The haunted house pattern has all the bits of Halloween you love- bats, ghosts, tombstones, full moon, cats, eerie tree, broken fence with forbidding signs. There is even an extra page of Halloween appliques to customize your haunted house!
This quilt is constructed like a blend of painting and cut and paste. First you prepare the canvas- the background of the quilt top. Then you cut out all the pieces of the picture and arrange them on the top. Then you assemble the three layers of the quilt, pin the appliques and secure them with stitches. Lastly, sew all around the edges of the quilt and snip the edge. It sounds easy, and it is easy, even for a beginner.
The applique is an easy raw edge method and the binding is a quick ruffled edge. When the quilt is washed and dried the edges of the appliques curl and fray to the stitched edge for a relaxed style.
Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible. There are numbered steps and many photographs to guide you. The pattern pieces are full size designed to be printed from standard computer paper. There are over 50 applique pieces in this quilt.
