[finished] Halloween quilt

This is the year I turned the Haunted Mansion jelly roll (that I've had for 4 years) into a quilt. And in time for Halloween, even!

IMG_5485I did straight-line quilting on one side of each long seam. This is the largest quilt I've quilted on my Bernina 830 - it measures just under 56" x 76". Much rolling, folding, and wrangling was required to quilt the center seams. IMG_5489-3 The back is pieced from yardage of other Halloween fabric I had in my stash. I love the monster movie posters and hearses!

  1. Love the Halloween quilt! Instead of rolling and folding a quilt in order to reach the center to quilt it, just bunch up the quilt! Don't try to be neat and tidy. Just scrunch! That works so much better!

  2. Thanks for the tip! I'll try scrunching next time.
