I finished it.
I cut and pieced, cut and pieced. Randomly, without a plan. It’s dysfunctional, but I think it works.
There are ghastlies, and nevermore prints, there are graphics I created from Spoonflower, there is QUITE A BIT of white negative space.
It most surely takes longer to piece a quilt this way. Most of the time I’m sitting at my machine chain piecing every part I can possibly chain piecing (because that’s the way to get things done, ain’t it?), but not this quilt. This quilt was made painfully, one block at a time. I fussy cut, I measured, I dug out the fabric, then I tried to find scraps of fabric to be able to combine them all.
I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like, but it came out looking nothing like it, except for the fussy cut blocks.
I was constantly rearranging blocks and adding strips of fabric to make everything fit together.
it was fun.
I backed with black and white gingham. Binded with this gorgeous black and white stripe that features metallic gold dots all over it.
It’s a favorite for sure. I think I’ll make one every year for Halloween. Something different each time?
Have you made a Halloween quilt recently, link it below in the comments. I’d LOVE to see yours.
