a Halloween 16 Patch
60 x 72
I decided to try to use up all my holiday fabrics in 2018. I declared it my Holiday Cheer Challenge. It will be fun to see how many things will get made that include holiday fabrics. The holidays include Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter, Fourth of July (patriotic) and St. Patrick's Day. Not only will I be making some new things but I hope to also finish up some old things.
This Halloween 16 patch used up quite a few bits and pieces of fabric I had left over from making quilts and pillowcases for the grandkids, trick or treat bags and other miscellaneous items. My oldest granddaughter was born on Halloween. She's a real treat!
I quilted it on the machine with alternating up and down loops in each square. I meant for them to be oriented up and down like you see here but I evidently put the quilt in the wrong way when I started to quilt so they loop sideways but it's the same effect. I need to work on making my loops the same size but sometimes it's rather difficult to push a large quilt through a small harp.
I used up some Halloween fabric on the back too. It's actually a quilt of it's own - a giant four patch.
It's a little blurry but you can see the four patch consists of monsters and creepy things in jars.
And that's my first Holiday Cheer Challenge completion! I think I'll make a tab to keep track of all the holiday cheer.
