Yes, you’re seeing double!!  When I have multiple things to quilt, that are small and the same size, I like to have one quilt back. The first of the 3, I quilted for Sherry, is quilted at the top of the quilt backing, with a scrap piece of batting...so it wasn’t easy to get a picture.  I quilted all three the extact same.  Quilting the crackle in the background is easy and I love how it makes all the appliqué stand out.  I quilted ribbon candy in the top border.  Lines in the big pumpkin and moon, using Edge rulers from Linda at thequiltedpineapple.com (her rulers have been my favorite for years!!!).  Swirls and curly cues in the smaller pumpkin, give it just a little texture and personality!

I used my favorite 8020 Winline cotton poly blend batting, and white 30 tex Perma Core A&E thread.

I quilted spiderwebs 🕸 in the blocks along the bottom, also used Linda’s Edge rulers to do those lines.
