I think 2023 is going to go down as the year of the Halloween quilt at Kitchen Table Quilting — I have never made this many! This this is my spooky take on the Stella Quilt pattern and it uses a new collection called Spooky 'n Witchy from Art Gallery Fabrics.
If this collection looks familiar to you, that's because this is the newest addition to a really fun Halloween series. I really enjoy when fabric companies offer a series like this because fabrics from different collections mix and match well. Last year I made a quilt using Spooky 'n Sweeter, and I have done a Quilt Ideas post for both Sweet 'n Spookier and Spooky 'n Witchy.
You can probably guess what I love about this collection: the pink and purple. I am so predictable. While purple does show up in Halloween decor, pink doesn't usually and the combination is just is even more rare. I love it.
Are you ready for this backing? It's a flannel print from the collection and you might notice that it is a color that doesn't appear in the quilt top. I was interested to see how it would look with the quilt and I think the colors work together wonderfully. Plus flannel as a quilt backing is just so snuggly.
For the quilting, I did evenly spaced vertical lines. I wanted something very minimal since there is a lot going on with the prints and it worked out great.
