Hallowe'en 1904--Done!

As planned, I spent the day decorating for Halloween. I still have the kitchen to do tomorrow, but I've made a great deal of progress. And now that I have my bedroom put together, I can finally show you the completed Hallowe'en 1904 quilt.


And remember the vintage quilt I bought at a thrift store when Hubby and I were on vacation? I wanted to use it somewhere but I didn't want it to get too much wear, so I finally settled on putting it on top of the armoire.


Some of you commented yesterday that it's still too hot where you live to think about decorating for Halloween. Here in Sacramento we're in the 80s and 90s too, but I never let that stop me. If I was going to wait for it to cool down, we'd probably have Thanksgiving before Halloween! So I just figure mid-September--when it's almost officially fall--is a good time to get busy decorating, even if the weather doesn't cooperate.

Time for me to go to bed now and rest my achy body because there's another day of decorating ahead. Good night!

Your Halloween quilt is fantastic, I have the pattern and it's on my list to make someday. The witches on the wall is great. I start decorating now because I want to enjoy it before Christmas takes over.

The Halloween 1904 quilt looks amazing! Love the little witch quilt, too! I admire your decorating energy and as soon as my sewing room re-do is done I plan to follow in your footsteps.

it looks fantastic!
I pulled out all my Halloween decor yesterday - in Michigan the temps are already dropping and since I don't have any fall decor that isn't Halloween, that's what I went with :)

I really liked the pictures of your bedroom. It's so festive. You inspired me to buy the bed quilt pattern. I've made a few Halloween quilts but I keep giving them away.
