A UFO finish - Halloween Party

A finish is good - and a UFO finish is even better!


Halloween Party was made last year about this time, but I didn't drop it off to be quilted until this fall.  The blocks are just big Half Square Triangles alternated with a very basic chain block.  And it's very scrappy - but uses fun Halloween prints with a starry (orange, grey, black) background.  This wasn't my original plan for a layout, but decided I liked the dramatic diagonal strips of color.  
 

The chain blocks alternated colored chains and background chains.  The HST used the bigger prints and last year it seemed like everywhere I looked there were fun new Halloween novelty prints.  I got a little carried away, and I'm sure there is enough left for at least another quilt.  Or two.  

Next binding task is another UFO - switching from Halloween to spring with Tulip Time.
