As we transition into fall, we’ve been treated to some incredibly fun quilts lately. With folks gearing up for Halloween or wrapping up projects before the holiday season, this month is all about the world of mythical creatures. We’ve got Bigfoot, Monsters, and Unicorns to share with you today. Let’s dive right in and celebrate the changing seasons!
Spooky Stitches: Dana's Halloween Quilt
Earlier this month, Dana brought in an adorable panel Halloween quilt for her house this season. This is Halloween Ball from Henry Glass. She made it from a pattern you can download for free from the Henry Glass website.
We both laughed about the bats in the corner. We weren’t sure if they were upside down or not. With bats, I’m not sure it matters. Don’t you just love that pumpkin fabric? She quilted it with a paper pantograph called Square Spiral, which was pretty close to spiderwebs. So cute!
Summer's Legendary BigFoot Quilt
Summer brought us a panel quilt from Riley Blake’s Legends of National Parks collection featuring BigFoot. This quilt is for her husband and his dog to cuddle in. This was a pattern from Keepsake Quilting by Rebecca Craven. It is super cool. I really like the trees in the borders and the stars in the corners.
To quilt it, Summer used a pantograph called Forest which is just an outline of trees. We used a medium grey thread which I think reads well on all the colors and doesn’t ruin the panel. What a fun quilt for her hubby!
A special Unicorn Quilt for Margot
Our last mythical creature is the unicorn. This was a quilt made by Debbie and quilted by Angela. This mother and daughter duo came in to get certified to use our machines. This one is embroidered with her granddaughter’s name on it.
Aren’t the unicorns so sweet? We all agreed that the Star Dance paper pantograph was the perfect match for this quilt. I think Margot is really going to like this to snuggle with. The fact that it was made for her by both her mom & grandma makes it extra special!
We’ve had a truly magical time being surrounded by the whimsy of these mythical creatures, and we’re excited to see more wonders of the upcoming fall season. If you’ve been crafting quilts, we’d love to see them! Connect with us on Facebook and Instagram to share your creations. We can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
