Throwback Thursday: Halloween Quilt Inspiration | New Quilters

Pumpkins by Moonlight Quilt October 2003I don’t know about you, but I always start my seasonal quilts a bit too late to have them done for the season. I won’t confess exactly how many times I’ve finished a a Halloween quilt the day after Halloween, or a Christmas quilt two days after Christmas. (Let’s just say it’s not an unusual occurrence.) But when it happens, I just laugh at myself and say I’m ready very early for the next year!

Here’s one that did get finished on time. This Halloween table runner from my book, Quilts for Beginners, can be made from start to finish in an afternoon. The fabric was mostly inexpensive fat quarters I picked up at the local big-box fabric store.  Halloween Quilt as you Go Table Runner

Here’s some Halloween quilt inspiration I first posted a few years ago. I wish I had the talent to make this stunning pumpkin quilt, which I photographed at the Pacific International Quilt Fair. Check out the link to see quite a few more Halloween quilts.
