Spooky Mini Quilt

spooky mini quilt tutorialI love Spooky Sewing!  Halloween is such a fun time of year and the fabrics are so amazing!  This mini quilt pattern is inspired from a larger pattern I created.   You can find the pattern for the large version on the Riley Blake Designs website.  The fabrics are from last years and this years Riley Blake Designs Halloween fabrics.  They are purrrrfect for Halloween!Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 2.46.16 PMSupplies:

scraps of Halloween prints

fat quarter or equivalent for applique

2/3 yard for backing

1/4 yard for binding


Heat n Bond Lite EZ print sheets

This small version measures about 20″ square.  It would make a great pillow too!  Begin by rummaging through all your scraps and cut 2.5″ squares.  You need 100 total.  There are 10 rows of 10.  I did mine totally random.  I just grabbed 2 fabrics and sewed them together.

spooky mini quilt I paired all the fabrics then sewed those pairs with other pairs, leaving 10 pairs out.  Once you sew the 2 sets of 2, you have strips with 4 squares.  Pair those up to give you 10 sets of 8 squares.  Then add the reserved pairs to the ends.  This was the fastest way I found.  I lined up the rows the best I could.  I tried to avoid having 2 like fabrics touching.  Press all seams.spooky mini quilt 3

To add the cat applique, click HERE for the cat and HERE for the Spooky.  Print them in reverse.  I like to use Heat n Bond EZ print sheets – no tracing!!!  Once you’ve got your applique ready, iron it into place and stitch around it with black thread.
