Let me welcome you, friends, with my new super easy quilt made with the frightfully delightful Spooky Town fabrics by Blend. Carla, here from Creatin’ in the Sticks and I couldn’t wait to put Cori Dantini’s characters into a quilt. Adding Deco Foil made the perfect accent for a spooky welcome.

To create this quilt start by choosing your favorite blocks from the panel. Choose 2 blocks and cut them out. Each measures 10″ x 10 1/2″. Cut 3 strips from the black fabric 2 1/2″ x 10″ and add them to the the panel blocks on the top, bottom, and between the panel blocks. Now cut 2 1/2″ x 26 1/2″ black strips for the sides of the panel blocks.
Next add the blue border. Cut 2 strips 5″ x 26 1/2″ for the sides and 2 strips 5″ x 23″ for the top and bottom.
Once the sashing and borders are stitched, it’s time to accent the quilt with appliques and Deco Foil™.
Apply HeatnBond® Lite to the back of the left over panels. Cut out the characters and apply them to the borders following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Tip: Don’t stitch around the characters now. Wait and do the stitching as part of the quilting once the quilt sandwich has been put together.TooltipText
Adding the welcome foil is so fun. Print out letters on a computer. For this quilt, a “spooky” font was used. Trace the letters on the back (smooth side) of a sheet of Deco Foil™ Hot Melt Adhesive. No reverse is needed.
Cut out the letters and place them on the quilt. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to apply the hot melt letters. Let the letters cool and peel off the paper.
Apply the Deco Foil™ to the letters following the instructions by the manufacturer.
Tip: Pressure is key here. Really press the iron down. Ironing for a full 30 seconds.TooltipText
Let the letters cool completely before removing the foil.
Quilt, bind, and hang this quilt to welcome all your “spooky” friends this Halloween.
