Simple Fabric Folding for Halloween: 12 Fun Quilts and Projects


Simple Fabric Folding for Halloweenby Liz Aneloski
C&T Publishing, 2005. 64 pages, list price $19.95

When it comes to holiday quilting projects, there's no such thing as getting started too early, and with October just days away, it's time to pick up Liz Aneloski's Simple Fabric Folding for Halloween. Adopting the manner of her chosen holiday, Liz eschews cheery chatter and gets straight down to business. The opening pages introduce the reader to the folded-fabric building blocks and the remainder of the book is stuffed with projects that combine the folding techniques. Our favorite is the Haunted House which has doors that open to reveal the monsters who reside there, but the Spiders Countdown Calendar (an Advent calendar for the black-hearted) is a close second. It might have been nice to get even a little bit of conversational text from the author about her designs, but the large color photos of her work speak volumes. A nice extra: the last page contains specific part numbers and online sources for the spooky buttons and other hard-to-find ornaments shown in Aneloski's example projects.

Get it discounted at Amazon.com!
