Hi there! Today Nettie (my very talented) mom is stopping by to share this fun Halloween Mini quilt as a part of our Halloween Series this month!
I love mini quilts! They are so fun to make, and you can place them anywhere and everywhere! I love to place mine on end tables, hang them on the wall, or just put them on the center of my kitchen table! They are a fun way to decorate your home!
Let's get started!
3/8 yard of orange (for center)
1/2 yard of various orange prints
1/4 yard of black
1/2 yard of fusible web
5/8 yard of backing
1/4 yard of binding
Template - print here!
4 - 4" black squares -cut in quarters diagonally. (A)
4 - 4" orange squares - cut in quarters diagonally. (A)
12 - 3 1/4" orange squares. (B)
1 - 8 7/8" x 8 7/8: orange square (C)
2 - 2" x 14 1/4" strips (border)
2 - 2" x 17 1/2" strips (border)
Step 1: Make your hourglass block units.
Take an orange triangle and a black triangle and sew them together on one of the short sides. Press. Make two. Then sew your two larger triangles together to make your hourglass unit. Press. Make 4 hourglass units.
Step 2: Sew 2 sets of B squares together. Press
Step 3: Sew a row of 3 B squares together and then add an hourglass block on the top and the bottom. Press.
Step 4: Sew a set on to the top and the bottom of your C square. Press.
Step 6: Add your borders. Take your 14 1/2" strips and sew onto the left and right side, and press. Then add your 2 17 1/2" strips to the top and bottom. Press.
Step 7: Add your appliqué. Print out template. Cut out bats, and letters. Iron some black fabric to some fusible web (according to package directions) and then trace your letters (trace them upside down) and your bats onto your fusible web backed fabric. Cut them out and fuse them onto the center of your mini quilt. Stitch around them to secure. Add some buttons for the bats eyes.
That's it! I'm glad I could stop by and share this fun mini with you!
