Finish It Up Friday :: Halloween Slice Quilt Top
Happy Friday and Happy October! I'm so thrilled with the cool rainy weather we've had lately, I wait all summer for these first cool days of Fall. That air that's finally free of the oppressive humidity and heat just soothes and energizes me. Fall is my season and October is my month. Since I was feeling energized I decided that even though I started this quilt last October it will be finished before this October is done.
The pattern is the free Summer Slice tutorial from Alison at Cluck Cluck Sew . She has so many patterns that I love! This was a Halloween bundle from Pile O Fabric last year and then more of the same (oranges, yellow oranges, coral and blacks) from my stash. I love that is has a Halloween feeling without any actual Halloween fabric. I made enough that I had one extra block which gave me some flexibility as I arranged them.
I finished the blocks yesterday and then the assembly happened very quickly. My only rule was that I didn't want two of the exact same fabrics right next to each other but otherwise I tried to not over think the block placement. Mine finished at 57"x71" just like the pattern. I've got my flannel all ready for the back and now I just need to figure out the quilting!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
