For the hop, we were to sew up something new for Halloween. A while back, I made a cute little mini shadow quilt, and ever since then, I’ve been wanting to do a version for Halloween. I call my quilt Dark Shadows.
This shadow quilt is my own design. I decided to enlarge the blocks in this version, to better feature my collection of Halloween fabrics. I also wanted to try nesting the squares, and seeing what kind of effect that had. I have to say, I like the results!
The quilting is simple because I wanted the squares to pop!
For a little zing, I used a striped binding. Don’t you just love it?
Here are the quilt details:

We were also supposed to feature our favorite Halloween decoration in the hop. Mine is a quilt my bestie Alice made for me called Tiny Twisted Jack. Isn’t he wonderful?
