Pattern Description:

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays for designing and sewing quilts. And I love making mini-quilts, especially one of my 'Pocketfuls'. My 'Pocketful' quilts are fast and fun to make and are great for gifts. The 12-1/2" finished size is just right for fitting into the 12" x 14" table stands made by Ackfeld. Keep an eye out also for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas 'Pocketfuls' that will be available soon.

Make one for the special person in your life and fill the pocket with a treasure. The pockets on my Pocketful's are large enough to hold a photo, a momento, or for Halloween, a large candy bar.

This pattern is foundation pieced. If you have never tried foundation piecing, now is the time. I have provided detailed instructions and lots of photos. I use Stitch-N-Tear(r) Lite for foundation piecing. I love it because it holds up well, especially if you make a mistake and need to tear out a row of stitching. It also rips out easily.

If you need help with binding, there is an excellent binding tutorial quilt on www.pellonprojects.com that you can download for free. I have other Pocketful mini-quilt patterns on that same website.
