Another Finjsh

I have not kept up with my finished projects on my blog.  Somewhere at the bottom is a list of them, and I must update that.  In the meantime, here is my finished small halloween quilt.  Isn't it cute?  It was so fun to make and went together quickly.  Love the pattern especially since I have a 5" template for my accucut system.  So it makes for quick piecing.
I did a fun stipple with a pumpkin thrown in here and there.
This quilt was totally made from my GIGANTIC stash of Halloween fabric!
Perhaps my favorite print in here is the print on the middle right, white Boo Crew Moda fabric designed by the lovely Sweetwater ladies.  There is no line they design that I don't love, but I am a sucker for anything halloween.
Even the back was made with all stash fabric as well as a couple leftover blocks from the top.  I will have to go through the year and count the stash projects I have completed as I would love to list that achievement.
I used Glide thread in a lovely orange in top and bobbin and got a beautiful stitch on my Innova.  I got away from using Glide and have mostly been using Omni. The Glude thread is shiny and not everyone likes that look, also because of how it's made, if I am having a problem at all with fabric, or just those little gremlins that live in my sewing room, it will shred and cause me all kind of headaches.  The thread really performed nicely this time and it made me want to use it more.  I have quite a stash of it, and I am glad I did not get rid of it.
Don't you love how the border looks?  Those cute kitties crawling around the outside following each other!
Oh dear ... Haven't done this in a long time ... Short on my binding.
Not a problem ... I whipped out a piece that was left from the top ... That's why I always save good size scraps ...
See that small black piece on the bott right?  Done!  
Now all I have to do is handsew the binding to the back tonight while I'm watching a movie with my hubby and my sweet son.  Happy finish ... What is on your list?  Please share!!
