I feel like I’m just flying through the construction of quilt tops after all the time I spent on the Steampunk Crazy Quilt.  In the span of a week I have been able to piece together a small Halloween themed quilt.

This quilt top started with the amazing Spooktacular line by Maude Asbury for Blend Fabrics.

The first fabric I saw from the line was the cats, and I instantly fell in love.  I actually almost bought yardage to make a dress.  I ended up finding a great fat quarter pack from the line over at Fat Quarter Shop (now sold out), that I was able to purchase at a great price.

From there, I added several black and white prints, left over from my Double Exposure Quilt.  It was a good start, and with the addition of a few more Halloween (read orange and black) prints and a few fun ribbons, I was able to create some fun crazy quilt blocks with a mod feel.

Because of my limited color palette, I chose to keep these blocks simple, without adding extra embellishments like buttons, lace and embroidery.  Instead, I set the blocks in sashing with coordinating corner accents.  I love how clean this looks, leaving the focus of the quilt on the amazing fabrics.

For backing on this quilt, I went with yardage from the Ghouls Night Out line at Maywood Studios. The black and orange Halloween-themed damask print is super fun.
