Halloween Quilt Sneak Peak

A work in progress. Yes, I'm working on not one but two Halloween Quilts this year. (This is amazing because I've never even made one before.) One is for someone else. I will explain in future posts. The fabric in this one is called Boo to You! by Riley Blake. (I originally had the wrong name. :) It was late.)
It is Fall/Autumn/Otoño/Oсень/whatever you love to call it :) break from school around here. Kids are home, the weather has been phenomenal so we've been outside as much as we can, visiting our nearby mountain canyon (pictures), mini-golfing, spray-painting furniture (pictures to come), feeling guilty about avoiding the yard work I should be doing -  which leaves not much time for the computer. So a boring post. I'll have more to share next week besides pictures of dying leaves.
Happy weekend.

  2. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt when it is finished! Also love your scenery photos. I just wanted to say thank-you for your binding tutuorial. I used it yesterday for doing the binding on my 3rd quilt. I always battled with how to join up the 2 ends of the binding and your tutorial have now shown me how to do it properly. I LOVE your blog!! :)

  3. Two Halloween quilts...WOW impressive. I was hoping to finish the one I started 3 years ago in time for this Halloween. *sigh*. I have started the quilting--but am bored.

    Fall break???? We have conference half-days...in November.

  7. Really cute quilt, Amy! And I love your leaves - at least they are colorful! I'm surrounded by two acres of trees whose leaves turn dry brown and fall off! I have one little maple tree in the corner that bravely struggles to pop some red into the picture...... ;-)

  14. I love that fabric! BTW -- your husband and daughter were in my ward today. I didn't have a chance to say "hi" or introduce myself as a stalker or anything. I did, however, tell your MIL that I'm a huge fan!

  18. Wow! I've never had the desire to make a Halloween quilt, but yours has totally changed my mind. So totally adorable. Love those bright oranges, but that green spider web block is such a cutie. Anyone would be thrilled to receive that quilt. Good job!
