My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Up From Here

Happy Monday!

Earlier this summer I joined a quilt along hosted by Roseanne & Sue with Home Sewn By Us.  No rules, no deadline and best of all 3 quilts to choose from!

I chose to do the quilt Up From Here first – the name itself is so positive and motivating! The tutorial/pattern can be found here.

The block in the pattern finishes at a whopping 24 inches! I was excited because I love big blocks. I needed a new Halloween quilt and didn’t want want to buy any fabric so I adjusted the pattern to make a 18 inch block.

My Halloween version of Up From Here measures 54 x 54 inches.

Looks great on our recliner and matches a pillow I made several years ago.

Until next time Happy Sewing!

  1. I love your quilt, and so appropriate for this season! I haven’t even started mine yet — I can’t seem to settle on fabrics. Soon, though!

  2. Hi Karla! I had no idea you were making a Halloween-themed Up From Here quilt. Wow, it turned out just great and it does look super with your pillow. I can’t see how you quilted it, but wasn’t it great to have such a large block?! You make a few and you’re good to go. I’ll add this to my next update. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Such a cute quilt and love that matching pillow…ugh, I don’t have anything made for halloween 😦 The two quilts I made last year sold – which isn’t a bad thing – so now I’ll have to decide if I can do something quick…lol, probably not!
