I LOVE Halloween ~ what a fun holiday with tricks and treats for all to enjoy. In fact, I collect Halloween fabrics and love taking them out periodically and am entertained by all the sweet, whimsical imagery. All Hallows Bash will be included in my growing stacks at home.

Having just finished a “row quilt” sew-along, I thought it right in-step to create a row quilt for All Hallows Bash. It was an opportunity to highlight all my most favorite Halloween images and give them each little personalities. Of course I must share that each character (spiders & cats) represent people I work with here at CT! Yep! Can you pick them out? The other rows contain some of my most favorite Halloween things such as candy corn, taffy and of course pumpkins!  The other rows…..  Flying Geese, HSTs and Checkerboards are just fun to piece and a couple of strips from the focal, Spook Parade was a must!

A perfect challenge for an intermediate quilter, Spooktacular Row Quilt offers a variety of techniques to challenge your skills with Flying Geese x4 no waste method, stitch-n-flip, half square triangles, appliqué and a wee bit of embroidery. If you’re an intermediate piecer the construction of this quilt will hone your skills and if a beginner, it will teach you some new ways of piecing. You can’t loose! Besides, in the end, you will have the most darling lap quilt to celebrate Halloween!

    My mom, sister and I are each making this quilt! It’s been really fun and quick; I love every element and that each row is something totally different.
