Halloween Figs Quilt Sew Along is a 12 month block of the month program that began in July, 2019. The Halloween Figs fabric from Fig Tree & Co. designed by Joanna Figueroa and can be found at It is beautiful fabric! The MOST beautiful fall/Halloween collection I have ever seen. The orange tones are a lighter burnt orange that is so pleasing.

The example in the book uses All Hallow’s Eve by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda. Most of the fabrics in this collection sold out quickly. I scored a few orange and black prints, but decided to use the Witch’s Night Out Starter pack of Basics from Fat Quarter Shop. Pat Sloan is giving the suggested fabric choices using this starter pack as an option during the sew along.

My background fabric is Swiss Dots Cream on Cream Dots Yardage SKU# C600-01 that I also bought from the Fat Quarter Shop.

The Summer Moon Block of the Month, designed by Carrie Nelson is totally sold out at the However, you can still buy the book and use your own fabrics. Originally, there were 2 colorways … Moda Fabrics Lollipop Garden by Lella Boutique with Essential Dots Backgrounds and Later Alligator by Sandy Gervais with Modern Backgrounds Paper. I chose the Lollipop Garden vintage fabric because the modern was sold out by the time I clicked the add to cart button! I guess this is why we should never hesitate when buying fabric!!! 🙂

Anyway, I received the first month’s fabric and was so pleased with the colors and quality. This quilt is going to be a joy to construct.

Quilter's Planner Weekly Blocks

Quilter’s Planner Weekly Blocks

QP 2019 Weekly Blocks Sew Along

The bi-weekly blocks found in the Quilter’s Planner are simple 6 inch blocks that are an excellent primer for beginners.  Each block takes minimal scraps and can made as scrappy as you want.  I am choosing to use the same fabric as the Hexie Snowflake (above).

My original plan is to make 2 of each block and at the end of the year either make a twin size quilt to match the Hexie Snowflake OR maybe use these blocks for the backing and have a reversible quilt.  Stay tuned …
