Halloween Quilt for my Classroom

I was going through my quilting stash and found this Halloween panel that I must have bought years ago.  It was time to make something from it, so I added some 5″ charm pack squares to the sides and some of my favorite Halloween fabric for the top and bottom borders.  I think it will fit nicely on my classroom door.

Trick or Treat

Trick or treat, trick or treat.  Give me something good to eat!

I’ve managed to stay away from the candy so far–but it’s still early.  Normally I stock up around this time for the Trick or Treaters and end up eating all the candy before the 31st.  Invariably, I end up running out to get some more at the last minute.  This year, I’ll just wait until the last minute buy the candy.  That should save me a few thousand calories!  

ImageMy favorite costume that I remember growing up was a pumpkin costume that my Mom made for my Dad.  He wore it every year–didn’t mind looking ridiculous.  When my boys were little, I found some hand made pumpkin costumes at a craft show.    I found this picture recently of my oldest son, Scott, taken when he was in kindergarten.  Isn’t he a cutie!

I also made a larger jack -o- lantern costume  that my husband wore for years.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture.  Maybe I can get him to put it on again this year so I can document it for posterity.
