I’ve been working on my Halloween quilts (this is one I started two Summers ago!) a bit this month. I wanted to finish both of them before the end of July, and now I’m pushing it a bit by saying before the end of August ;) The days just get away from me in the Summer with so many activities going on. In any case I am hoping they are both finished before Halloween this year, that is at least a goal that seems quite manageable.
This quilt is a big hodgepodge, no set pattern and I’m adding sections of gray fabric wherever I need. I don’t mind the randomness of it, and since technically speaking it was one of the first quilt I ever started, I’m okay with any weirdness.
I’ve been slowing working on my sawtooth star quilt. A block here and there when I can. My favorite to make are the tiny 3 inch blocks (skull and strawberry above are both 3″) You can download a free 3″ paper piecing here
to work on a sawtooth quilt of your own.
Back in February I decided to start an economy block quilt to use up fabric from my stash. I am pleased to say it only took me until the end of March to finish, quilt and bind it and I’ve been using it as a 60×60 inch lap quilt ever since. I started a new quilt shortly after using sawtooth stars, but I’m still working on that one on and off. There is something so satisfying though about using up small amounts of stash fabric to create a colorful quilt.
