Seven Spooky Quilt Machine Quilting Motifs-FREE Tutorials!

Lori Kennedy Quilts, Halloween MotifsGood Morning, Quilters!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!  I have such happy memories of trick or treating as a child and when my kids were younger!  I LOVE to all the motif possibilities too!

Okay…I LOVE candy!  Especially Tootsie Rolls, Smarties, Licorice, Mounds Bars, Snickers, Milk Duds….

It’s better to keep my hands busy quilting!

Here is a round-up of Halloween motifs we’ve worked on over the last several years

Grab a caramel apple, turn on Arsenic and Old Lace, and treat yourself to a little doodling and quilting!

The Spider Web

The Spooky Spider

Candy Corn

The Spooky Bat

Jack-o-Lantern

The Perfect Pumpkin

Sweet Candy

May YOUR Halloween be Spooky (but not too spooky)!

This year, I mixed it up by using different fabrics and Aurifil wool thread.  I used a 90 Topstitch needle and I LOVE this easy way to add a bold border motif.
