We Made Halloween Quilts!

 Happy Monday!
My daughter Chelsea decided we needed to learn to make a quilt .. so that is what we did this weekend! We each made a twin size Halloween quilt.. from 4 inch squares. We You tubed a lot of the instructions .. It isn't easy to make one but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be ..Binding was a little hard.. And ..OMG there is a a stack of Christmas squares ready to make a Christmas quilt! How did that happen!
 My other daughter ( the fury one) thinks it is hers! Chelsea did great .. she had never really sewn before other than in Home Ec..But now she has a quilt  that she made!

She is the Queen of this castle :)

 If you would  like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)
