Going Batty

I’ve decided that I would participate in the Fat Quarter Shop’s quilt-along for Bats and Boos. I will admit to being a bit behind though. Life, as always gets in the way. I bought the kit from FQS. It came with the black spiderweb fabric instead of the black bat fabric – I purchased that separately.

I started last weekend and got the bats done.

This weekend I had all intentions of completing the top, but then life happened. I had vasvular surgery last month so I had to have a followup angiogram on Friday. I had a bad reaction to the contrast material and spent Friday night in the ER. Saturday was spent not trying to itch my back because of the hives all over it. I am just happy it happened on a weekend so I didn’t have to work too! The itching finally subsided on Sunday.

Yesterday, I finished the pumpkins. They were a bit tedious, but they turned out ok.

That is all I have for now. I decided last minute to change my borders from the pattern. I had to order a little more fabric, so now I wait.
