I made it for my husband’s aunt, who he always likes to gift with a spooky affair. I figured that this quilt would be a fun way to celebrate the season, but the monochrome colors make it a less in-your-face, cheesy Halloween quilt.
I may have also used as an excuse to use the adorb “Party of Boo Gray” fabric from Lizzy House’s “Guising” collection. ^_~ And luckily, my favorite quilting fabric store also had a sizeable collection of Halloween fabric, of which my husband picked out a bunch of matching black/white/gray fabric. That man has a much better fashion sense than I do.
I totally used Rae’s Storytime Squares quilt pattern, complete with fabric adhesive and cheater’s bind-off method. Rae’s instructions were great and easy to understand. Not bad for my first real quilt. And now my husband has requested one for himself, so I guess that’s a good sign.
Oh, and my husband decided to be goofy when I asked him to help me take some photos. Serves me right, I suppose. =)
