One Monthly Goal

There is nothing on my design wall this week as I am trying to focus on finishing.

My October goal is to finish my Bats and Boos mystery quilt in time for Halloween. The quilt is now pin basted and it's ready to quilt.

One of the steps I enjoy most about machine quilting is picking out the thread colours. I never quilt with just one colour - why use only 1 colour, when there's a whole thread box with a beautiful range of colours?!?

Here are the threads that I'm planning to use for this project. Black for the bats, gold for some of the  pumpkins, orange for the dark pumpkins and the bobbin, and grey for the background. Okay... now I need to decide what designs to stitch.

Linking up to One Monthly Goal


  1. A perfect UFO to work on in October! So fun to use several thread colours too! I’m working on quilting a UFO this month too but I’m only using two thread colours.

  2. Those threads will look nice for the quilting. Did you make the Bats and Boos as released or did you add anything to it? It looked like a cute project but I didn't participate in this one.

  3. A great choice for your October goal. I'm trying to build up my tread collection as there are such gorgeous colours that it's a shame not to use them when quilting.

  4. Waiting for the last of my fabrics and I am going to make this one and have it done (LOL) by my Halloween Birthday! Yea. Yours is looking great!
