"Lucky" Halloween quilt WIP

Hi quilting friends! I just realized I've hit over 101,000 page views on my blog! So exciting to be in the 6 digits. Thanks for being here with me!

Some of you told me you would like to see more quilts in progress so with that in mind here is what I'm working on this week. My "Lucky" Halloween quilt. (Pattern is "Lucky" by Thimble Blossoms.)


This is one of those projects that gets stalled and sits because it can get a bit tiresome as you can imagine with all those half square triangles. Trimming them nearly killed me! ;) Once you get through that though things start to speed up a bit. I got all 12 blocks put together yesterday.


Two rows were finished last night (don't mind my toes please) and I have two rows to go! The end is in sight!

What about you? What are you working on this week?

  1. Love how this is turning out. I'm trying to get caught up on some things I didn't get done in July. I just finished trimming 16 - 2 1/2" hsts, so I know exactly how you feel. I did give my head a good shake, lol.

    1. Thank you Ioleen! :) The trimming is the most difficult part to get through I find but it's so worth it in the end when all the points line up.

  2. I love the great colors. I need to really challenge myself to step out there and put different colors together that I don't use or different patterns that aren't part of a collection. It's so easy to get stuck in that rut!

    1. I do the same thing Andrea. :) I can't take the credit on this one as this is a Sweetwater collection called "Boo Crew" but I do enjoy putting together my own color choices too. It's so easy though when the designers do it for us, isn't it?
