Double, Double, Quilt And Trouble
When I go home to my mom and dad's in Wisconsin, I try to make time to run up to a sweet quilt shop about 20 miles from them in Plover, called Antoinette's Quilt Shop. Walking into the shop, on the wall behind the cutting table, I noticed the cutest Halloween quilt displayed. Hanging there was a quilt designed by Nora Stransky using fabric from "Costume Maker's Ball" by J. Wecker Frisch for Riley Blake Designs. A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!! I instantly knew I'd be leaving with the pattern and fabric with the recipient already in mind. Aside from her birthday, the second most favorite holiday of my sister, Kelly's, is Halloween. I was SURE she'd be excited to have this for trick-or-treat season!!!
Once I had collected the fabric for the top of the quilt, I wanted to grab fabric for the back, too. While admiring the Costume Maker's Ball quilt, I'd struck up a conversation with a store clerk. She brought out a different Halloween-themed quilt top she had just completed using "Gone Batty" by Lorilynn Simms for Wilmington Prints in a quilt pattern called "Social Climber" by Villa Rosa Designs.
