Our first October Little Quilt tutorial left off with the completion of these three blocks. Now we will finish up the tutorial completing the Little Quilt. I chose to make the second October Little Quilt from my stash, however, if you want to work from the kit click here! Another option is of course, the pattern download that can be found here! The kit is made from Jenni Calo’s collection, Rest in Pieces. Love that collection!!!
Sew a Block 1 to facing sides of a Block 2. Press. Make two of these rows.
Don’t you just love these smiling Jack-o-lanterns? They’re so cute!!!
Then, sew a Block 2 to facing sides of a Block 3. Press. Make one row.
Sew the rows together placing the last row made in the middle!
Press the center two vertical seams to the middle. I REALLY love the way it’s turning out and especially the design! I can’t wait to get the borders on and they are next!!! So happy I fixed my mistake with the center block. If you are working from the kit you will not have this problem. The fabrics work smashingly well together!
So, we’re finally at the border and four of these are made all the same size.
There are four cornerstones created for the final border.
They are so cute! Love the spidy webs!
The cornerstones are sewn to two of the borders.
Oops, I got so “into” the quilt I finished lickety split! So, two borders without cornerstones are sewn to facing sides, and the borders with cornerstones are sewn to the top and bottom. Then, its layered with a backing and batting, quilted, and bound. Wahoo! Love my Halloween quilt!!!
