Halloween Sparkly Stars Quilt - HQM Quilt 4 (And FREE PDF Pattern)

It's the end of Week 4 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and after sharing this quilt on Thursday, I knew exactly what quilt I wanted to finish up this week!!!   I started today's quilt back in 2019and it has been waiting to be finished for some time.   So without further ado . . . here is Halloween Sparkly Stars and it because I have made it a few times, it also has a free step by step tutorial as well as a FREE PDF Pattern with 6 size options!!!   

Sparkly Stars is such a fun and easy quilt to make. I call it "Sparkly" because the points of the stars overlap, so you don't have to worry about matching any points. Each Fat Quarter makes a Block Star and a Block Background.  And with the Free Sparkly Stars Pattern you can choose to make just the size you want!!  This is the twin size :)  

Sparkly Stars is Fat Quarter Friendly, making it easy to grab a FQ Bundle and get stitching right away.  I actually bought this FQB of Halloween Magic by Bella Blvd. for Riley Blake Designs clear back in 2015 at one of my first quilt markets.   I loved that it was "cute" Halloween :)  But really, any FQ Bundle would look good in this design.  I have now made Sparkly Stars winter themed, monochromatic, and Halloween, and I have 4th of July and Christmas added to the list to make ;)  

And when it came time to quilt it, I decided to take advantage of the face that all the blocks are 9 patches.   And that makes it super easy to do a wavy orange peel.   I used a medium grey so it would blend well with the black and the prints, and I just love how it gives the effect of spider webs, but not in a scary way :)   And it makes for some amazing texture, so fun!!! 

 And now that it is complete, it has been folded up in the Holiday quilts.   Here is hoping I remember to pull it out at Halloween :)  If you haven't figured out by now, Halloween is not my favorite.  I don't mind the cute part of Halloween, but I am really not a fan of all the scary stuff.   So ya, this is pretty much the first Halloween quilt that I have made and plan to keep :)  

And that is Quilt #4 - Halloween Sparkly Stars ;)  4 Down and only 22 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :) 

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!!
