Last fall I saw a Halloween quilt made with the Fig Tree Quilts Navajo Stars Pattern and I immediately pinned it knowing I had to make one to add to our Halloween home decor.
For my quilt I pulled Riley Blake Bella Blvd fabrics in shades or orange, gray and black from the Halloween Magic, Too Cute To Spook, Military Max, Snapshots and Puppy Park Collections for my version of the quilt. One of my favorite things about the Riley Blake Bella Blvd Fabric Collections is how easily so many of the designs mix and match and work together!
I love how the Halloween Navajo Stars look like spider webs on a white on white background. While the navajo stars look difficult the process was actually a breeze. No y-seams at all. The pattern explains the piecing process in detail however I found Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilt’s Smarter Strip Quiliting Class at Craftsy super helpful in learning how to work with angles easily.
I chose to have this quilt professional quilted since I enjoy the piecing process but maneuvering a large quilt on my machine can be a bit of a hassle. I used Crinklelove.com and can’t recommend them enough! Great service, speedy turn around and the quilting….just fabulous! When I received the quilt back from them I sewed on the binding and my family’s new Halloween Quilt is ready to be enjoyed!
Finished quilt measures: 68” x 68”
The quilt is backed with the Halloween Magic Black Halloween Stars fabric.
