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.

    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!! 🙂

    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.<br /><br />Fall break???? We have conference half-days…in November.

    Really cute quilt, Amy! And I love your leaves – at least they are colorful! I&#39;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…… 😉

    Ignore the yard, the snow covers it up anyway, right?<br /><br />Totally loving the striped border!

    I love that fabric! BTW — your husband and daughter were in my ward today. I didn&#39;t have a chance to say &quot;hi&quot; or introduce myself as a stalker or anything. I did, however, tell your MIL that I&#39;m a huge fan!

    Wow! I&#39;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!
