My Halloween Quilt

It appears to be that time of year again. Not that the leaves are changing or anything. I am told that we can blame that on global warming too...
I am posting this today, because I am wondering, how many of you have made or plan to make more than one "holiday" quilt?
I purchased halloween prints for the cats 90% of the time, not because I am a fan of halloween, so I don't really have a desire to make another one... As it is, I bought 1/2 yard pieces. This pattern is roughly Yellow Brick Road a pattern by Atkinson Designs that uses fat quarters - I got some non-cat prints from a girlfriend. I gave her most of my scraps in return, including a second top. (That one had a scary print - I am definately not a fan of the scary stuff.)
This quilt is on my couch now for fall decoration. Not that I am a decorator... The more I think about it, no one in my family is a decorator. In all the houses I can think of, you put your stuff "up" & there you go, there was not changing for the seasons or holidays.
Maybe that is why I am not yearning to make another Halloween quilt...
Speaking of buying fabric, I went to a JoAnn's Etc. this weekend & walked out empty handed... (They did not have the batt that I wanted & after looking at the bolts, I was only holding one, so I passed on it.)
