Rest in Pieces is another fun Halloween collection by Jenni Calo, this time with a rustic feel. Vintage Churn Dash and Four-Patch Fall, two quilts from the Connecting Threads archives, show the versatility of the collection.
Vintage Churn Dash
Vintage Churn Dash, 55” square, highlights large squares of the Ghosts & Ghouls print in two colorways alternating with scrappy Churn Dash blocks.
For those intimidated by scrappy quilts, rest assured, there is some “planned randomness” to guide color placement. The piecing of the blocks is fairly simple with some One-Patch, Rail Fence, and half-square triangle units. The dogtooth border is a bit more of a challenge but the pieces are on the large side so it is a good opportunity to try this type of piecing. The finished quilt has a traditional, autumnal feel that celebrates Halloween in a subtle way.
Four-Patch Fall Quilt
Four-Patch Fall, 60” x 72”, reflects the colors of autumn. The fabrics are from the Rest in Pieces and Quilter's Candy collections.
The piecing couldn’t be much simpler; the quilt consists of larger and smaller Four-Patch blocks.
