“I saw this quilt in Seely Lake, MT. They had done it for a ‘row of the month’. The instructor was showing the quilt at the shop – and she had done it in Halloween fabrics. She is as Halloween crazy as I am and it turned into a lasting friendship! This took me over a year to piece. I fussy cut in faces, bats, cats, spiders, … It basically turned into a big “I Spy” quilt! Barb did an awesome job on the quilting.”
