When I first saw the fabric line called Boo! To You! by Riley Blake Fabrics (fast becoming my favorite fabric producer) I instantly thought countdown calendar. The middle black and gray dot is just a fat quarter, I printed off "Halloween Countdown" from a font on my computer and stitched it with a back stitch and DMC floss, then added a border and Velcro to hold the little spooks on the quilt. I ironed Pellon fusible fleece on the back of the fabric with the little spooks and then cut around each one.
My daughter helped me out a lot too by cutting out the little spooks. She's at school right now and I can't wait for her to come home so I can show her our little quilt all finished waiting for the first day in October.
P.S. I just found THIS other incredibly cute Halloween Countdown quilt using the SAME fabric on the Riley Blake Blog! Kind of wish I would have found this before I began mine, but it's nice to have something straight from my own head finished. I'm thinking now of making the same quilt only using the Colorful Christmas line!
