Quilty Halloween Fun

On a recent trip to my local quilt shop, Mes Amis, I spied some fun Halloween fabric.  
I knew some of the fabric needed to come home with me, but it was such a large print, I wasn't sure how I would use it in a quilt.  

And really, who could resist this Halloween kitty?!

Of course my quilt shop pals came to my rescue, recommending a pattern called "Awry" by Mountain Peak Creations.  Not exactly the type of pattern I usually want to try, but perfect for the large prints in this group.

Here are a few of the prints from the same group

Yes, those are skulls on the fabric selvedge!

Not quite a quilt in a day project, but definitely a quilt in a weekend.  I stitched on the outer borders this afternoon in between NFL football games.  At this rate, I might actually have the quilt finished in time for Halloween!


  1. I think you found a great way to show those fun Halloween prints. And look how far ahead you are for the holiday. It's nice to do something simple and easy once in awhile. 🎃🎃🎃

  2. Those are fun H'ween fabrics. I like you quilt, will be interesting to see how you quilt it.

  3. what a fun halloween quilt those are such great prints and the cat is my favorite!
    love those salvage dots too :)

  4. Loved your Halloween quilt. I have been fortunate to have two quilting trips to the States at Halloween time

  5. Oh, that fabric! The quilt! It’s all just too darn cute. I’ve been pinning a lot of ideas recently for panel fabrics (or large prints), and I really like that pattern, especially your take on it!

  6. Oh, and the selvage is to die for!! 😍

  7. Ya, I agree, that Halloween cat is irresistible!
