Right Window Left Window     Somehow, I imagine that is what the Lil' Munchkins Peter and Penelope Pumpkin are saying in the Abbey Lane quilt, pictured at the far left (and on your right-hand as you enter the shop).  We have both the pattern and kits (with the pattern included) for this delightful wall hanging. Next to Peter and Penelope are two sets of panels designed by J. Wecker Frisch for Quilting Treasurers, and called "Tidings of Great Joy."  One of the panels features triangular pennants that you could cut out and string up.  The other panel is a collection of Halloween motifs (owl, skeleton, cat, ...), each framed individually. At the far end of this same window is a very quick Halloween project from the September/October issue of Fons & Porter's Quilting Quickly; our kits for this project include the rick-rack and buttons that are used to embellish the border. And, if you look closely, you will see a jack-o-lantern, a shoe filled with fat quarters, and several spiders (playing Halloween games?) on the floor of the window.
     On your left as you enter the Shop is the quilt we call Halloween Night Ride, and pictured at the right. In this variation of Windham Fabrics Flags Forever Wave pattern, we featured Andover‘s Chillingworth Spook Ride panel, and Wilmington Print’s Something Wicked fabrics. The square orange an black quilt to the left of Night Ride is Cheeky Pumpkins, made with Studio-e fabrics of the same name.  On the end wall are two quilts with Quilting Treasurers fabrics featuring Casper the Friendly Ghost; Creepy Cute Wall Hanging is above, and Creepy Cute Table Runner is below. Partially visible at the right on the far wall is the Hampton Bag, made with Halloween fabrics. And on the floor of the window, we have two "Hotdog (or Burrito)" Pillowcases, also made with Halloween fabrics. We still have kits for many of the projects in this window.
    Not visible in the photos is the "Trick or Treat" banner that we made with triangular pieces that spell out the message; it is above the display table in the front of the Shop.
