Let me tell you about it!!
I so loved what we all did during the 100 day challenge and last year with our Pumpkin Challenge and our Snowman Sew-a-Long.! It was amazing and the quilts turned out amazing. This Quilt will be a bit different. We are so excited to bring you our Halloween Party Bus.
This time we have created all different blocks that are designed to go together in a certain way. This is a true Halloween Quilt. There is an option for a table runner or bench pillow by using the rows separately but its designed to be a quilt. These are all done in the hoop and then assembled on a sewing machine.
We have a master plan for assembling the quilt, we will be working in rows, assembling as we go. Each block is numbered and each week you will sew out 7 blocks. We will do this for approximately 6 weeks so through Sept, then we will be finished unless you want a border. You can choose to do a very planned color theme or you can just wing it.
Since its a Halloween Quilt I would suggest gathering you fun Halloween Fabrics, oranges, purples, yellows, dark blues etc for this one. You can use your stash or purchase new fabrics, we will try to offer some fun fabrics along the way in our fabric bundle sales.
So whats the big deal? You know we work hard at designing new and fun sew a longs. I love to keep them a bit of a secret so you are excited to get them together. Well thats where we wanted to have some fun!! You guys know how we love to have fun.
So each week you will be given a set of blocks to stitch and assemble. As you finish a week set it aside and when the next week is done you can assemble the rows and build your quilt each week until it is finished. We will be offering this on Ruzuku, my online classroom, so those of you who have done our sew a longs in the past or are in our Mug Rug club you will be familiar with it!
Who is this for?What are the hoop requirements? This one is for Machine embroiders who own a 6"x10" hoop or an 8"x12" hoop. The quilt will be in two sizes. If you use the larger hoop your finished blocks are approx 7 7/8"x 11 3/4" and the quilt finishes without borders at apporox 55"x 59".
What if I don't have a larger hoop? I am so sorry but this sew a long is not for you but please check out our Pumpkin Challenge which can be done in a smaller hoop.
I still have lots of questions since I don't really get to see what we are making, how can I ask questions? You are always free to email me your questions also.
How will we get our files? Once you sign up you will be automatically sent the appropriate files to your email address every week with instructions. These are delivered via Newsletter to your inbox and the files are always at the bottom of the newsletter. You will make the required blocks for that week and then in a week you will get another set of blocks. These will deliver every Sunday at midnight. Your files include the embroidery files, instructions, photos and sometimes videos. We will also be setting up the classroom where all the videos, demos, instructions, files and extras will be kept for you.
Is there a place where we all can show off our blocks? You will also be invited into our FB group where you can share your blocks and progress. Anyone can join the group which is public now but might change to private. If you join and do not sign up please cheer on the participants. Being able to see each others blocks is always so motivating and inspiring. I loved seeing all the variations and colors everyone used during the 100 day challenge.
What if I sign up late? Will I get the past files? Yes!! You will get all the files, videos etc so that you are caught up to us. You are free to make it at your own pace but doing it together is such fun!

I hope you will join me for the next 6 weeks for a fun filled project. It all starts on August 15, 2022. We want everyone to post their blocks on social media, if you are on social media, with the hashtag #desireeshalloweenpartybus and #thehalloweenpartybuschallenge
Join today and get started collecting your fabrics. Why go it alone when we can do this together.
I will not be showing you a picture of a finished quilt just each block at a time but we will be giving you a sample mock up of our designs. At the end we will have the big reveal. So for now its a bit of a mystery. I will be looking for some special quilts to feature on my website. This pattern is not available to the public so we are making it together in this sew along.
You need a working knowledge of your sewing machine and your embroidery machine. We will provide SVG files if you like. I suggest a new needle and a good selection of fabrics and thread for this project
Includes embroidery files in multiple sizes and formats, PDF instructions for blocks, videos and access to our private FB group. Please follow the link at the bottom of the description to sign up for this online class.
