I also started on a few new projects.
I decided I needed an official Halloween quilt. I don't have one, yet I LOVE Halloween. I'm currently collecting those cute Department 56 Halloween Village houses and I have them on my entry table already....yes in August. So I decided to get busy making Wild Things by Thimble Blossoms. I have wanted to make this quilt for awhile now and saw it last year done in Halloween fabrics - so I decided to venture out with it this year. Not sure why I have put this pattern off for so long. I LOVE IT! It goes together fast, it isn't blocks and I feel the fabric is still showcased rather well. I have 17 of the 42 blocks complete in only an hour or so's time. One good night of sewing and these babies will be done!
I have to say the spiderweb fabric may be my favorite. This line is called Monster Mash (I think) by Sandy Gervias. I got the green fabric with all the monsters on it for the back fabric. My kids are gonna love that!
I also cut out some squares to make me a Christmas Granny Square quilt. I kind of missed this quilt along, but have been drooling over all the cute quilts I've seen.
I've cut out 12 blocks, and sewn my first 2. I think this will be a fun project to sew me a block here and there, in hopes of getting it completed with in the next month or so.
I'm using Joy by Kate Spain - such a fun line.
Once I get the first 12 done, I'll decide if I need bump it up to 20 blocks...we'll see. I'll keep ya posted!
