Halloween Morning Stars

Since we never lost power at all yesterday, YEAH!, I started sewing together some Morning Star blocks to make a Halloween quilt for a friend. He was "supposed to" get it last New Years for his birthday. So I figured I get it to him by Halloween this year. All the talk Friday morning about the mystery top Paula did got me thinking how easy it would be to do it and get it quilted by mid Oct. Even a block a day would be easy. But you can't do just one block...so I've been sewing strips together and cutting. DD has been marking my lines on the back of the black squares. Now the yellow is much brighter in real life. Looks kinda washed out with the flash :(



This is the focus fabric. I have no idea where I got it, I do know I've had it for ages.

I love that bat fabric. I used the same stuff to make a reversible tote for a friend- one side happy chickens, one side bats and lightning!
