I've had these jelly rolls of Zen Chic's new modern background fabrics on my shelf since Quilt Market...and I love them, but I had no idea what to do with them. I've had the itch to make a Halloween quilt, but I don't need another Halloween quilt...so this is kind of an un-Halloween quilt. Let's see how many times I can say Halloween in one sentence shall we? ;)
I literally get a little bit of anxiety when I unroll a jelly roll. I've tried to roll them back up and make them as pretty as they came...not possible! Don't even get me started on opening a Fat Quarter Bundle!
I started making blocks with a rough plan. A few of the blocks I love, and a few look pretty blah...
...but all together I kind-a love it!
I'm going add a colorful binding to liven things up a bit....and I love that I can leave this "Halloween" quilt out all year long!
The fabrics are from Zen Chic for Moda. The light (Paper) fabrics are available now at quilt shops (or here online), and it looks like the dark fabrics in this collection (Ink) will be out this week (also found here).
