Feeling Festive

 The other day I decided it was time to use up some scraps.  Sometimes I like to do a project just for fun ~ not for Gigi's Thimble, not for work, not one thats been hanging over my head for sometime.  Just a good old spur of the moment-kind-of-project.  I decided I needed something for Halloween.

My kids designed these two blocks on the bottom:



The only fabric I had to buy [for the whole thing; back included] was the orange and black polka dot for the border and an orange plaid for the binding.  Oh, and I splurged on some black pom poms that will be sewn into the binding.


This one is going to the quilter SOON.
