Halloween Quilt and Recap

Alrighty this quilt here is one of my Charming Girls Sept./Oct. goal. So much is going on in our household right now that I just don't have the time to finish my other goals. Now I can explain how I got 4 Halloween projects done when I started with just this one quilt. I started out sketching a 5x5 quilt. I ended up not having enough fabric so I narrowed it down to 4x5. Which I did this lap quilt with.

When I was sewing the snowball block I had enough to make half square triangles. I then trimmed it down and pieced all the half square triangles and the black scraps to make this Paganini quilt. I didn't do the border as the pattern says since my goal this year is to use up fabrics I have at home and not buy more.

The remaining four blocks blocks were left over from the lap quilt since I didn't want to go hunting for more green fabrics. I used three for this tablerunner.

Then with the last block I made this small/mini quilt. It fits on the snack cabinet.  I did have a bit of backing fabric left so I made a bag for my daughter, but I can't decide what to do with it yet so I don't have a picture of it. I am SEW happy I got to use up alot of Halloween fabrics that was sitting in my cabinet forever.
