    Ok, so I know it isn't techinically a quilt because I didn't actually quilt it, but I did piece it together. I made it as a gift for my friend's upcoming birthday. It's my first big sewing project and I'm ridiculously proud of it.
    I knew that I wanted it to be based on The Nightmare Before Christmas, and I ended up using these two posts as inspiration:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137322.0

And here's what I came up with:

Jack's side-


Sally's side-


And these are two pillowcases I decorated as well (I had to throw Zero in somewhere)-


Sorry this is so long, but thanks for looking!

PS- I got all the stencils from Stencilry.

I love it!  You even managed to find some of the same fabric that I did for the Jack side!  I'm sure your friend will absolutely adore it!
