They're creepy and they're kooky.
Mysterious and spooky.
They're all together ooky.
NEW Halloween quilt fabric!
The delightful thing about Halloween quilt fabric...
...it's the only time when matching the decor in your house isn't a thing.
Seriously. It doesn't need to go with the couch!
It's Halloween, right?
Nothing but creepy, ghoulish, spine-tingling FUN!!!
And this year...
...the Fabric-Goddesses deliver.
You find something that NEEDS to be in your stash.
You've strolled through these tempting Halloween quilt fabric collections, caressing them with your eyes and have found one (only one?) that must come live with you.
BUT. (There's always a 'but' in quilting isn't there?)
You don't have a pattern. No idea what to do with it.
Fabric shopping should be exhilarating and effortless—not some guilt-producing exercise where you're left remorseful about your shiny, glow-in-the-dark purchase.
Shop with confidence because you know I won't leave you hanging with no ideas.
Under each fabric line, you'll see links to my affiliates—those colored buttons—where you can make a purchase if you're sew inclined. (Read more about what an affiliate is here.)
Underneath the colored buttons you'll see large thumbnails that lead to some or all of the following:
- Fabric panels. These are frequently omitted from precut packages. If you need a quilt on the double, fabric panels a quick way whip up a to-be-gifted quilt in a jiffy.
- Free patterns. Manufacturers want you to buy their fabric. (Duh!—right???) What better enticement than good-looking, no-cost patterns. Pretty smart, eh?
- Commercial Halloween quilt patterns, specifically with a cover quilt made from the line you're looking at. It's nice to see how the fabric works up for real. Makes us better quilty-consumers. And if the design makes the cut, you've got the opportunity to buy right at your fingertips.
- Kits. It's a beautiful thing when you see EXACTLY the quilt you want to make AND can order all the fabric in one fell swoop. Dodge wasting your time to enter each fabric and its yardage individually, or worse yet, having to travel to multiple stores to find all the SKUs you need. Been there. Done that. Bought the t-shirt. No fun.
Inspiration comes in all kinds of forms (even ghostly ones!).
May these extra goodies help you decide between so many BOO-ti-ful Halloween quilt fabric choices!
