Yeah, we have reached to the end of the Halloween Quilt free quilt-a-long with one of my favorite Online Fabric stores as the host, the Fat Quarter Shop! This one comes with the free pattern, so you can save them if you didn’t sew along this time round.

If you did join along, let me know how did you go? 

I love all the fun cute blocks we have to make this time round. FQS always have super cute patterns and their sew-a-long are a lot of fun to join in.

I started off with these fabrics from Stacy Iest Hsu Halloween Collection HERE and as for the background, I’m using a MODA grunge background named Olivenite HEREThe pattern calls for a purple background, but I thought I’ll do something a little different with a yucky mushy green.All of the fabric were sent by Fat Quarter Shop. 

You can use your stash, use your own choice of fabrics like I did or you can also get a Boo Crew Quilt Kit.

You can read more about the previous blocks in the previous post:

Week 4: The finish of the Boo Crew Quilt, a Free Halloween Quilt Pattern 

This week we’re finishing off the borders and quilting it of course! My favourite part of the quilting process.

Scrappy Border

I decided to make use of the leftover fabrics into a scrappy border which I absolutely love!!!

I cut 1.5″ strips and sew them all together in rows and then cut the the piece into 2″ patchwork strips. This comes together pretty quickly. 

The scrappy border brings all the colours of the blocks together and lifted them up against the mushy green.

The border also makes it more cute I think. What do you think?

Quilt Backing from Scraps and Leftovers

As for the backing, I cut some 2.5″ strips from the leftover and sew those together. I am currently obsessed in making a stripy backing like I did in my previous two quilts :  Jelly Roll Spinner and All the Trimmings Quilt.

I had two larger piece fabrics which I didn’t use for the quilt top. These were the orange dots and the grey web fabrics which were both 1/2 yards each. Both of these were utilised for the backing. I’m trying to use up what I have in hand when I make the backing.  

I have to say, I can see this will definitely not going to be the last time I am going to opt for a stripy backing. By doing this, we can get a fun two-sided quilt.

Backing like this is pretty easy to do especially for little quilts like these. No need to buy more fabrics for the backing, we can try and save more by using up our scraps.

I quilted this with a simple zigzag meander and it went together pretty quickly. It took about 2 hours to finish the quilting. I did the quilting 30 minutes at a time and made sure I have breaks in between the quilting session.

This is what I always tell others as well, when quilting on a domestic machine, please do take lots of break. It will get done. we just need to be patient. Pretty things don’t come together fast. They take time.

Quilt Label!

Of course, don’t forget to label your quilt! 

I am using one of the labels I made from Quilt Label Wizard. The label were pieced with a tiny border with the leftover strips from the border.

The label unit is pieced into the backing. by doing it this way, the label will be quilted together into the quilting stitches. 


I chose to machine bind it using the background fabricate ground the borders. Hand stitching the binding probably will get me better result with as I didn’t have the right colour thread for binding but I think it turned out fine. I try not to sweat or overthink stuff so that I can enjoy more of the things I love. 

What do you think of this fun Halloween Quilt?

3 Comments on A finish! Boo Crew Halloween Quilt Free Pattern

  1. That’s an adorable finish – I am quilting along too and will put it all together this week – I like the scrappy border and may give that some thought. Have a great day.

  2. I think it’s adorable! I Love the “mucky green” background. It really makes everything else pop.
