Spooky Chinese Coin Quilt?

Can a Chinese Coin Quilt pattern be made using Halloween fabric? I threw tradition out the window and just went for it. The July Schnibbles pattern chosen is called Joy Luck. It is a pretty adorable quilt, and a little daunting. I didn't have a whole lot of time this month to work on it, I usually start these quilts at the beginning of the month... I started last week. I am happy to report I finished the top on Wednesday night though!
The fabric I used are two charm packs I picked up last fall, when Halloween was long over, they were super cheap, and super cute, so I added them to my basket. They go well with the pattern I think, the colors are really bright. The fabric line is called Spooktacular.

By the way I wanted to give a shout out to Quilt Taffy, they shipped me the Joy Luck pattern with no shipping charge! Woohoo!

Be sure to check out Sinta and Sherri's blogs on the first of August. They will have a Joy Luck Schnibbles parade and show off everybody's quilts, it's very cool to see them all.

I had a hard time deciding between Halloween and Christmas fabric for Joy Luck....I was a bit worried to choose the Halloween, but yours looks great! I am hoping our last Schnibble will work for Fall or Halloween fabric though!

You make your quilts by the dozen, don't you? LOL. I've just admired the Summer Porch one in your last post and thought it was gorgeous. And this new one is just as great. Those Schnibbles are fantastic.

I Love your Halloween Joy Luck Club! It never would have occurred to me to go with that fabric, but it's a winner! Congratulations on a great finish, your quilt was a great addition to the parade!

Yum! I love how the coins look like a big stack of pumpkins leaning on a picket fence. I can't think of a better Halloween pattern.
