I do not remember the name of this pattern.  I only have some of the pattern pages with the unfinished top.  This has been a UFO for some time.  I did not want to add the border that the pattern designer used (appliqued bats).  I went to see the AQS show in Paducah with my sister. That was a wonderful adventure.  While there we went to a quilt shop at some farm in the area.  The owner of the shop had a quilt hanging that was vertical strips of chevrons made from all black fabrics.  The owner explained to me that she had designed this quilt for a fabric company to show off one of their lines.  I remember thinking I would love that job and wondering how one would get a job like that.   Anyway....back to my quilt....I remember thinking that  on the perimeter I did not want appliqued black bats on light backgrounds- I would rather have quilted ones on black chevrons.  My only problem was  how to make the corners????  I think I have my solution.  My May OMG will be to piece the border for this quilt. 


  1. That is a great idea. I love the candy corn. Not a real fan of real candy corn tho' (giggle)

  2. Fun halloween quilt. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project!
