Quick but picture-lengthy post to share this Halloween quilt that I made for my son! We are both obsessed with Halloween so this way, Simon can have Halloween year round. 🙂 I don’t have an official pattern for you, but I do have a summary of what I did if you scroll down.
All fabrics are from Joanne Fabrics! They have so many fun choices and they always seem to be 50% off. You can’t really tell from my photos but some of the prints have a silver sparkle to them. Simon helped me pick them out!
Sewing for my kids is seriously my favorite kind of project! I sewed this quilt in one night (i was up until 3 am!). But Simon’s big smile the next morning made it all worth it. This was one of those projects that I’d never get done if I didn’t just sit down and do it!
I listened to the Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole book series on audio book while making this – it’s a post apocalyptic story-line so it was perfect for this project! lol.
For the back I used fleece to make it extra cozy.
I don’t have an official pattern for you all today, but here’s a quick summary of what i did:
The squares measure 6″x6″ and the strips are 2″ wide. I did a 7×7 formation for the quilt (49 squares total).
– You can cut six 6″x6″ squares from one 1/4 yard. This quilt has a a total of 49 squares, so you would need at least nine 1/4 yard assorted Halloween prints for the squares.
– You will need 1 1/4 yard for the black strips. Just cut them into 2″ x WOF strips, and then trim as needed.
– 1/2 yard for binding
– The quilt measures about 51″ x 51″. (I used fleece which has a 60″ WOF as opposed to the normal 42″, so I only needed 1 1/2 yards fleece for the backing).
Happy Halloween! 🙂
So cute (and easy!!) Your son’s smile says it all. 🙂
Awesome quilt. Lucky little boy!!!
This is adorable but no more so than your happy, proud son!
The only thing cuter than the quilt, is Simon’s smile. The best projects are always the ones we make for our families.
That is a cute quilt and your cute son well deserves it. He has a precious smile!
One very happy little boy ? you are a wonderful mum. Did you use waddind as well as the fleese or only the fleese?
This quilt is cute as can be. I too am obsessed with Halloween. Thank you for sharing this project and instructions. Do you quilt the three layers like an all cotton quilt and is shrinkage a problem? I’ve been thinking about making a fleece backed quilt, they sound so warm.
So adorable (both quilt and little guy)! These are some of the cutest Halloween fabrics I’ve seen.
Oh wow!!! That quilt is incredible!
So cute! I need to make a Halloween quilt for my granddaughter who has informed me it is her favourite holiday! LOL Do you sell the fabrics or just picked up here and there?
I love this! How did you quilt the front and back together?
