Orange Halloween quilt, giveaway, and yeah it's the weekend soon!

I quilted last evening during the commercials of Project Runway reruns. I did not know the new season started so I watched two of the previous episodes and taped the new one. I did managed to get the area of one and one half blocks done, so I have four and one half left to quilt.

Since I am almost done with the machine quilting it is time to figure out what fabric I am going to use for the binding. I dug thru my stash and auditioned some selections.
A Jay McCarroll fabric - it is actually orange and navy

Black and white polka dot

A light orange tone on tone print - maybe a bit too yellow

A darker orange tone on tone print - this looks pretty good

Clothworks Witchful Thinking spider print - this is pretty cute

Orange stripe - not bad at all

Black and white stripe - the white is too white - the Boo Crew Moda fabric is off white so I don't think this one will work

Any thoughts?

I forgot to put a closing date on the giveaway I posted yesterday. Tuesday at noon EST sounds good to me. I will notify the winner by email to get their name and address.

My goal this weekend it to spend as much time as possible in the studio and get the orange Halloween quilt done. I would like to get the purple and gray Halloween quilt pin basted, but we will see how it goes.

Have a great weekend!

I think I like the spiders, the orange stripe and the black polka dots. Dark orange looks good too. In other words you have a lot of good options!
