Halloween mini quilts

20161016_211530

Some weekend day last year, I tracked down all my Halloween themed fabrics and just started cutting stuff up and sewing it together. I did a bit of fussy cutting to get some of the cutest characters featured. I found some checkerboard stuff to lift the fabrics some and as I was putting it together and loving it, I realised it wasn’t a quilt for me. It was a quilt for my dear, Halloween and Goth stuff loving friend Jack. Once I had it at a decent small lap quilt/large wall hanging sort of size I put it together with a backing of Goosebumps duvet cover from Trash Palace.

Once I’d put that together I figured I should make one for myself as well. Using some of the off cuts from the first one, and some new discounted Halloween fabric from Spotlight I made a smaller, darker and a little less fun one for myself. Don’t get me wrong, I still really like the second one, but it’s not quite as ‘wow!’ to me. It’s more sedate.

At the time of writing this second one is still in the same state – just a quilt top. I had a busy end of year getting baby quilts and Christmas craft done so I haven’t got it put together yet.
