About this Quilt


What do you get when you combine a traditional Dresden Plate pattern, an innovative twist in finishing techniques and fun Halloween fabrics? You get Diane Merritt’s frightful quilt pattern, Spooky. This quilt features traditional Dresden Plate piecing, which is then appliqued on the backing fabric to give it the unique, curved look of a spider web. Machine quilting adds to the eerie look of the design and offers a greater outlet for your creativity.

Diane made this version in a variety of Halloween prints, but if you make it in Christmas reds and greens, you create festive poinsettias adding to the versatility of this pattern.
