Fall is in the air around here! Finally the weather seems to be turning a little bit toward my absolute favorite season of the year! Almost time for all my favorite sweaters to come out!!
Last week we released a new Halloween Kit in what has become our annual Halloween project made from a mix of blacks, oranges, greys and creams. We love creating these projects so much and look forward to them every year. The quilts are not from a certain line or Fig Tree collection but instead are a mix of different MODA fabrics, always starting with a few of our favorite Fig Tree oranges and going from there to see what we can come up with! Its one of my favorite parts of the process… the creating of a color palette!
In this year's bundle, the fabrics were just screaming to be made into one of our newest patterns, Navajo Stars. Now I love the original Navajo Stars ALOT… one of my all time favorite quilts.
Navajo Stars is created entirely from SOMERSET fabrics!
Originally this pattern was inspired by this quilt below. I absolutely fell in love with those stars but had NO INTENTION of making them out of hexagons. When I squinted, I saw strips and we had a Honeybun coming with our collection so it was one of those light bulb moments!
And the moment we started working on it, it just looked and felt like the designs in a traditional Navajo blanket. Hence the name.
But I am also pretty sure that I like it just as much as this years Halloween bundle quilt… SPIDERWEB! Same pattern, different colors!
But ofcourse we had way too many good leftovers and so we created a second quilt with what we stil had in the bundle….
And as promised to those of you who purchased the kit [we are making up more this week for those of you still interested], here is the info on the HALLOWEEN CHECKERBOARDS quilt, the second quilt from the bundle…
CLICK HERE for the Checkerboard Instructions in a PDF. The fnished size can be up to 58" x 66"… a perfect lap throw that can be whipped up so fast you could have it done this season!

Talk to you soon. I am going back to pattern editing and sample making. Up this week, a little friend to join some of our other creatures :-)!

I love those soft creamy orangey peach fabrics. I’ll have to look for some.

I agree, too many hexagons! Love the strip idea, just use a jelly roll! The stars are really nice! We have a touch of coooler weather here in Alabama for the first day of Autumn,
Your bolts of Somerset arrived at my local quilt shop today, Front Porch Quilt Shoppe, really nice. I love the touch of gray, and then the brighter greens and orange. Hopefully the pre-cuts are in the next box!
I will always love your corals and peach the best!
When will our thread box arrive?
