Halloween Quilt


With a quilt as you go quilt, you add the batting and quilt the individual pieces before adding the backing. This makes it much easier to put together with a regular sewing machine. I used larger size pieces because I had a charm pack that I wanted to use up. But the directions are basically the same. 

Here are the materials I used:

1 pack Halloween charm squares (approx 42 5" x 5" squares)
2 each fat quarter in white, purple and black
Scraps of fabric for candy corn and bat appliques
Steam A Seam Lite sheets - I used these to iron down my appliques
Batting
1 ½ yards backing fabric
Small piece of white ricrac
2 packages Wright's seam binding

Directions:

Follow the basic directions found at The Seasoned Homemaker website. Just know this quilt will be larger. Also, I used premade seam binding instead of binding with the backing fabric.  I just free handed my Halloween appliques. Here is a picture with the sizes.

This was fun to make and didn't take too long. It is a great quilt to use up some scraps you might have laying around! I've been using it as a lap quilt but it could also be used as a wall hanging instead.

  1. Your quilt is lovely, I've not done anything with the quilt as you go method for years. I must try again. It's easy and quick if I remember rightly.

  6. What a cute quilt! I should try doing it that way. I love crafting, but have yet to complete a quilt project. I don't have experience in quilting, so I usually give up and move on to something else!

  7. Quilting is a craft on my need to try list. I should take a class and meet some new friends. Such a pretty way to use up left over pieces of fabric. What a great keepsake.

  9. This is so adorable, Roseanne! My mom use to quilt bed coverings when I was growing up! And to be quite honest, while the quilts looked pretty, I hated them! I was a skinny kid and they were so heavy on me at night that parts of my body actually ached in the morning from the weight of the quilt. Besides that, they do represent works of art!
