Day of The Dead Quilt #myquiltcouldlivehere

I’ve never been much into Halloween. But a few years ago, I found this skeleton toile by Alexander Henry, I immediately wanted to make a Halloween/Day of The Dead-themed quilt.
I can’t believe I made a themed quilt!

It was a pretty simple pattern I made up as I went along. I “snowballed” square blocks with candy corn and licorice inspired solids. I had just finished the manuscript for my first book and it was the perfect, mindless chain piecing that was just what I needed at the time.

I wanted a Halloween quilt that would blend into our home and bring in the change of the season without screaming Halloween. I think this does it. Because its predominantly black and white, I doesn’t really clash with anything.
