Loose Threads: Halloween Quilt Table Topper Finish

Halloween Quilt Table Topper Finish

I just finished this little Halloween quilt/table topper.  It was made from charm squares that I had left over from another Halloween quilt.

This quilt was made by the method that I showed in the photo below, taking a rectangle of charm squares, cutting it twice, and sewing it back together.  You can see that blog post here

I really didn't like the fact that the points of the squares would be cut off when sewing the binding on, so I trimmed off the outside to leave about a half inch seam allowance.

I machine quilted the pumpkin patch design found at Day Style Designs by Leah Day.

When riding in the car, I like to stitch down quilt bindings to make the time go faster.

We finally did make the hike up to Laurel Falls yesterday.  The hike was 2.6 miles, but it was worth every step.

This is just a sample of the fall color here.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
