A Halloween Mystery Quilt 2018

Posted Friday, September 21st, 2018 in Quilting, mystery quilt | Tags: , , ,

I have made quilts and table runners with holiday themes but I never made a Halloween quilt. When I saw the free Halloween quilt-along at Fort Worth Fabric Studio I decided it was time to make one.  I had to go shopping because I did not have any Halloween fabric in my fabric stash. I found some nice Halloween prints of spider webs, glow in the dark eyes, bats, candy corn, pumpkins, and some nice black and orange pin dots. The background fabric has white ghosts printed on the white fabric. This was all purchased before I won the Halloween basket as shown in my previous post. I am sure there will be another Halloween quilt in the future!

The first clue gave the cutting instructions for the entire quilt. I cut it out and labeled the pieces. I made the blocks as the clues were presented.  The last clue gave the instructions for assembling the blocks into a quilt top. This is a wall hanging size quilt, about 38 inches square.

I am trying to decide how I want to quilt it. My thoughts are to quilt pumpkin vines and leaves but am still pondering the design. Do you have a suggestion? Tell me how you would quilt it in the comments section below.


The instructions for the quilt are available here - 2018 Boo to You Halloween Mystery Quilt.
