It’s fall! That means pumpkin spice is everywhere and it’s almost Halloween—time to revisit the Epic Halloween Quilt-Along! You guys are still seriously crushing on it, so I thought I’d do a little roundup of some of the quilts you all have finished over the last year. It’s all still there if you missed the bandwagon the first time around!
It’s so much fun to look through all the unique color choices and block substitutions. Here are is a whole bunch of eye candy for you:
I did it, I did it. I finally finished my #epichalloweenqal top. Now I will either have to save up to have it quilted special, or learn how to long arm myself. This was such an awesome experience, and I learned so many techniques I previously was to scared to try. Thank you so much @flyingparrotquilts for hosting this.
It was a dark and stormy night…I mean afternoon…and it wasn't really stormy, it was actually pretty nice out… Anyway, I'm done with assembly! Making a trip to the fabric store tomorrow for borders, backing and binding. #epichalloweenqal #cottonandsteelboo #cottonandsteelfabric #cottonandsteelspellbound
Finally finished my #epichalloweenqal top!! This baby is 114" x 114" (slightly oversized king)!! I'm getting married on Halloween & LOVED @FLYINGPARROTQUILTS quilt so much, I just had to incorporate both into something really special! ♡♡ #spookyspiderpattern #midnightbitepattern #trickorsweetpattern #spookyeyes #ringofcoffins #ghastlies #variablepotionpattern #spellbound #Hallowedding #wedding #tildeathdouspart
If you are thinking of jumping on the bandwagon and making your own Epic Halloween Quilt, I thought I’d share a few patterns I’ve come across recently, in case you’d like to deviate from my layout as many of the quilts above did. If you’ve come across one you love or written one yourself, I’d love to hear about it!

Finally, if you make your own, go forth and enter it into shows! The original Epic Halloween Quilt has picked up several ribbons, and, based on the comments, judges seem to really enjoy the sampler take on the holiday and the non-traditional Halloween colors. It even took home a ribbon from the new fall Paducah show:
