Hey Boo – the Matching Solids
Peekaboo. Time for a closer look at the Hey Boo fabric collection by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics. This collection will be arriving to quilt shops April 2024. If you are interested in getting this fabric, the best thing to do is reach out to your favorite shop and request it. More often than not, shops appreciate the input!
There is a fun Halloween quilt panel included in this collection. It comes as yardage on the bolt and measures approx 24″ x 44″. It contains 15 Halloween art prints measuring approx. 7-3/4″ x 7-3/4″. I recommend trimming them down to 7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ (or smaller) to start out with.
The Collection Colors
Here’s a little peek at each colorway of Hey Boo. Which one is your favorite? I love the addition of soft pink to the Halloween rainbow. Makes it more sweet and less spooky! You’ll also notice the “Practical Magic Stars” in the collection being used a lot in the projects for backgrounds, sashing, bindings, etc. They read as solids if you’re looking for something a little more interesting than a solid.
I found myself using a lot of Moda Bella solids while stitching up projects in Hey Boo fabric. You will find the green in Frank’s face, the pinks in the haunted houses – and almost all of them in a Monster Mash sampler which I’ll be revealing soon.
Here’s the list of the best solids I’ve found for this collection. You’ll notice I’ve also listed a few that are not shown in the photos – but used throughout the projects so you can find them all in one place. I’ve made notes next to those ones so you know why I’m including them.
