For years I have been collecting Halloween fabric. It is my favorite holiday and when I see cute fabric, well, I just can’t resist. The problem when you are
hoarding fabric, ahem, creating a collection, is how do you choose a pattern and cut into that stash? I mean, how do you know a pattern is worthy of using that coveted fabric? For me, this is my biggest problem. The fabric stash gets bigger and I am afraid to cut into it for fear of finding a better quilt pattern later.
As a Halloween aficionado, it seemed appropriate that the first issue that I worked on after joining Quilty was the September/October 2018 issue. All I can say is I have added several quilts to my “must make” bucket list after working on this issue. Here are a few of my favorites:
Sisters Of the Dark is a quilt pattern using De La Luna by Tula Pink for FreeSpirit. What I love about this design is that it utilizes the signature print in this collection. (*Look for a blog post from me in a few weeks about how to buy, plan for, and fussy cut Tula’s iconic designs.)
This quilt right here just jumped to the top of my “to make” pile! What a perfect way to use up my stacks and stacks of holiday fat quarters. Each “goose” (is that a thing?) is large, so this will stitch up in no time!
If Halloween isn’t your thing, how about making this gorgeous teal and white quilt? It is such an interesting twist on a classic quilt design and combines appliqué and piecing.
Perhaps now you can see why I have added several quilts to my quilting bucket list. I just can’t resist these gorgeous quilts and I count my blessings that I get to work while surrounded by these beauties.
