A Halloween table mat

A quick post tonight to show you the table mat I quilted tonight to say "thank you" to the teacher whose room we borrowed for Trick or Treat Street.  This was fun to make and I will definitely make another before Saturday! 

Very easy to make using a 17 x 17 square for the background, folded in half and half again.  Cut an arc and thus form your background.  Make eyes, nose and mouth to suit and machine applique onto background.  Machine quilt and sew a bias binding--super simple.  Originally, this came from a Party with Patrick monthly class that I attend at Yankee Quilter--great fun.  I changed the pumpkin face from the original to suit me.

Until tomorrow, Happy Quilting!

  4. This is super cute! I have some blocks from a halloween project I was going to save for a project for next year, so maybe I can put one of these together to add to it! Next year when I get ready for a halloween project I will have one 1/2 done :)
