Boos and Ghouls Introduction {Quilt Along}

Have I ever told you that my favorite season is Fall? Or that my favorite month is October? Being here in Texas, we don't get that full flavored Autumn season like I experienced growing up in Missouri. And to be honest, it makes me kind of homesick.

So, naturally I typically ignore all things Fall in an effort to keep my homesickness at bay. (Have I told you that my go to defense mechanism seems to be act like an Ostrich?!)

This year, I've decided, for better or for worse to embrace All The Fall. And I'm starting with a fun quilt along!

With this mini quilt along, I will show you how to make these two mini quilts. One is a boy ghost and the other is a girl ghost. Get it, Boos & Ghouls? (I do love a good (or bad) pun!) Aren't they cute with their little spooky selves?

The minis are oh-so-easy and short and sweet. I plan on posting every Monday with the hopes of having the mini quilts finished JUST in time for my favorite month, October!

Here's the schedule:

September 1st - Introduction
September 8th - Fabric Stacks and Cutting Instructions
September 15 - Piecing the Eyes and Half Square Triangles
September 22 - Assembly
September 29 - Finishing and Show Off

For each post I'll also host a link-up party so you can join in on the fun via your own blog or instagram (#boosandghouls).

I'll be back next week to show you my fabrics and share the cutting instructions with you. I hope you'll join in!


  1. Um how stinking cute are they!! I might have to make em into pillows. :)

  2. Oh my gosh! So cute! I so want to do this even though I most definitely do not have time. I will try anyway.

  3. Loving this, and I fixed my link above so it leads to something. Sorry.

  4. I'm new to quilting, and look forward to seeing these cuties come together! Thank you!


It'd be ever so awesome if you left a comment. I (try) to reply to each one. Thank you!
