“When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam, may luck be yours on Halloween.”
Most of the quilts I have pieced have been my own design, or patterns that I get from friends, books, stores, or online. I think I have only made two quilts that came as a kit. Because of this pandemic, I am only shopping online for fabric. Thanks to the great people at Studio Stitch and Mesquite Bean, my virtual fabric shopping has been successful. Recently, I saw a kit from Prairie Grass Patterns, by April Rosenthal. The Midnight Magic kit came with two beautiful Halloween jelly rolls; background, binding, border, applique fabric; and laser cut lettering. The fabric is what sold me on this kit. The kit also had the triangle ruler for making hexagons. I have been wanting to make a hexagon quilt, so I purchased the kit. This pattern definitely was a challenge for me because of the seams. It was easy to nest the seams while piecing the triangles into hexagons. The headache came when I had to piece the hexagons together. There was no way, that I could find, to nest the seams. It was a bit of a struggle, but I ended up getting the seams to lay flat, even though they were not nested. Now that it is completed, I can say that I will not be making another hexagon quilt any time soon!
Hoping you find luck, this Halloween.
