Halloween quilting

I love to make new table runners for the different holidays. That's when I like to shop for the newest fabrics and quick whip up a new piece to update my decorating. There also great gifts, everyone loves a new piece. This little quilted mat I made for my daughter to put her candy bowl on. The outside print is full of bright candy. The pumpkin setting on it was mine in the early 60's. I now use it as a napkin holder.
These are a few I made, setting on my spider web table cloth. The front two are very quick to make.
I also made some cards to send out for the holiday (these are a few). I used my dyed wool fabric, the maple leaf I dyed with madder root, the pumpkin with annatto seeds. I stamp the card stock with a "dot" stamp and then sewed them on with my machine.
This is a table runner I made a couple of years ago, I love the vintage look fabric from Thimbleberries. (It doesn't look to good on my spider web cloth).

Those table toppers are so cool! I especially like the pattern of the last one! (love the webs too)
