Happy Halloween!

I really enjoying all of the Quilted Halloween things I made this year and the crafts that I created.
I am starting my Thanksgiving crafts and getting out all of my decor for the house and porch. My crazy mind is already planning my Thanksgiving  feast. I decided this year it's going to be all of the traditional foods from when I and my husband were kids. Call me anal I can't help it. In this picture is the Halloween set I made this year. A lap Quilt for the couch, matching place mats and coasters. I just love doing this for every holiday. And of coarse more of the Halloween themed pumpkins from my collection.


Happy Quilting.

Almost Halloween

The weather is finally cooling off like winter is around the corner. As much as I miss the backyard cookouts and the beautiful flowers I look forward to more Quilting time. It really get my creative juices flowing when the weather changes.
All my Halloween material is back in my stash  and all my fall fabric is out so I can began creating some new Quilts. I started my first one and it is turkey inspired. The quilt in the picture I designed and had such a good time making it. I also painted and decorated the witches shoe to go along with it. So much fun.

Halloween Fabrics

I'm getting ready to put all of my Halloween fabrics away. No more new projects to start but boy do I have a lot of Halloween Fabric. I think I have an addiction to Halloween Fabrics. Okay I know I do. I can't help myself when I see something new. I went to a local Quilt Shop last week and they had another new line of Halloween Fabrics that I hadn't seen and it took everything in my power not to buy it. Last August I attended one of the local Quilt Shows and found these two little miniature Halloween Bags. I thought they were so cute. I had to buy them. Next to them is another pumpkin I made this year. So many clever ideas out there. I just love finding new things to make.

Halloween in 4 Days!

Four more days! Halloween will be here. I am all decorated and I have completely finished all of my projects. I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the Trick or Treaters come to the door. When my son Chris was little it was our tradition to go to the fabric store on Sept 1st every year so he could pick out his Halloween pattern for me to start making his Halloween costume. It was our special time and I cherish those days. As he got older he said to me one year " mom I'm too old for that". I was devastated. But they are awesome memories. The Quilt in this picture I made last year. Again anything pumpkin I love so a lot of my Halloween and Fall Quilts have pumpkins in them. I thought he was really cute.

Share your Halloween projects on my facebook page and my blog.

Farmers Wife Quilt

Farmers Wife! Most of us have either heard of it, tried it or made it. I don't think I have ever been more frustrated trying to follow a pattern. There is no true quarter inch seam. I found that some blocks are true quarter and some blocks are scant quarter. My Quilting instructor had a class that lasted a year and this pattern was our theme quilt in the local Quilt show. Most of my friends did traditional fabrics related to that time but not me. I went out of the normal box and used my favorite Halloween fabrics. I didn't get mine finished yet it's a work in progress. Hopefully I will finish it soon so stay tuned.


Happy Quilting.

Quilting and Coffee


Coffee is such a staple for Quilters. I look forward to the early mornings and my first up of coffee. I enjoy trying different coffee beans and I usually have at least 6 to 8 different coffee beans to choose from. Because I am such a neat freak I put all my beans in jars and label them. I also collect different seasonal coffee mugs to make it more fun. My Quilting group loves to drink coffee while we are working and my variety of flavored creamers add to the variety of choices.

 Candy Corn

I was really excited to start sharing my new Halloween projects with you. This table runner was something I designed and was so much fun to do. I love Halloween and I have a real problem staying away from buying more Halloween fabric every year. Needless to say my stash is Huge... So I have a lot of things to share this month. The candy corn is a side project that I took up this year. You buy the wood item unfinished then paint and paper it with scrap booking paper. So much fun to do and great to give away as gifts.  So please share your Halloween projects on my facebook page.

Happy Quilting.

Fun Halloween Project

I'm just about finished with all of my Halloween projects. I'm working on my last one so I can start on my actual Fall
themed projects. I have a lot of ideas of what I am going to do. In the mean time I used some of the scrap Halloween
material to make two sets of coasters. As I have said in the past I love to swap out coasters for each holiday or special
event. I get lots of compliments and they are so easy to make. The pumpkin is one of many that I made with Halloween material. So much fun and they are so festive. 

Happy Quilting.

Halloween Is Around The Corner

I finally finished all my Halloween projects. Getting ready to start Thanksgiving. I'm kinda sad because I really love Halloween and especially love making anything with Pumpkins or Witches. The cat in the corner is another one of 
my new hobbies. It's really fun and I usually take breaks from my sewing machine to paint and decorate them. Great gifts and awesome decor for holidays. 

Happy Quilting.
