WIP Slash Your Stash Halloween Quilt

Slash Your Stash Halloween Quilt

Here’s another Halloween quilt that’s been on my to-do list forever.  Several years ago, my BFF Brenda made one for her DGD and I fell in love with it.  I already had a stash of Halloween fabrics, but had to buy the book so I could make my own.

Patterns for Quick and Easy Quilts

This was such an easy and fun quilt to put together.  It’s a log-cabin design that uses 3-1/2” inch strips.  I started cutting and piecing on Sunday.  By Sunday evening, I had finished sewing all 36 blocks.  After my 13yo DGD helped me arrange the blocks, she wanted to make sure it was big enough to cover her, so she laid down on the blocks.  It’s much bigger than I originally thought, and it’s perfect for her 5’6” height!

By Tuesday, I finished sewing the rows, and tomorrow I hope to sew on the borders.  DGD hopes I can finish it by Halloween; but, if not, she says she’ll sleep with the top until I can get ‘er done.  I guess I’d better get going!

And, yes, I’m still working on my Happy Halloween Scrappy Stars quilt and am planning to have it finished on Friday.  I’m crossing my fingers on that Friday finish because tomorrow is a no-quilting day.  My BFF Brenda and I are having a girls’ funday, first meeting up for breakfast then spending the day at Disneyland!

  1. Hi Rita,
    You inspire me to get out fabric that I have bundled for a Halloween quilt that I just didn't get to....maybe I'll make an 11th hour effort! Great Job!

  2. Hi Rita! This quilt looks beautiful and the colours are great! I started to make a quilt with bento boxes but it ended very different. It's the 'Paper Dolls', my enter to the Blogger's Quilt Festival. x Teje
