Halloween Haunts Blog Hop

What a joy to be back with my blogging buddies for this Halloween blog hop.

A big round of applause to Marian for taking on the chore.
It's been way too long since we have all been together for a good ole
blog hop. I am so excited to see all of you again!
For those who are new...it goes without saying
Welcome!

 My addition to the Halloween Haunts Hop is a quilt called 
Scaredy Bat!


Scaredy???
Not so much.
These little guys just make me laugh.


I don't know about you, but there are days when I feel like I'm hanging upside down,
just like this guy!
LOL!!

I loved that I could use all those wonderful 
Halloween prints that I can't stop collecting.
My "Wisteria" color hand dyes were perfect for the background.
I would never have connected Wisteria with Halloween, 
but strangely enough it worked.
:-)
 This Scaredy Bat pattern is from the Ribbon Candy Quilt Company.
You can see more on him along with all their other designs right
I must disclose that this link comes with a warning...
It's a dangerous place to visit.
Just way too many fun patterns, your going to want!
tee hee!!

It's no secret that I've been a Halloween junkie for a very long time.








Oh yes, the Haunting has begun.
And there isn't anyone happier than me!
:-)

The Fat Quarter Shop is giving away a $25 gift certificate every day.
You won't want to miss out!

Make sure you visit my fellow bloggers...
I know they have some Hauntingly delightful things to share!

May All the "spirits" of the season be with you!

  13. Morning Joan, Love the boarders on your batty quilt. How ever how did I miss those Ghastlie house shoes? Love, love,
    love those, I guess because it's Ghastlie different.
    Enjoy your day while anticipating Halloween.

  58. The bat is really cute, he could be added to non Halloween themed quilts. Amazing how many ideas for Halloween, but I feel really bad now that we just don't celebrate it in our house as we don't have kids & have dogs instead.

  68. I love seeing all your Halloween projects! The mug rug with the Ghastlie lady with a broom inspired me to change my plans for a mouse pad that I'm recovering. I'm using this lady which luckily I have in my Ghastlie scraps. It will be great for my friend with an October birthday!
