Jane's Patriotic and Halloween Quilts

My Aunt Jane made these two small quilts and had me quilt them up for her.  This one is obviously very patriotic and scrappy.  I love it!

I quilted an all-over swirl and star design.  For some reason I had it in my head to make the stars the non-crossing-over way.  Which is a lot trickier to do let me tell ya. I thought they would be more visible this way, especially after echoing them too.
I noticed that sometimes here and there she used the wrong side of the fabric as a light.  That is a good trick Aunt Jane!
And here's her Halloween quilt!  Isn't it adorable?!
Naturally I thought of a feather spine for the borders, so I made it funky.  As for the center I made a swirl with spikes echoed around them. 

In the stars in the corners I quilted spider webs, but I failed to get a picture of it.  Argh!  Ah well,  Aunt Jane loved them both!  She sure has a lot of festive prints in her stash huh?
