The Halloween Quilt is finished

I finished my Halloween quilt.

When it isn't living at the shop, it will be on my lap with the cats at home.

I used each of the fabrics from Cotton+Steel's Lil' Monsters collaboration collection. I added a few spider webs from Moda's Eerily Elegant collection to round it out. The eyeball bias tape was a suggestion from our quilting instructor Annie Chen. 

The pattern I followed was from FilmInTheFridge (which is a great name by the way). It was her Sleeping Porch 2x4 quilt, with not a lot of attention paid to size. My Finished quilt ended up being 39" x 64". An odd size, but great for a couch back and lap with kittens. 

I'm looking forward to Halloween!

It's never to early for Halloween

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Coming up with a costume idea, making it, and seeing everyone's creations is so much fun. This year I have the opportunity to make a fun halloween quilt out of the cool fabrics that have come in. 

 Moda's Eerily Elegant collection has a lot of spidery goodness

 Cotton+Steel's Lil'Monsters collection has some of the cutest cat and some spooky party goers.

With Moda's Eerily Elegant line and Cotton+Steels Lil'Monsters line I think I can come up with something fun. Simple and small, but fun. 

What are you going to make with halloween fabrics?
