Halloween Sewing Project and a 50% off Coupon

Halloween is one of my favorite crafty holidays.  My kids may be too old for trick or treating, but I'll never be too old to decorate and create Spooky Spaces!

My first new Halloween project of the year is a Log Cabin pumpkin wall quilt.

I love all the fun Halloween fabrics that Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores offer each year - I paired some of my favorites with orange prints to create the base for this pumpkin mini-quilt - it's a simple courthouse steps-style log cabin block at its base.  I added half-square triangles to the corners, along with raw-edge applique accents, and the pumpkin came to life!  My favorite part may be the candy corn fabric on the binding!

This one is a wall quilt, but if you used wider strips and kept building the courthouse steps, it could be a great pumpkin throw quilt.  Just scale up the accents.

For more fun Halloween projects, visit Jo-Ann's Simply Spooktacular webpage.
