I was very lucky to snag a beautiful kit of cream, orange and black fabric from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. recently. The kits were in very limited supply and appear to have sold out, but don't despair, you can still put together these fabrics on your own, with a little effort. If you don't have the energy for that, keep checking the Miss Rosie website and see if she puts out any more kits.
If you go to Quiltshops.com (a fabric search engine) and look for orange fabrics from The Boo Crew (by Sweetwater) and Honeysweet (by Fig Tree), plus black and gray fabrics from Little Black Dress II, plus fill in with some Essential Dots and fabrics from your stash you can absolutely put together the required yardage to make the beautiful quilt pattern Lucy, designed by Carrie Nelson. You only need 8 orange fat quarters and 10 black/gray fatquarters. (Of course more is better). The background is a subtle polka dot from Minick and Simpson's Midwinter Reds collection. It is all still available with a bit of looking. You can get the pattern in a pdf version from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. and be stitching away in no time. Come on, you know you want a Halloween quilt. And if you don't (seriously?), just imagine how amazing this quilt would look in assorted multicolored scraps from your stash.
The quilt is made by strip piecing and goes together super fast. I got my kit on Wednesday and got the fabric cut out and strips sewn together
and my strip sets all cut into sections
and about a dozen of the 61 checkerboard blocks sewn in one day!
I put a new book on my iPod, and spent a delightful day puttering all on my own in the sewing room. Heaven! I plan on repeating the experience today.
