HALLOWEEN CAME EARLY

The heat of the summer has brought the spooky out in us, or it could be a couple of really cute Halloween Fabric Collections.

Janice and I really love Halloween so of course, we picked up two new collections.  Now, the question, what do you do with those cute fabrics that you don't really want to cut up in little pieces.

We pulled out a couple of our patterns and said, "YES", this fabric would look great in this fabric.

Let's start with Janice,  she picked a new collection from Riley Blake called WITCH HAZEL.  Then she took our pattern Mr. Mustard which uses 13 fat quarters and some yardage.


She decided on a dark background, which really brought out the bright colors in the collection.  I love this quilt.  I have some fat quarters from this collection too, so I see this quilt in my future.


I am in love with all Basic Grey fabrics from Moda and their new Halloween collection EERIE was no exception.  I chose one of our newest patterns, Shake Rattle and Roll  which uses 14 fat quarters and yardage for the background.

I love the finished quilt.  I can't wait for October.

I just love the way both these patterns show off the beautiful fabrics.  They would also be great with Christmas fabrics too.  So, step outside the box and be creative with those holiday fabrics.  Check out all our patterns at www.abbeylanequilts.com.

Have a great week.

Marcea and Janice

I love the EERIE fabric too! I am planning to make a Halloween quilt for QuiltCon with mine. Both of the Halloween quilts came out great!
