Halloween Mystery Quilt {Week 1}

Hi there! You guys, I have been SOOO excited for this day to come!  We have had such an awesome response to this Quilt Along --- and I feel super grateful you guys are joining me on this fun little sewing adventure for the next month!  Let's get started!



A few things before we begin: 

  • Please read ALL instructions before starting.
  • Please measure twice and cut once - I have made the cutting instructions very specific  - and there IS NOT a lot of room for cutting errors - so PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
  • I am posting the blocks for the quilt in no particular order - to keep this EXTRA MYSTERIOUS! 
  • Accuracy is KEY!  This quilt requires you to be very accurate with your piecing - A 1/4" quilting foot is recommended for piecing.
  • I have made the entire quilt already (and it is sooo cute!!) - and so all blocks and piecing have been tested. 
  • This is all about having fun!! This was a joy to design and it was even more fun piecing this quilt! I can't wait for the final reveal! 
Alright, I think you guys are ready to get started!

First, I have included a cutting sheet.  This sheet is cutting for the ENTIRE QUILT.  It is very helpful if you mark all your pieces with the letters I have assigned each piece.  Please measure twice and cut once! There is nothing worse than making a cutting mistake! So pay careful attention please!

This will be my first quilt along with you. I have some fabric set out and will stop at the quilt shop tomorrow for an additional black... I'm not really a Halloween person but more fall, but going to see if i can give this a try. Thanks

I love this! Right now I cannot dive in directly to sew because I'm on vacation with no sewing tools with me (I know, insane, right?!?) but when in September I'm back home I am so going to do this! I love Halloween!

I don't even care what the quilt looks like; it's just fun doing the blocks! They're so cute! Plus, I love Halloween fabric! Mine is scrappy Halloween fabric!
