Today we wanted to show you what we are working on at the moment and for our upcoming retail show in October [coming up way too soon!].
We have used one of our brand new patterns [for release in Houston at the end of October] and transformed it into a quick and simple Halloween quilt that we think you might just love as much as we do.
The new pattern is called "Spools Quartet" and this version is "Halloween Spools" and it is made with 12 different warm blacks, soft greys and our signature butterscotch oranges. It is the kind of quilt that comes together in a weekend with simple cutting and construction. Whip one out this week just in time to display for Halloween... really and truly! These blocks are crazy simple with no triangles, using the square, sew and flip method that most of you are probably familiar with.
As you can see in the photos we haven't even had a chance to bind it yet, but we had to show it to you nevertheless! The binding will be the same butterscotch solid as you see on the back of the quilt.
If the pattern looks at all familiar, that is because it was once released as an exclusive Fig Tree Club pattern several years ago and due to its popularity we have decided to recreate it into a standard Fig Tree pattern.
We hope you enjoy the photos. Kit and pattern info will be at the bottom of the post.
Name: Spools Quarter or Halloween Spools
Size: 68" x 68"

Love the fall/Halloween colors in spool pattern! with a little tweaking, the spools could be made to look like bats....

I like Joy's comment: "Stop showing all this cute stuff." LOL!! Will those kits be available at PIQF? I'll be there with bells on!! Hope to see you there!! :-) I've been taking your Craftsy class: it's going slower than I hoped, having had too many family responsibilities to tend to, but I did take my sewing machine on my last trip and managed to sew 4 blocks in the hotel!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
