Happy Halloween

Several years ago I made this quilt, I call it the Three Amigos. There are several 3-D elements on the quilt, the picket fence, cat tail and a spider pin in the cobweb in the corner. I love the two pumpkin head trick or treaters.
I have my mantle decorated with angels, moons and stars. I change the garland below with the seasons.

This whimsical quilt was lots of fun to make. I adapted the pieced pattern and made it paper foundation pieced. There are sunflowers, bats, moon and stars along with a vine quilted into the borders.
I have a mix of dried, silk and fresh flowers in this corner. The hand crank sewing machine was a gift from my brother and sister-in-law. Her dad found it for me!
Yesterday at our newsletter stuffing one of the gals brought this wonderful pumpkin flavoured ice cream cake that was decorated with marzipan pumpkins. Yummy!
