Waaaay back in August I created this quilt to hang in The Fabric Mill as part of their Halloween display.
It’s a traditional “snowball” block, but once I got the quilt completed I decided that I’d call it “Gumballs” instead. Back in August I couldn’t imagine having the words “snow” and “Halloween” in the same sentence. Ha! The jokes on me, right? What was I just saying about a part of me dying when the snow falls? Yah, we got snow today.
This quilt measures 55” x 65” and I had a lot more fun making it than I thought I would. I’ve never been a big fan of Halloween fabrics. It helps that the greens and purples have been added into the mix with the blacks and oranges. I really love the finished quilt. I think that maybe I don’t love any of the Halloween fabrics on their own, but when combined with others then I like them? Maybe? I dunno.
For now the quilt is still hanging at the shop, but it will be nice to have next year to add to my still-growing collection of Halloween decorations. So far this year I have this wall hanging (I wrote the tutorial for it here):
And this monster wreath which I found through Pinterest:
Now I have to stop worrying about decorations and start working on costumes. As of tonight we have one kid decided on being Hawkeye and one not-so-decided on being skeleton/Buzz Lightyear/Mickey Mouse/zombie/nothing at all.
