Halloween Quilts- Which one is your FAVORITE?

Pin It


 Awhile back, my mom requested "Holiday Quilts" for her upcoming Birthdays and Christmas's. 
I couldn't have been more excited! 
I had already made her THIS 4th of July quilt,
and THIS Christmas Quilt,
so Halloween was next.  

I made this one first.  I then decided that it wasn't quite her style.

So I made another one!

Two quilts in two weeks, whilst getting ready to move!
Overwhelmed much? 

But I got them both finished, quilted and bound in record time, I took them down to my Mom's this past weekend for her to choose her favorite of the two.



 Quilt #1 SPIDERWEB BLOCKS


I am not going to lie, I LOVE THIS ONE!  
The blocks look VERY DIFFICULT, but the secret is they really aren't very hard. 

I actually made my own version of a spiderweb block as I didn't want the pieces to match up. 
One of these days I will get a tutorial up for this block. 

My dear-sweet-talented friend Rhonda did the amazing spiderweb quilting job.  
She is AMAZING!

I backed it with this cute and simple Orange Spiderweb Print, and it was ready to go. 

 Then, THIS new collection arrived at the shop....

Quilt #2  Spooktacular


I just couldn't help myself, I KNEW that this collection fit my Mom a little bit better, so I whipped this baby up! I patterned it after THIS awesome quilt by Fresh Lemon Quilts!
So simple, and yet so captivating!

Once again, my good friend Rhonda worked her magic on the quilting. 
Each of the bigger rectangles have a different design. 
LOVE!
Did I mention that she quilted both of my quilts in 3 days!!!!  SHE'S AMAZING! 


and I backed it with THIS print, which is one of my faves in the SHOP right now!


My mom loves houndstooth, so the binding was perfect!



And now she gets to choose......WHICH ONE? 


So I ask.....

WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

These are both fantastic! I think I would choose the spider web blocks.... But I do love the backing and binding of Quilt #2... They are both incredible holiday quilts! Great work!!

This is a tough question! While I like the pattern of the spider web blocks, I prefer the 'Spooktacular' prints!

Both are fabulous. But the second one is looking nice. But both have good fabric prints. We have our Threads of Time, creative sewing & retreat center the best among all quilt fabric shops in Danville. We offer a place of inspiration and encouragement to all who enter our doors for the best quilt fabric clothes.

Good work. Keep it up.
