As Fall Nights Come Earlier . . .

. . . and our cozy bedrooms seem more and more attractive and welcoming . . .

It's time for a tour of my fall/Halloween bedrooms and bath. Let's step into the Wild Child's room.

The Ghastlies also live in here.  I have more Ghastlies fabric that I want to use for this room, but no time to make anything with it so far this year.

A few crows stand guard over the slumbers of whoever sleeps here.

This year, one of my favorite quilts is in the Wild Child's room.  If you haven't read my blog for long, you may not have heard the story before.  I used to be part of an online Thimbleberries group and we had a Halloween block challenge one year.  The blocks were submitted anonymously and voted on with the winner receiving all the blocks.  My block was the one in the second row with the bat against the moon.  My friend Eileen won the blocks with her block of the barn next to mine.  She pieced all blocks and hand quilted the quilt and then gifted it to me for Christmas a year or two later--she knew how much I loved those blocks, and now I have her hand quilting too!  The quilt will always hold a special place in my heart and home.

I don't have much decoration in the master bath, but I have a few things in the guest bath to show.

The shelf you can see running around part of the room at the top of the photos holds rolled towels and other items.  Now step into the master bedroom.

The "polka dot" quilt on the amoire was a thrift shop find a couple years ago when Hubby and I were vacationing in Pismo Beach.  I love it!

This quilt is a Bunny Barn pattern called, I think, If the Hat Fits.  The legs and shoes of the witches dangle free--a really cute design!

And finally the Hallowe'en 1904 quilt designed by Blackbird Designs.  (And that's Spike curled up on top, taking a little nap.)  I added a bit of sashing and extended the piano key border to make it large enough for my king size bed.  (Each time I change the quilt on my bed, I change out the fabric on the fabric covered panels on the wall.)  One of these days, I want to make some pillow cases to match better and maybe a couple of throw pillows.  Again, it's just a matter of finding the time . . . .

Speaking of time, it's time for bed.  Thanks for stopping by for the rest of the tour!

Loved the story of how the quilt in "the wild child"'s room came to be and how you got it. Great memories make a great quilt - besides the fact that it's super cute!

Hey Kim,

I love your Buggy Barn Witches! I received a kit to make that from my sister in April, but have not touched it. Thanks for reminding me .
