Are you a Halloween fan?  I don't really like the holiday itself.  Don't hate me!  It's just not my thing.  I don't want to dress up, I don't want to go to a costume party (or any kind of party, for that matter), and I don't want to go to a haunted house.  But for whatever reason, I LOVE Halloween fabric and quilts!  I already featured one Halloween fabric collection for Friday Fabric Refresh this year (if you missed it, you can check that out here) but I couldn't resist doing another Halloween post for Spooky Darlings by Ruby Star Society.  This line is full of pumpkins, black cats, skulls, ghosts, candy, and fancy spiderwebs with little metallic spiders!

I liked one of the refreshed quilts so much that I bought some fabric from Fat Quarter Shop and I'm going to turn it into a real quilt.  I can't wait to see if it turns out as good in real life as it looks in digital form!  If you want to see which quilt I'm making, make sure you're following me on Instagram so you don't miss it when I start sharing!


The first quilt I've refreshed in Spooky Darlings is Stargazing, which is a fat quarter quilt.  Most of the time, I tend to use white or light fabrics for my quilt backgrounds.  I decided to try a black background this time and I love it!  It definitely adds to the spooky Halloween feeling!


Another fat quarter quilt is Starry Skies.  This quilt combines stars and chains.  Two of my favorite things in a quilt pattern!

Treasure Hunt, which also uses fat quarters, goes together more quickly than it might look so this is a great choice if you need a quilt fast.  I went back to my usual white background with this one.


The final fat quarter quilt that I refreshed in Spooky Darlings is Tumble.  I used a black solid for the accent and decided to spice up the background a bit by using the pink-on-white hole punch dot basic print (it's the one called Orchid).

If you prefer jelly rolls to fat quarters, I have you covered!  I refreshed Log Jam in two of the three layout options in the pattern.  I couldn't decide between a light or dark background so I'm sharing both versions for each!

I also refreshed my Friendship pattern with both a light and dark background.  Since there is a lot of background in this pattern, I again used the pink-on-white hole punch dot basic for the background for a little more interest.


If you want to avoid cutting up these cute prints into little pieces, a layer cake and my Stay Square pattern might be a good combo.  This is a great quilt for showcasing the prints in a collection.

While charm pack squares are smaller than layer cake squares, Garden Charm is a good option if you have a couple of charm packs and don't want to cut them up.  I tried out two different dark backgrounds.  Both are prints from the Spooky Darlings collection.

That's all for today!  Are there other patterns of mine that you would like to see in Spooky Darlings?  Let me know in the comments below and I might be able to include it in a future Friday Fabric Refresh post!


Until next time,
