Fun Halloween quilts: Haunted Houses

There is not a witch, ghost, or pumpkin in this quilt.... but it is one of the cutest Halloween quilts we've seen ! Amber Johnson set her collection of Halloween fabrics into "haunted houses" - and each one is different. The charcoal grays provide a ghostly backdrop for the oranges of the houses. The clever embellishments include a crescent moon; spiderweb quilting; and black pom-poms.

In keeping with the Halloween theme, Amber Johnson hung a yellow polka-dotted moon over one of the houses; check out the blanket stitching...

The quilted spiderweb design is perfect for the Halloween theme (the quilting was done by Kayleen Parry in Lehi, Utah). Finally, Amber sewed fuzzy black pom-poms into the binding, as shown below.

For more information on the quilt and the design, check out the original Haunted House post at Amber's blog.

  1. If you keep this up, I will have to make something for halloween too and it isn't even October yet!
    A friend sent me two pieces of halloween fabrics. I'm ssure before you are through I will have an idea of what to make (or have too go buy more fabric to go with it.)

  2. Precioso Quilt!!!! Gracias por permitirme participar en el lindo sorteo y felicitaciones a las ganadoras!!! Un abrazo desde Argentina

  3. I like this quilt, a simple pattern which has been enhanced with the quilting and the choice of colours, plus the little added extras.
