Still GO!-ing Over Here!!

Yogi and I spent a good part of the day in my sewing room working on my Halloween tumbler quilt cut out entirely last week on my Accuquilt Go!


Very easy to assemble! 


Sew the tumblers into rows.


Then sew the rows together!


Just doesn’t get any easier!!


When it was all sewn together, I just trimmed the side to be straight with a ruler!


This is the cool fabric I am using for the backing.  When I saw it online last year, I just HAD to have it!  One of our favorite old Halloween cartoons is “The Halloween Tree” based on a Ray Bradbury book.

It explains all about Halloween and how it came to involve witches and skeletons and monsters…very cool!!  My students through the years always loved that movie, too!  So the backing fabric reminds me of years of bringing up my sons and students at Halloween time!


I pinned the top and batting together and it is ready to be quilted!!  Hopefully tomorrow!!


Guess what Yogi was doing while I was sewing?




  1. It looks just great too. I love Halloween.

  2. So jealous, wish I had a go to cut out my shapes :) This looks fantastic!

  3. What a great quilt it's going to be! That backing fabric is terrific! Yogi did a great job supervising o:)

  4. Wow! Way to sew! Looks like Yogi got a good nap. :-)

  5. What a great way to make a quick Halloween quilt. I've had a Halloween quilt on my to-do list for a while. I'll have to break out the die! This hot weather really takes a lot out of the puppies and kitties. My cats just act like they are all in. I feel sorry for those outdoor animals.

  6. What a fabulous collection of Halloween fabrics - they look fantastic as tumblers, it's going to be a great quilt.

  7. You didn't waste any time getting this quilt on the longarm! Yogi is so cute. Is he always so good about laying in his bed or does he wander around?

  8. I'm going to love this quilt! blessings, marlene

  9. Temptation! First, you show fabulous photos of Halloween fabric using the large tumbler die. Yesterday, my friend Jane worked on her version of a tumbler die quilt using Halloween fabrics. I have a stash of Halloween fabrics. Jane offered to let me use her studio cutter to cut my stash. I see a new quilt in my future.

    One of my favorite Halloween stories is The Hallo-weiner by Dav Pilkey. Have a wonderful day!

  10. Happy to see someone else posting about working on a Halloween quilt (I shared my blocks today too). I really enjoy the fall and colors of that season. Wanted a quilt to hang this year so dug in my stash early.


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
