Halloween Haunts Blog Hop


Today is the start of the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop. 
I am happy to be one of the bloggers who get to kick off the festivities.

For this hop I decided to dig into my stash of Halloween Fabrics and I made three different items.
First up,  I got out my old packs of Haunted Mansion by Moda and mixed it with a little bit of Kona solids in Snow and Pewter and whipped up this spiffy little quilt.
I used the Scnibble pattern Brocante and made it a wee bit bigger so I could drape it over the couch.

If you are having trouble finding a great Halloween pattern, take your favorite regular pattern and use Halloween fabrics.  It will turn out fabulous!

I love this backing fabric.  I found it on sale at Hobby Lobby and knew it would be perfect for backing some of my Halloween projects.  


Next up I used some of my Connecting Threads Rest In Pieces fabric and made a table runner for my front room. The pattern is a freeby and is called The Easy Christmas Table Runner.  Of course I altered the fabrics for something a little more spooky. 



My last item is really 8 items.  I made 8 small Treat Totes. I love making these little gift bags.
The pattern is from Happy Zombie and you can find the pattern here.
 I used several different Halloween Scraps for these tiny totes.  They whip up super fast!

All they need now is some candy to fill them up.


Make sure you check out the other hoppers today!





Also the Fat Quarter Shop is hosting a Give Away every day of the hop. 
Check it out!  Most days the giveaway only lasts one day.  But on Friday's they last the whole weekend.

Happy Haunting!

  4. WoW, WoW, WoW and WoW.. you blew me away, first the quilt, then the runner, then the bags... WoW.. How'd you do all that and I love that you let people know they don't need a halloween pattern to use the prints.. some of the best patterns are great for novelty type prints because you can really show them off.

    That runner is just stunning, the colors and fabrics just blend so nicely and the bags are just fun fun and more fun. What a great way to kick off this hop..
