A Halloween Treat for you!

Almost all things are ready for the retreat that my daughter, Collette, and I will be hosting this weekend. While we are away, here's a little Halloween quilt that you can make. It's quick and easy and makes a great gift for you or a friend. I designed the little quilt back in 1999 and taught it through community ed more than once. I'm taking along the left-overs from my classes and am going to make a couple as gifts only I am going to use woolfelt for the applique pieces this time. So here's what the quilt looks like when it's finished (it's 13" square)............

If you right click on the instructions and pattern page and save to your computer, you can print out the pages for your own use. If you have any problems with this please e-mail me or leave a comment with your contact info and I will e-mail you a pdf file (blogger won't load pdf's and I don't have a website yet where I can post them). You may share this pattern with friends because that's how this pattern first came to be........I wanted to share a little something with my friends. Please do not print and sell the pattern. If you wish to make this little quilt for bazaars, festivals, etc. please do and just give a little credit to where the design originated. :-)




One last thing............I mentioned in an earlier post that I would prepare one extra goodie basket like those that each of our retreat guests will be receiving. So, right now, begin leaving comments for your chance to win the little basket of goodies. I'll draw a winner on Sunday evening after I return and will announce the winner Monday morning. Be sure to leave an e-mail address or blog link so that I may contact you. If I cannot reach you, I'll have to draw another name. No questions to answer or comments to share but if want to say lovely things, they are always welcome. I read every comment and love every one of them. So until Sunday evening..........Hope you all have a great weekend. We will, I am sure, as we stitch and eat and laugh and sew and eat and share and on it goes!!!!

Sandi - thank you for being so generous to share this sweet pattern with us! I hope to make this one in a not too far future...perhaps next year - I put in in my halloween folder! I love pumpkins...and the other spooky "residents" of the quilt are just adorably cute.

What a wonderful little quilt. My grandkids would love it but I would love it more!!

Spanish Princess said...

OMG! That is so cute! I'm definitely going to make this. My mom is at market this week (Houston International Quilt Festival) so maybe I'll get to raid her fabric stash later (or I'm sure my step-father would turn a blind eye so I can scavenge!) I'll definitely post when I get it done ... even if it is after Halloween!

Hi Sandi, Ihope you and your daughter had a wonderful quilting weekend with your friends. Thank you for gernerously sharing your Halloween Pattern. With only 5 days until Halloween I'm going to try to make the wall hanging, I may even get it quilted, as I find that fusible web applique is quite fast,it'll be nice to get out those orange and black scraps.
