Primary TechniquePieced

Easy

Note: This patterned was designed using fabrics from the Hallowgraphix collection by In The Beginning Fabrics. Fabrics are coded in materials list.

MATERIALS:

Note: Yardage requirements are based on 40" fabric width.

  • 3/4 yd. Black/Tan Spider Web (5HG1) for wreath background and inner border
  • 1/2 yd. Orange Leaves (3HG1) for wreath
  • 1/2 yd. Taupe Leaves (3HG2) for wreath
  • 1/2 yd. Jack-o-Lanterns (4HG1) for appliqué (Yardage is generous to allow for selective cutting.)
  • 2/3 yd. Dark Brown Tonal (6HG3) for bat and binding
  • 1 yd. Halloween Stripe (2HG1) for middle border
  • 1-1/2 yds. Collage (1HG1) for outer border
  • 2-7/8 yds. for backing (If you don’t prewash your fabric, and if you don’t mind working with a smaller-than-usual margin of backing fabric in your “quilt sandwich,” it’s possible to get the backing out of one length – rather than two – of 44-45"-wide fabric. In that case, you’ll need 1-3/8 yds. of backing fabric.)


INSTRUCTIONS:

Cutting:

From Black/Tan Spider Web, cut in order given:

  • 4 strips, 1-3/4" x width of fabric, for wreath background
  • 1 square, 6-1/2" x 6-1/2", for wreath background
  • 4 rectangles, 4-1/2" x 6-1/2", for wreath background
  • 8 rectangles, 2-1/2" x 4-1/2", for wreath background
  • 8 squares, 2-1/2" x 2-1/2", for wreath background
  • 2 squares, 2-7/8" x 2-7/8"; cut each square once diagonally to make 4 triangles for wreath background

From Orange Leaves, cut:

  • 3 squares, 2-7/8" x 2-7/8"; cut each square once diagonally to make 6 triangles for wreath
  • 44 squares, 2-1/2" x 2-1/2", for wreath
  • 1 rectangle, 1-1/2" x 2-1/2", for wreath

From Taupe Leaves, cut:

  • 1 square, 2-7/8" x 2-7/8"; cut square once diagonally to make 2 triangles for wreath
  • 46 squares, 2-1/2" x 2-1/2", for wreath

From Jack-o-Lanterns, selectively cut:

  • 11 Jack-o-Lanterns, for appliqué (If using fusible appliqué, follow instructions on your fusible product, and cut out Jack-o-Lanterns along edges of motifs. If using a traditional hand-appliqué technique, be sure to leave a 1/8"-1/4" seam allowance around each Jack-o- Lantern motif as you cut it out.)

  • 2 strips, 5" x width of fabric, for outer border (top and bottom)
