Halloween Series - Barn Bat Mini Quilt

Brrr! Has the cold front hit where you live yet? I am sitting here under a quilt in my living room...during the day and loving it!

For today's Halloween Series post I am sharing a mini quilt I recently made using a fabulous tutorial on Elizabeth Hartman's Blog Oh Fransson! - Barn Bats Block Tutorial. You may know her from her blog or from her amazing quilting books: Modern Patchwork & The Practical Guide to Patchwork.

The fabric used for the Barn Bat Mini Quilt:

  • Timeless Treasures Soho Solids in Black
  • Timeless Treasures Bats in White, Orange and Purple
  • Robert Kaufman Clown Stripe in Black and White


I used a straight line quilting technique and did a grid pattern over the entire mini quilt, I love the texture a good grid pattern makes on a quilt.
