Witchy Stitchy Blog Hop

I LOVE Halloween quilts!  I think it's because of the colors.  Orange, lime green, black, purple.  Such fun.  When Just Let Me Quilt announced this blog hop I knew just what I wanted to do.  I saw a pumpkin at MQX carved with a quilt block design a while ago.  And the idea was born...


Of course I used my favorite Island Batik fabrics to do my wallhanging.



I wanted blocks that were fairly simple and easy to identify by quilters.  I pieced the blocks and then fused down all the pieces.



For the background I used Lori Kennedy's bat design.  It seemed perfect for this Halloween quilt.



Inside each black quilt block I did some fun filler pattern to flatten the black areas.




All done and sew much fun!


I hope you get to quilt today!
Suzy

  2. Wow, this is a Halloween quilter's dream with those quilt blocks in the pumpkins. It made a beautiful wall hanging! I love how you did the blocks and then appliqued the whole thing down. Since I do lot of applique, this really makes me want to try that. Thank you so much for hopping with us and sharing your Witchy Stitchy project!

  14. Hi Suzy! Love, love, LOVE everything about this. The pumpkins just have a friendly aura and of course, the quilt blocks look wonderful. Your quilting choice just enhances everything and puts a period at the end of the sentence, so to speak. ~smile~ Roseanne
