is feedsacks.

Witchy label.

Mo likes it!

And here is Mo in many poses as he learns to wear his little lion costume! The parade was rained out but if we get some cute Trick or Treat pics later I will add them. We started with a very big maned costume, that also had furry feet but Mo was terrified of the long hair and hid under the sofa! [Well, his head, his butt no longer fits under there.]

Trick or Treat! 
Frito feet!
Give me something good to eat!

Happy Halloween!
