Halloween Inside and Out

A couple of weeks ago, I decorated my house for Halloween.  Here are a few photos:

This is my Quilt As You Go Dresden table mat.  My tutorial for the table topper is here.  The tutorial shows how I make my Dresden Plates from charm squares (or 2 1/2" strips).



Here's a photo of the table topper without the centerpiece.



This little quilt is made from my tutorial
1 1/2" half square triangles from charm squares found here.  


I made this tiny tumbler quilt from little 1 1/2" blocks that I won from Kathy at Inspired by Antique Quilts blog.  The tumblers are hand pieced and hand quilted.  I miss Kathy's blog.


This is a little quilt that I made from my tutorial From Squares to an On Point Quilt found here.  This is another great use for charm squares.



I made this quilt from another of my tutorials called Pinwheel Blocks from Charm Squares found here.   The pinwheels also use charm squares.

 

Here's a little better photo.



I won the center redwork pattern from Gay at Sentimental Stitches.  You can purchase it there.



This isn't Halloween, but I have rolled up some of my smaller quilts to display them in this basket.
The one hanging over the basket was from a Humble Quilts quilt along.  The small flying geese quilt was made from my tutorial here.  


I always decorate the outside, too.  There are lights on the bushes that don't really show up in this photo.  The ghosts are made from my Tomato Cage Ghost tutorial here.



We've had a frost already, so my chrysanthemums have seen better days.


The color on this photo is off, but this is my front door decoration.



All of my tutorials can be found on my sidebar.  I hope you will give at least one of them a try.  I love finding different uses for charm squares.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
