Work In Progress Wednesday :: Halloween Quilt

So Summer weather has arrived here in Georgia just in time for FALL. Blech. Summer is my least favorite (unless I'm at the beach or poolside) and Fall is my absolute favorite so I'm dreaming of cooler temperatures and crisp apples and pumpkins and fall leaves...you get the idea.

I've been saving these Lizzy House Guising prints for a Halloween quilt and I'm ready to make it happen. After all, October is only three-ish weeks away and cooler weather can't be far behind, right?
So I love Blend's Spooktacular line as much as Guising and I was thinking about combining them to make a St. Louis 16. I'm not sure about the larger scale prints though - I'm afraid they'll get too chopped up at 4.5" and the images will get lost. So I may have some more fabrics to audition but what a fun way to spend and afternoon in the air conditioning. Sigh. ;-)

Have a great day - we're halfway to the weekend!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

  2. Could you make a giant 16 patch to go in the middle?

  3. I know that feeling. Much to my annoyance summer has decided to hand around here too just when I'm waiting for autumn and all it's pretty colours.

  4. Love Ella's idea to do a giant 16 patch in the middle! I've been hanging on to a stack of Guising since last summer, someday i'll make a Halloween quilt!
