Halloween is in the mail

 I got it finished, and since this picture was taken it has been washed, dried and popped into an envelope. I'll head to the post office in a bit. Looks like I have a good chance of getting this to Japan before Halloween.

The pattern for this is my own invention, based on the block Autumn Tints. I used fabric from Minick & Simpson's Halloween Night by Moda. The quilting is straight lines on the diagonal in both directions except in the center where I quilted straight lines about an inch or so from the outer edge. I didn't want any seams or stitching in the very center so that whatever is set there wouldn't wobble.

It must be very satisfying to have this sweet little project complete. Love the pumpkin border fabric. Now back to the aboriginal blocks. I can't wait to see what happens there.
I've just realized I must be sending emails to myself! Just getting the hang of this whole business...
