Halloween Hooters Applique

Ok, so this is a bit late.  And I could hold on to it until next year but…nah.  While I was in Colorado Springs visiting the grands last August, I came across the CUTEST applique quilt, Halloween Hooters by Whistling Creek Productions.

I did this quilt completely the old fashioned way: tracing by hand, cutting with scissors, and stitching by machine vs. an embroidery machine.  It took f-o-r-e-v-e-r.  I did enjoy the process.

I’m completely not a fan of a blanket stitch but instead, after seeing this on a blog somewhere, dropped the feed dogs, popped on the hopping foot, and stitched very close to the edge of the material.  It went very quickly and I got better as I went.

I found some really cute Halloween fabric for the backing.  I totally don’t care that the stitching can be seen here.  It’s a wall hanging so it won’t be seen anyway.

I think before it goes up next year, I’ll do some spider webs in the black center parts to fill it in a bit.  Overall I’m vey happy with how this turned out.  Too cute and totally fun!
