The Halloween Medallion Quilt - Finally Finished!

Only took four years, but my Halloween Medallion quilt is finally finished! Ha!

Those of you who have been around for a minute might recognize bits of this quilt. I started it in 2015, all based around that Mr Chillingsworth panel in the center that my then three year old son picked out on a tag along trip to the fabric store. After drawing up a little medallion quilt design to go around him, it was time to put my hoarded stash of spooky halloween fabrics to good use!

To make it extra fun, and to help motivate me to finish the quilt in time for Halloween (ha!) I published all the instructions and patterns for the four medallion rows to the blog as a free pattern sew along. And I am SO pleased to say that if you check the #HalloweenMedallion tag on Instagram, you will see some fabulous spooky quilts!

The sew along finished, I found out I was pregnant, and life, morning sickness, and then little miss baby sister got in the way. It ended up being the family joke with my husband, that every October for the past couple years I've pulled out this quilt to work on it, and then every November put it right back... But not this time! No sir!!

Last year I finally sewed the top all together (seriously, what is it about that last row that is always so hard to finish!) so this year I pieced a quick backing, basted, and quilted that stinker up! I still had some black and white scrappy binding left over from the Fussy Cut Sampler quilt I just finished, so all I had to do was make a little more binding and sew it on. A couple nights of snuggly spooky hand sewing to get the binding finished and oh my goodness finally! It's done!

If you would like to sew up your own Halloween Medallion quilt, all you need is a spooky panel or some patchwork cut to size, the instructions linked in all the posts below, and four years of your life. TOTALLY kidding! For most sane humans, it should easily be finished in four weeks, perfect time for Hallow's Eve snuggles!

This really was such a fun quilt to make, and it has been even more fun having it out and done and available for snuggling. It has all the features of my favorite kind of quilt - super scrappy, with lots of hidden crazy fabrics to look at, and a simple color scheme.
