My son gave me these 10 fat quarters of Halloween fabric which I really like, but I need help choosing a pattern!! I'd like to use some of each fabric in the quilt. I haven't been quilting long enough to know which patterns are suitable for 10 fat quarters so please help me by suggesting patterns! Thanks!
Barbara. Do you have Pinterest? If so you can search for Halloween Quilt Patterns that are fat quarter friendly. I'm not too much of a Halloween buff so I don't know of any.
Thanks, Donna. I'm not signed up on Pinterest, but I will try to check it out. I'm hoping someone will know of a pattern that will work well with these fabrics.

Thanks Kris! I will check these websites also. If I find any I will post them to get opinions. I'm still hopeful someone will know of a pattern by name that will look good with Halloween fabric!!
You're welcome Barbara. Any pattern will work as long as you have enough fabric. You can supplement what you have with coordinating colours even if they're not halloween specific.
Thanks! I searched online and found the one below. It was actually in one of Fons and Porters magazines and I found it in my pile of magazines!! The pattern uses 7 fat quarters plus other fabrics so I wouldn't be able to use all 10 fat quarters, but I do like this pattern. What do you think of this pattern?
That looks great Barbara. I like it.
Thanks, Kris. I would really like a bigger quilt so I will look a little more. If I don't find anything else this may be the one. :)
You can use all the fabric you have in that quilt. Just add extra boarders around the edge. You could also square off the squares ( a square inside a square) and use the extra fabric to add other blocks.
I might be confusing you, maybe someone can state better what I am trying to say...or maybe I can find a picture...I will look.
I found this link to something that looks like I am trying to state.
Thanks, zoetc49! I understand what you mean and I appreciate you including the link. These are things I didn't think of because I don't yet have the experience many of you do. I learn something new every day on QCA!!
