Started by Garnie P. Bethea in Techniques. Last reply by Lynn Lybolt Nov 1. 78 Replies

By popular demand, the Cross Stitch Halloween quilt reprised.

Posted by Virginia "Ginnie" Leiner on November 1, 2016 at 11:30pm 2 Comments

My quilting friend, Riana Noyes asked me to do a post on the Halloween cross stitch quilt which is #108 in my albums.  The following are  pictures and some explanations/descriptions of how that quilt came to be.

Looking forward to a more…
