Celebrate the spooky holiday with 29 free quilt block patterns
The first Halloween I can remember, Minnesota had a blizzard for the history books. Over the next four days, snowfall accumulated to an unbelievable 37 inches.
That night, my brother and sisters and I got dressed up in our costumes, put our winter coats, snow pants, boots, hats and mittens on OVER the costumes, and waded out onto unshoveled sidewalks.
Needless to say, our candy haul was nothing to brag about.
Years of bitter cold Halloween nights have led me to embrace a more cozy (read "indoor") Halloween.
Think of chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven, Garfield's Halloween Adventure on the television, and piles of quilts and dogs on the couch.
So the quilt block I've designed for #QuiltBlockMania is a nervous little kitty who could really use a cuddle. Download this pattern for free and make your own adorable Halloween quilt block.
