I made this quilt in 2000, I think for a specific event but I don't remember what it was now. It was a lot of fun to make and still makes me smile. It was one of those quilts that almost made itself. (Wish they would happen a little more frequently, don't you?)
The sign in the yard says, "Wanted Sweet & Young Trick or Treaters." The sign on the door is a brass charm that reads "Dead End." That's a black cat button to the right of the door.
If you look closely at this detail shot you'll see that the armadillo has been hit by lightning. I lived in Texas for almost 15 years and saw only one live armadillo that whole time. And that was in a state park. I don't know how the species survives!
