month five of five: Vintage Trick or Treat

This marks the last month of our stitch along!!!
Vintage Trick or Treat by Crabapple Hill
The last of the hand embroidery stitching-Whoo Whoo!!
Hoot Owl and Star Eyes!
Everything should now be hand-stitched and machine-pieced.
The stitchery panels get pieced together with the hand-embroidered blocks:
Stitch the "pumpkin baskets" to the sides of the center block.
As we discussed last month,
don't forget to stitch some big, black fly stitching 
on the seam lines between these two blocks
(and the other sides' Scaredy Cat/Squiggle mouth blocks)!
Then add the top and bottom finished pieces:
And now to add some borders!
Don't just stitch some long panels of fabric on each of the four sides...
take the time to do it right.
Measure across the center of the quilt, side to side, 
to get the top and bottom border's cutting measurements.
Sew, press, and
now measure down through the center of the quilt,
top to bottom with those borders included
to get the measurement for the side borders.
Sew, press and
A great job, well done!!!!

Thanks for following along (and joining in)! 
It has been a great project the last five months, hasn't it?
AND almost everyone has a finished top to show for it!
