H - word

Its not too early for the "H" word is it? Halloween is a month and half away so I was getting itchy to make progress on my new seasonal quilt.

This is from made up from a layer cake of Haunted Mansion by Sanae from Moda using a pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.

The quilt was a little busy for me, so I added the black border and corners and I love how it turned out. I think that black makes the colors firm and that they would have tended to wash out a bit otherwise.

I have some cool ideas for the back and I can't wait to get it done, but, that will need to wait a day to two as I need to cut another batch of flags.
Ending with the obligatory tree and sky shot to show that yes, it is still summer in Texas. It was 92 with a heat index of 102 when I was out taking this picture.


  1. The heat doesn't really make you feel the "h" you were talking about, but that quilt is all Halloween love! I like the black border and cornerstones, too!

  2. Your quilt has turned out great. The black solid was a great addition.

  3. love it!
    you're welcome to come share this project on my linky blog :)

  4. Hi Neighbor!

    I love that fabric line! It is perfect for the "H-word"!

    Yep, it was also another unseasonably hot day over here. But, it did rain this evening for the 1st time in a month!

    Thanks for sharing,

  5. Adorable! Please don't mind if I copy you sometime and use a Halloween layer cake I've got laying around to do one like this. Great color placement!
