    Connecting Threads still has a lot of fabric 50% off. You could probably find colors for the pattern.

    i'm a die-hard contrarian.

    i wouldn't be willing to spend that much money on something hundreds of others will have on their beds, too.

    i'd buy the pattern; use my own fabric selections; and then fiddle with the design just enough to make it uniquely mine. (while giving ALL due credit to the original designer, of course.)

    Why don't you get the pattern and build up your own stash?

    Hi, I found the pattern for $12 and only $1.5 shipping at the site below. I ordered the pattern. My daughter and I will each work on one as a mother/daughter projects.

    Try to make your own. It doesn't appeal to me. :roll: :roll: :roll:

    I'm not too into "Halloween" decorations...as a kid I LOVED trick or treating but the whole skull and cross bones, witches and ghosts kinda don't do much for me. That's just me. The quilt is really lovely and I like the colors.

    Okay, that brings up a question. If you find a kit like that, can't afford the kit, can't find the pattern, would it be violating copyright to copy it by making the pattern yourself?

    ABSOLUTELY! With the exception of buying the pattern, you're describing what I do. I get ideas from patterns in magazines and books, but often 'borrow' pictures from catalogs or on-line and venture bravely on from there.

    I asked that question (on this board) some months ago because I do "borrow". The kits are waaaaaaay too expensive and I dislike someone else making my fabric choices for me. The answer I liked and decided to use as a guide was that if the blocks, etc., are common (public domain) that you are not violating copyright. I might be less inclined to copy if I were planning to sell the finished quilt, but I don't do that.

    Since I'm quite enamored with all things Halloweenie, this quilt is right up my alley! Denise, could you please let me know and report back in about the pattern. I'd like to know if it's mainly pieced or has some/ a lot of applique etc? It looks mainly pieced, but the picture isn't very detailed. And I like to know what I'm getting into before I decide to buy a pattern!

    I'm also along the same lines as Patrice. This would be a great way to use up some Halloween scraps and buy your own. I've never bought a "kit" for the same reasons Patrice stated. I generally prefer to buy and make any pattern my own by picking out my own fabrics. IMO that's a great chunk of the fun in quilting.

    no

    I make all of my patterns, I look at others work to gain inspiration, but in the end they are always modified and completly mine

    Love it as I love Halloween but the pattern can be found here and then just add the applique. Just look through the patterens and you will find it. Sorry I don't know what page but I remember seening it done in yellow without the halloween theme.
