I LOVE autumn and especially Halloween. Below was Halloween in my old home!!

So, I have made LOTS of Halloween dolls and decor and quilts over the years…

I fell in love with Kelly’s postage stamp quilt on her blog, Charming Chatter, and decided to use up those scraps to make a Halloween postage stamp quilt.

I completely emptied that bin of smaller scraps and used some of the many Halloween fat quarters I’ve collected to cut lots and lots

and lots of 2” squares.

And I’m sewing the squares into 16 patch blocks which will finish at 6”.  I’ve got about 30 sewn up so far…
