I try to decorate our mantle for each season/holiday and that includes changing the mini quilt above it. For my Halloween mantle I decided I didn't have an appropriate mini quilt so whipped this one up! The free 12 inch block pattern is from Center Street Quilts and I added 3.5 inch borders of some OG Cotton + Steel to get it to around 18 inches.  



I wanted to get it up on the wall fast so just did a simple outline/echo (or "ghost" if you will. Haha, I'll show myself out!) line of stitching around the ghost with my walking foot for the quilting. A quick stitched binding and it was up on my wall!

My mantle all together!



This designer has a lot of great patterns,  (many free ones included) and I am definitely making the pumpkin and cat block for my Thanksgiving mini!

 Your mantel is so festive and fun. The quilt block is adorable and I love that you didn't go with a plain white for the ghost.

Thanks! I just had a small rectangle of the spiderweb fabric and wasn't sure it would be enough but I squeaked it out!!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
