Handmade Halloween: The Bat in the Moonlight
I finished my mini with three hours remaining to write this post and catch the party!
The Crafted Applique Bloghop, back in May!
I chose an easy-peasy finishing method:
After quilting with a muslin backing, pulling threads to the back and tying them, I cut a new backing, black, 1" larger than the quilt.
Next, I stitched them (right-sides) together, but only along two opposite edges.
Turned it right side out and pinned the unfinished ends over.
Finally, I top-stitch all the way around.
Perhaps crude, but it sure makes a nice finish for a table mat!
My funky quilting really stands out!

I found the single-block pattern, titled "The Bat in the Moonlight", published in QNM, OCT 98 issue.
