I'm so excited that I finished this quilt up in time for Halloween!  I pieced the top of this Ghastlies/Spellbound mash up last October but it got waylaid.  These collections are fabulous together!  Since there are so many fun motifs, I choose a large block to highlight them.  These started as 9 1/2" squares, mainly because I had that sized ruler.  From there I just added the triangles to the corners to turn them into crystal balls.  I have a ton of bonus triangles leftover, I'm hoping to get motivated and turn them into a pillow.

The circular quilting around the corner stones was a bit of a pain but I love the effect... It almost makes you feel like you're being hypnotized if you stare too closely at the quilt.

And did you see this binding???  It's Cloud Silver Netorious, the perfect hint of shimmer!

This is my favorite shot - it's spooktacular, like some ghosts showed up to check out my quilt;-)
