A Ghastlie Web

I try not to spend too much time in quilt shops, especially not near the Halloween fabric. Some of it is just way too tempting. Like that skeleton toile I bought last year.  I really do try to use what I've got. When I saw the pattern for Crooners in the September/October 2013 issue of Love of Quilting, I knew I'd want something special for the night sky. 

One of these prints from the new Connecting Threads Halloween collection should work, right? But I had some extra time to kill up in Salem this week and there was a parking space in front of Greenbaums, so I thought I'd check just in case they had the fabric from the magazine. It doesn't show up in this picture, but it's spidery tree limbs with little owls with flowing yellow eyes and it would totally justify a splurge. 

They didn't have that fabric, but they did have a bolt of A Ghastlie Web by Alexander Henry. There was no way I was going home without a yard of that. I've got plans for it.

Oh I love Greenbaums, they generally have a very nice selection of fabric. My husband took his first quilting class from them when he started making quilts with me.
