Halloween "Home is Where the Haunt Is" Quilt Along



We are so excited to be offering these "Home is Where the Haunt Is" Quilt Kits.   This pattern was designed by Kim of KimberBell Designs.  Thanks Kim for letting us sell your fun Halloween pattern!   We love the embroidered words "Bugs and Hisses Welcome Here" and  "Mind Your Mummy".  


 Below is a picture of your quilt kit.  These are available on our SISTERSANDQUILTERS.COM AND SISTERSANDQUILTERS.ETSY.COM.  The price is $55.00 and includes ALL of the fabrics for the blocks, the border, and the binding.  And all of the accessories are included except the black bats you see above the house.  We have some bat buttons on order but they won't be in stock until the 21st of July.  You will need to provide your own fusible web for the applique.  

This pattern is a great summer project because it is divided into 7 steps.  Join us each Wednesday and piece your quilt top along with us!.   We will be posting all 7 steps to help make it easy for you.  

Let's get started this week on Step 1

First A BIG THANK YOU to Sandra  for dividing each step in a separate bag for you.  She really made this easy for us.  She also cut the fabric to approximately the sizes you need - Saves you time and money!  Thanks Sandra!      

 Step 1  Sewing the 9 patch blocks and left corner block.
I have cut my squares and stacked them - all ready to sew.  Just follow the pattern cutting instructions.  By the way Kim has done a great job with the directions in this pattern.  Lots of diagrams and photos.
My 9 patch.  3 rows of 3 squares.  Next...just sew the rows together.    I love these gorgeous Andover quilting fabrics!  These prints were designed by Jo Morton  and are perfect for this project.

As you can see, I have sewn one of the 9 patch blocks to the side pieces and TaDaaa ...... Step 1 is finished.
(The Ric Rac is the Broom handle and the rest is completed in the last step)
This should be a fun project to do together.   We have sold several kits all ready.  If your one of those speeeeeedy seamstresses and you have finished your quilt, then pretty please send us pictures of your finished quilts - we would love to see them.
Happy Quilting!

    1. This was fun to sew. The applique was much easier than I expected. Scroll up through the weeks to see each section done. A friend of ours added purple to the quilt - bottom right on point squares with the black. We loved it with the purple.
