How They Shine featuring Hey Boo!!!

 Today I am thrilled to be sharing my newest quilt finish!!!  I never get tired of making star quilts and I just love making my How They Shine quilt pattern ;)   I love the alternating of prints and backgrounds in the two blocks that create so many awesome secondary designs.   I figured it would be perfect for a new Halloween Quilt!!  

I don't make a lot of Halloween quilts, because honestly, I don't like "Scary Halloween".  But this new Hey Boo line by Lella Boutique for Moda is so my kind of Halloween.   Cute Pumpkins, Adorable Ghosts, and awesome Pinks, Purples, and Greens added to the traditional Black and Orange!!!  I knew as soon as I saw Hey Boo that I had to make a quilt with it!!!  Hey Boo is truly just  Happy Halloween!!!  

And while How They Shine  might look a little intense, it truly is a super fun and easy quilt to make with basic quilting techniques.   A few No-Waste Flying Geese, and some stitch and flip corners and you can whip these blocks up in no time.   And truly, the secondary diamonds created when Block A and B come together are just so fun :)  It really is a design that would work great for any Holiday, whether it be Halloween, Christmas, or 4th of July!!!  

And when it came time to quilt mine, I tried something new to me.  I started with just loose wavy lines running down the length of the quilt but I spaced them out a bit more than normal.   Then I went back and added wavy loop de loop lines between the wavy lines.   I think it just adds such a fun touch of whimsy to the design.   And I just love it!!  I have a feeling I will be doing this again soon ;)  

 And like all of my Happy Quilting patterns,  the How They Shine Pattern has multiple size options, so you can make whatever size you like. This is the Picnic size that finishes at 80" x 80", but you can make it from a baby size all the way to a queen size ;)   How They Shine is  Fat Quarter Friendly, so you just need to grab a Bundle and some background fabric (I used the super happy Ghost Practical Magic Stars)  and get Happy Quilting!! 

And that is my newest How They Shine quilt! I hope you have enjoyed this post and consider making your own How They Shine Quilt!!! And if you do, I would love to see them!
