5 Oct – The Splendid Sampler™ sew-a-long

It’s October already and the autumn is fast approaching in the northern hemisphere. The leaves are changing colour and the days are getting cooler and the spooky quilts are appearing in time for Halloween.

Here is a cheeky Halloween themed quilt to dress up your home.

Pattern available here.

Moda Grunges are on sale here. A smorgasbord of warm, fall tones to build up your Halloween stash.

Todays blocks are from designers Julie Karasek and Kate Spain.

Julie Karasek tells us – ‘Don’t be afraid of trying new techniques. It’s only fabric. The worst thing that is going to happen will be you need to make another block. Make sure to keep a sharp seam ripper at your side to make any unsewing as painless as possible’.

Kate SaysWhen selecting fabrics for your quilt project, don’t spend too much time deliberating. Set the clock and give yourself just a couple minutes to pick colors and prints based on your instincts. When you sew with colors that you feel strongly about, you’ll connect with what you’re making on a deeper level. You can always refine your selections to include more contrast, but by starting this way, you’ll create personal palettes that you will love. 

This project is Run and Hosted by Jane Davidson and Pat Sloan.

We would love to see all your blocks so add your links down below with the blue button. The Tutorial on how to load a photo
