Oh, my, gosh, do I love Halloween! Connecting Threads carries the best quilt pattern I’ve seen in years for our zany Halloween season. I absolutely love Sew Spooky from The Quilt Company! Very cleverly designed, this block of the month pattern pack is hilariously whimsical. Six patterns in all will make the comical 73″ x 61″ quilt.
Four blocks are haunted buildings, but not just any haunted buildings. No-sir-ee! One is designed like a rectangle pumpkin with windows for eyes and the chimney as a stem. Another is a witch! The top of the house looks like a witch’s hat with her spindly legs and curly-cue feet hanging from the bottom of the front door. It’s sitting on a broom! Hey, there’s even a little quilt hanging off the side of one of the houses! I love it! And, there’s even a spooky school for ghosts in training! Wahoo! How can anyone pass this up?!
If you think that’s great, you need to know about the wacky Accessory Fabric Packet The Quilt Company has created that goes along with the hair-brained Sew Spooky. The packet contains two macabre signs, the darling pumpkin quilt, a couple of ghostly students and a devilish chicken (cackle!), and more! What fun is in store for those building this quilt!
The best news is this… Connecting Threads is coming out with Halloween fabric, All Hallows Bash, very soon and there are some PERFECT fabric choices for this pattern! Keep your eye out ~ it’s awesome!
