Scrappy Strippy Halloween Quilt Done

 This is my son Eli's Halloween quilt for this year.  I cut 2.5 inch strips of various lengths from my Halloween scraps, as well as from other scraps which looked like they'd mix in well.
 I quilted it with all straight lines across the width, about 1/4 inch in from each seam.  I used orange thread.
 The purple eyes fabric in there is one of my favourites.
 This shows the back.  And the binding, which is a solid lime green.
 It's a twin-sized quilt.
I'm linking up with {Sew} Modern Monday and Made by You Monday.
