Happy Halloween!

After my last quilt, I was so excited to sew a little mini together for one of my favorite holidays, Halloween!

When I first saw the pattern from Flamingo Toes, I was super excited about it and really wanted to make one. I don’t have an embroidery machine, but I do have an awesomely talented family member who does! She graciously agreed to do the spider for me on her machine.

I’ve never made anything with embroidery before. I’ve also never made a Dresden before. It’s my first attempt at a Dresden design.

I had a different fabric selection at first, but switched gears to this more colorful palette. And I did have to make a little Halloween fabric purchase to round out the colors!

With the whole mantel. Although I forgot to hang my bats… Oops! (That’s what 2020 has done to my brain!)

I’m so glad I was able to sneak in even a little Halloween sewing!

Halloween is going to be a little different this year for most of us, but I’m still excited about the day and evening and hope you are too! Hope you can find a little bit of normal today out of the crazy that seems to be going on all around us!

  1. Adorable – love the dresden, your fabrics chosen, and the spider -which i will have to hand embroider but so what… next year! I can see this can also be adapted for Dias de los Muertos; a skull or skeleton in place of the spider. 🙂 thanks for showing this inspiring little quilt!
