What a Treat!

No tricks pulled here, only a treat! I received samples this week of the fabric collection I worked on with Northcott called Trick or Treat Street and it is scampering into fabric shops now.


I grew up thinking of Halloween more as an occasion to put together a fun costume than a time to scare people. I always enjoyed “Casper, the Friendly Ghost,” and liked the idea of a Halloween theme that played up the dress-up angle instead of “real” ghosts and spirits. Beyond the innocence of the characters, I really tried to capture that exotic feeling you get as a kid going from house to house on a cool October night--the lighting, the romance, the touch of mystery--without making it too scary.

I am currently working on another collection for Halloween called Costume Club with some new cute little Halloween kids who--if we're lucky--might just wander over to Trick or Treat Street in Northcott-ville.

Here are some samples of the Trick or Treat Street panel and fabrics. I hope you find them a treat to look at!



So, don't forget to take a stroll over to your local quilting shop when the weather cools and the nights are crisp. Knock on their door and ask for this little treat! I think you'll find it a rather sweet collection.

If you want to see the entire Trick or Treat Street collection go to northcott.net and click on Sheri Berry in the designer section.

Sheri!

Wow, this Halloween line of fabrics is great ... and terrifyingly fun.

Way to go!

We're looking forward to getting some soon to whip up some delights before October.

Halloween is very big in our little neighborhood, so we'll spread the word.

All the best.

I am freakishly in love with this halloween line. I have been using it for every sample in my mom's shop.I'm not sure there will be any left to sell.

YAY!
