I have never been so excited to share something! My Skull Quilt Pattern is finished and is listed in my etsy shop as an instant downloadable PDF!

This is my very first quilt pattern and I'm really hoping you all enjoy it and all the one's that come after!

Besides being a wonderful Halloween quilt, this design in versatile eough that it will make a very cool boy quilt for any age, as well as being perfect for our music-loving rocker girls!

This bold and fun pixelated, skull quilt pattern is made using simple patchwork and HST (half square triangle) techniques, includes fabric requirements // measurements // instructions for making a generous throw size skull quilt measuring 62" x 84"

15-page PDF pattern includes:

- Fabric Requirements and Cutting Instructions
- HST and Layout Diagrams

Now that all that hard work is done, I'm treating myself with a new quilt finish -- My Modern Tsuru Sampler just came back from Sew Shabby Quilting and looks better than I could have ever imaged!

  6. Congratulations on your first pattern! It's about time you started charging ;c) I have loved all your tutorials but it's a business for you and with your talents you should be charging. I will be shopping and buying patterns from your store for sure. You've been SO generous over time with sharing, so I thank you for that. I've always wondered why you didn't charge for them. Good luck on this new venture. You will be amazing. I love following you and watching what you do next. You've definitely been an inspiration to me.

  16. Hi Maureen, Do you still quilt on a Janome? I recently bought a Janome 8200 and I have a terrible time FMQ on it. Do you have any tips?

    1. Hi Vickie! I only do FMQ on my small sketch stitch art pieces. It's something I want to improve on, but am loving the special work that Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting and Angela Walters have done on my quilts. I wish I could be more helpful!

  18. Just bought your skull quilt download and it was so easy. I have been searching for months now for a quilt pattern for a friend of mine and there wasn't anything that caught my eye. Then I saw on Facebook your finished skull quilt. Your quilt was EXACTLY what my friend would love, in fact you could say it screamed her name. LOL! I just printed it out and can't wait to get it started. As a stay at home mother myself I can't think of anything I love more than quilting and being home for my children. Thank you again so very much Maureen. Michelle

  20. It's so beautiful, I didn't even notice it was a skull at first!
    I'm running through your semi-finished-ish quilts now, and pretty much pinning every one of them. You have a *great* eye for pattern!
