Monster Mash Blog Hop

Welcome to the last day of the Monster Mash Sew It - Show it Challenge, hosted by Joan of Moose Stash Quilting.

Today I want to show off my finished Bat quilt!
Pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew.

I started this project in 2021, cutting out most of the pieces. 

And showed off some of the blocks during last year's hop.  

Last year the plan was to quilt it in time for the family Halloween party, but a couple folks got the flu and the the party got canceled.  With no deadline, the quilting got postponed... till now.

I had two kitties help quilt this one up.  My orange kitty, Avi, and my black kitty, Boonky.
Two perfect kitty colors for Halloween.

The quilting was rather quick, a meandered a zig zag ish type stich.  Sewing straight lines then changing direction every now and then while trying to keep a similar distance between lines.

Boonky was in charge of the final inspection.

This is actually Bat quilt #1 of 2.  I made two tops last year.  Both were neatly folded and stored away waiting their turn to be quilted.

Version 2 is already loaded on the longarm so it is definitely next on the to do list!

I used the last of this Halloween print for the back and paired it with an orange dot fabric.

This was a fun pattern to make.  The bats sewed up pretty quick.
I definitely recommend it if you need a quick Halloween quilt.

If you missed any, make sure to go back and visit the other participants!  They have shown off some spooky fun creations!


Happy Sewing!
