Hi Quilting Friends,
We’re SEW excited to share our new Halloween quilt design with you today. This year’s quilt pattern is a sampler, with a twist, because each block is, well, wonky. Have a look!
Our “Wonky Sampler” includes nine unique pieced blocks, all surrounded by film strip sashing and borders. Sharon used scraps from our extensive Halloween fabric stash to create the blocks. The sashing is made with solid black fabric and a bright orange print.
The “Wonky Churn Dash” block combines foundation piecing and precision piecing. The center square is a great spot to feature a fussy-cut section of your favorite Halloween print.
We used the “Wonky Churn Dash” block in last year’s “Something Spooky” Halloween quilt design, pictured above.
The “Wonky Flying Goose” block is completely foundation pieced, with just two contrasting “goose” fabrics and a background fabric. The geese are wonky, but they still somehow manage to fly in formation.
The “Wonky House” block can be embellished with embroidered window panes and a button doorknob. Everything is just a little bit crooked in this fun wonky house. I couldn’t help thinking of the nursery rhyme as I stitched this block!
“There was a crooked man who walked a crooked mile. He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked style. He bought a crooked cat who caught a crooked mouse, and they all lived together in a little crooked house.”
The “Wonky Log Cabin” is a great block for featuring several different prints, one on each of the wonky quadrilaterals.
We used this block in our “Trick or Treat” Halloween quilt pattern, and decided to include it in our sampler too!
Our “Wonky Pumpkin” is made with a variety of orange scraps to make the perfect misshapen fruit. It would be easy to add some appliqued leaves and embroidered vines to enhance the pumpkin, if one desired.
The “Wonky Shack” looks a bit scary, with its high windows and crooked doorway. Use your imagination to see that the shack looks just a little bit like a spooky face, a warning to all who dare to enter. . .
The “Wonky Spiral” is a modified log cabin with just two contrasting fabrics. This easy block would be great on its own for a fun and scrappy quilt.
The “Wonky Square in Square” is another great block for featuring a fussy-cut motif from your fabric. It is important to have lots of contrast between the squares as you stitch this one.
The “Wonky Star” has foundation pieced star points, with a nice center square for another fussy-cut fabic motif. We used the star block in our “Halloween Spooktacular” quilt, pictured below.
