Make a Block or Two or the Full Quilt!
This wonderful sampler quilt is an entirely different take on quilts for the spooky season. It’s a sampler quilt that shines in color combinations other than the typical orange and black.
We’ve seen this amazing quilt before but only recently discovered that there’s a pattern available. Actually, there are patterns, as the quilt was presented as a quilt-along by Sylvia Schaefer from Flying Parrot Quilts.
Each of the blocks is a separate pattern and several are free. Instructions are provided at the end of the quilt-along for combining the blocks and finishing the quilt.
That makes this especially fun as you can do whatever you want with the blocks. Finish one as a mini quilt, combine several for a runner or table topper, or go ahead and collect all the blocks and make the full quilt.
Quilt by Cassandra Beaver. It won a ribbon at Paducah.

We love the inspired color combination that Sylvia chose. However, any color theme will be great in this quilt. You’ll find several examples to spark your creativity here
We must confess that our favorite block is the bat. It was designed by Nicole of Lily Ella Stitchery

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
