This is the next quilt for our friends’ year of quilts. They love Halloween so I decided to go a bit crazy and piece together a haunted house with a few spooky figures peering out into the night. Around the house is a sky full of bats. The door is open, welcoming visitors to be frightened.

Around the house are 3 borders and l bound it with creepy eyes. It measures 60” x 60”.

On the back is a patchwork of various Halloween prints.

No Place Like Home Challenge

In March while visiting the Ohio Valley Quilters’ Guild in Cincinnati, I was given a challenge. Create a quilted item using a bit of each fabric and at least one embellishment included in the challenge packet. After too many months, I finally knew what I wanted to create – tiny quilts to decorate a home.
wpid-IMG_7105-2014-10-15-19-57.jpg
I cut squares of the text print and brown fabric along with some batting to create the base for a pillowcase style bound quilt with loops of ribbon included. Once all the quilts were turned right side out and stitched closed on the edges, I cut tiny squares of the other two fabrics and a larger bit of muslin that were stitched to the top. I then used blue thread to add a word or two each little quilt. I hand stitched an embellishment to the quilt and threaded a skewer through the ribbon loops and added a bit of check ribbon.

16 tiny quilts were created – each one meeting the challenge requirements. I’ll be sending these to Cincinnati so that the Ohio Valley Quilters can enjoy them.
