So here's the quilt of the month! For you folks new to my blog, I installed this quilt rod in my living room last year and have been enjoying hanging a different quilt on this rack every month or so, this month's theme, Halloween.
This isn't a new quilt, it's my Lifetime Quilt # 25. I like this quilt as much or more than when I made it. I've made over 50 quilts since I made this one, and it makes me happy that I still enjoy it. Although seeing it only one month a year probably adds to the appeal, makes it a little more special. I guess I could hang this quilt anytime, but as long as I live in this house, this will be my October Quilt of the Month.
Last year I just hung it over the bannister, because the quilt rack wasn't up yet, it sure looks better on the rack.
This is one of those quilts where the fabric does all the work.
The blocks are just a wonky pentagon surrounded by strips until you get the size you want, square it up, add some sashing and cornerstones, a few borders and you have a quit!
The fabric was by Maywood Studios and was named Happy Halloween. The border fabric is my favorite of all the fabrics in the line, although the stripe I used for the binding is a close second.
Here's the back, I get to enjoy this side of the quilt the other 11 months of the year. I hang this quilt in my closet and fold it backside out.
I'm looking forward to quiet fall weekend with plenty of sewing, kind of like a retreat, but I don't have to leave home!
I hope you have wonderful weekend too.
