Halloween Quilts: Day 4
This is one of my very oldest Halloween quilts that I still own. I distinctly remember buying this kitty fabric at Walmart for $1.00 a yard! I had just learned a new technique from a guild friend which I called Magic Stax. This was before Bethany Reynolds published her similar technique called Stack 'n Whack. I made this in 2002 and it was published in Quilt Magazine.
|Halloween Pinwheel Quilt|
Here is a photo of the fabric. Note that sweet kitty (who's about to be chopped into little triangles).
I have made several quilts using this technique. Do a search for Pinwheel blocks and you will find them here.
Here are two other quilts with black cats featured. This was made about 20 years ago and these blocks are paper pieced. I gave this away long ago. But those pumpkins keep calling to me to be made again.
|Kitty in the Pumpkin Patch|
And one more quilt with cats. This is a simple Mariner's Compass that I was able to fussy cut one kitty in the center of. I bring this out every Halloween. I like the addition of that bright green and purple, too.
So, that's what you can do with cats for Halloween! But, you can leave out those spiders!
