    Just wondering what people have done with their Halloween fabrics.

    Is it mostly tabletop decor, and maybe small wall quilts?

    Or did you have other ideas?

    Or maybe you don't have any Halloween fabric at all?

    I've made a Halloween wallhanging. I think just the outer border was actually Halloween fabric.

    I have a very ugly front door (long story, DH tried to "fix" it) so I make door hangings for every month and season. I don't buy seasonal fabrics often, but when I do it's always for something to hide my door.

    table top decor, for sure. I have tons of the stuff, but I haven't used much of it yet.

    I might have made trick or treat bags out of it for the kids when they were little, too.

    It ends up in nearly everything I do. The quilt in my avatar includes a skeleton print, I'm working on an Ohio Star with Halloween fabrics. I just (literally, 2 days ago) bought 2 yards of black Cheshire Cat smile fabric because it looked Halloweeny...Rule of thumb, if I find it, some of it goes home with me...

    I made a table topper, lap quilt for the couch, and placemats (my husband really loves Halloween). This year I will probably make a wallhanging.

    I have some, but have never used any of it. Good thing I don't have a lot of it. LOL

    I made place mats. Other than that, I don't think I have done much with it!

    I have made a wallhanging from some Halloween fabrics. Some were just colored prints that worked with the theme. Let me see if a picture will attach

    You could make a Holloween quilt using Amy Butler's free lotus brick pattern. It would look good with holloween themes and maybe some oraange, black and green pom-poms on each side. I made a Christmas quilt with a bunch of FQs using this pattern and it looks nice.
