Happy Halloween!!






Happy Halloween to everyone!

We usually have lots of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. It is great fun to watch them all having a great time. Our count was around 100 children last year. Out home is all decorated and ready.

OK, I get caught up in the schnibbles! I made all these mug mats from other project left-overs. Does anyone else make these small pieces? I just love to have something portable to work on with my hands, at appointments, etc. Fun!

I saw this green quilt in one issue of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. It was a series quilt over several months, but the trouble was, I only had the one issue. So I drafted it myself. I love the outcome. There are exactly one zillion tiny 1/2 square triangles, finishing at 1 inch. Of course, it still needs to be quilted...
It comes complete with unclipped threads. :)

The small table runner is just for the Fourth of July. Wrong season, huh!! But it has been cut out a long time, and I decided it needed to be put together. I machine quilted it. The pattern is from Bonnie at Quiltville, which I just love.

Hope you all enjoy this day!!

Thank-you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I have made mug mats like yours for family and friends as gifts. For the craft show I do I make simple ones.

Same goes for the table runners. For the show I make simple ones.

Love yours mug mats and table runner. You did a great job drafting your quilt.

Wow, what gorgeous projects. I admire those wonderful feathered star quilts but don't think I have the skillset yet for one of those babies!!! Everything looks so beautiful.

The quilt is wonderful! The mug mats and table runner are super.

I always have something small to work on at all times. That way if I'm growing tired of working on a large project, I can switch over and have some fun with the tiny stuff.

Love the mug mats! Where did you find the pattern for that? I hate coasters that suck up the liquid and aren't machine washable.

The Feathered Star quilt is gorgeous!! I made my first FStar this year and loved it - enjoy seeing how others made a quilt around the star.

Found your blog through a link on Fairybread Quilts and really enjoyed looking round :)
