Quilt As You Go Halloween Quilt
Welcome to the October Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I chose to make a Quilt As You Go Halloween Quilt. My inspiration came from this pin from The Seasoned Homemaker.
With a quilt as you go quilt, you add the batting and quilt the individual pieces before adding the backing. This makes it much easier to put together with a regular sewing machine. I used larger size pieces because I had a charm pack that I wanted to use up. But the directions are basically the same.
Here are the materials I used:
1 pack Halloween charm squares (approx 42 5″ x 5″ squares)
2 each fat quarter in white, purple and black
Scraps of fabric for candy corn and bat appliques
Steam A Seam Lite sheets – I used these to iron down my appliques
1 ½ yards backing fabric
Small piece of white ricrac
2 packages Wright’s seam binding
Follow the basic directions found at The Seasoned Homemaker website. Just know this quilt will be larger. Also, I used premade seam binding instead of binding with the backing fabric. I just free handed my Halloween appliques. Here is a picture with the sizes.
This was fun to make and didn’t take too long. It is a great quilt to use up some scraps you might have laying around! I’ve been using it as a lap quilt but it could also be used as a wall hanging instead.

Your quilt is lovely, I’ve not done anything with the quilt as you go method for years. I must try again. It’s easy and quick if I remember rightly.
Adorable and so cute. I love all the colors and the prints.
How fun is the pattern. It would be a great little gift to give to Grand babies. Thanks for sharing!
This is so adorable Roseanne! I have never been a person who sews (well, maybe a button) but this makes me want to try it 🙂
I love how that turned out. What a fun Halloween quilt. Pinned.
What a cute quilt! I should try doing it that way. I love crafting, but have yet to complete a quilt project. I don’t have experience in quilting, so I usually give up and move on to something else!
Quilting is a craft on my need to try list. I should take a class and meet some new friends. Such a pretty way to use up left over pieces of fabric. What a great keepsake.
Super cute! It’s been years since I’ve quilted.

This is so adorable, Roseanne! My mom use to quilt bed coverings when I was growing up! And to be quite honest, while the quilts looked pretty, I hated them! I was a skinny kid and they were so heavy on me at night that parts of my body actually ached in the morning from the weight of the quilt. Besides that, they do represent works of art!
Love your quilt! I don’t think I have the patience to do a whole quilt, but I can see doing a small version for a wall decoration.
Cute quilt! I have a panel & fat quarters all picked out to make a Halloween quilt, but I doubt I’ll get it done before Halloween! 😀
This is so cute! I’m dying to make a quilt but I just never feel I have enough time! Pinned
Such a fun quilt!
