Another Soon To Be Unfinished Project

I'd like to introduce Vintage Trick or Treat by Crabapple Hill. But I'm also calling it my next unfinished project. I'm great about starting projects......but I'm not always so great at finishing them! Please tell me I'm not the only "Queen of Unfinished Projects" out there? I'm trying to improve. I really am! Anyway, I fell in love with this quilt at Houston Quilt Market last fall and I tried to resist its charms. But once the mornings started getting cooler.....and people started talking about pumpkins.....and PetSmart started putting out doggie Halloween costumes.....well, I just couldn't resist anymore. I love cute, vintage Halloween stuff and I just HAD to have this.
I absolutely LOVE gathering supplies for a project and I found the perfect fabrics for this quilt. I'm using the Spooktacular Orange Scroll for the inner and outer border. It matches the bright orange DMC floss colors perfectly!
And I'm using White Lotta Dots by Lakehouse for the pieced blocks in the corners.....
I'm also using the whites and blacks from a Spooktacular Jelly Roll. I'm going to cut them up into the tiny squares that are part of the checkerboard inner border and outer pieced blocks. I also added a few black fabrics from my stash to mix it up a little bit.
And I'm using White Swirls by Moda for the embroidery background. This fabric is actually a pure white on white. It looks kinda light grey on the computer screen. But I promise you, it's white!
And did you notice all of the bright, vibrant, juicy DMC floss colors used in this quilt? It's total eye candy!

I have about a 0% chance of getting this done in time for Halloween this year. But that's not gonna stop me! Fall is in the air and I must do something Autumn-y right now!

Happy Sewing,

What great fabrics you have chosen for this project. I saw this hanging at a LQS and fell in love with it too. I just have too many UFO's and USO's so I had to pass. I will live vicariously through you and watch it made. Have fun!
