Halloween Quilt Using Scaredy Cat Fabric By Riley Blake Designs

Sewing anything Halloween related is always a thrill for me, but combining it with other things I like is definitely a "Wowzer" moment! "Scaredy Cat" fabric is from Riley Blake Designs and was designed by Amanda Niederhauser of Jedi Craft Girl. Amanda used to design for ThermOWeb and is amazing at anything she creates. 

ThermOWeb asked several of us designers to create a project using the "Scaredy Cat" fabric which was generously given to us by Riley Blake Designs, who I'm lucky enough to design projects for. Seriously, this is the best combo ever...Halloween, ThermOWeb, Riley Blake Designs, Crafter's Edge, and Amanda's fabric! Told you it was a "Wowzer" moment!

"Beware Black Cat" is loosely based off a famous vintage poster and was fun to create using "Scaredy Cat" fabric.

So much spooky and cute in this fabric!

Creepy Bunny is feeling the Halloween spirit with this quilt!


Making "Beware Black Cat" is really easy when you use the right products.



Heat n Bond Lite Iron-on Adhesive is easy to apply and works great for applique. Trace your design on the adhesive or use the EZ Print Lite Sheets that don't require tracing. Just run your designs through your inkjet printer.



Oliso makes an awesome iron that's easy to love and easy to use!



The Cat Grid Orange makes a bold background for the "sun" behind the black cat.


Scaredy Cat White Shapes looks very cool behind all the applique!


Look at this Scaredy Cat Gray face!


Crafter's Edge has a lot of great fabric dies to help with creating your sewing projects. "Beware Black Cat" has HSTs that were easy to make with their Half Square Triangles with dog eared corners.


The Crossover II is easy to use with the dies, but you can also use your Accuquilt with the dies because there is an adapter available. The triangles come in several sizes in one package, so it's easy to have just the right die for the job.



What's really fun with the fabric dies is the ability to fussy cut designs, like this cat. 



The corners are dog eared so it makes it easy to match ends and there's very little clipping or trimming needed.


The fabric die makes a perfect HST that's ready to add to a quilt.



Assembling a quilt without pins is really quick when you use Spray n Bond Basting Adhesive


You can find the pattern for "Beware Black Cat" HERE.

Love your quilt. Isn't the image from le chat noire or something like that? The fabrics are fun too. Lucky lady playing with those fun prints.

Your creative mind blows me away at times. AND your creepy bunny still gives me the creeps.

That is a fun quilt for Halloween and I like the idea of using fusible with machine appliqué.
