Blogger's Quilt Festival

Amy's Creative Side - Blogger's Quilt Festival

I stumbled on to Amy's Creative Side during her spring Blogger's Quilt Festival. I found so many cute quilt ideas and blogs to follow!! There are a TON of fantastic quilts linked up here. Check it out if you get a chance.

 I was torn between which quilt I wanted to share, I ended up picking my Halloween Quilt. I know it is past Halloween, but it is the most recent quilt I finished, plus it the most fall of the two quilts I was considering. The other quilt is this one ...but here is the Halloween Quilt.

This is by far the most intensive quilt I have done yet. All of the squares are my own, I did not use a pattern, just took them right out of my head...

My two favorites are by far the pumpkin...

And the cute spider.

I backed it in a soft orange flannel, with a pieced strip. I did a meandering stipple quilting, but also added some detail to the pumpkin, spider and square. I love how it looks on the back on these squares....

It looks ADORABLE on my couch and I have loved cuddling it all month...but it is time to retire it to the basket and get a Thanksgiving one going.

Thanks for visiting...happy crafting!

Well done, Shilo. I love that you designed all those great squares yourself.

Beautiful post, and so very true. It is very hard to lose someone you love, but it is something we all must face.
