|I am in LOVE with this pumpkin fabric!!!!|
When I first relocated back to the south, I arrived with nothing but 2 suitcases and a giant smile. I had no fabric stash, no sewing machine, and no idea how much either of those would change my life/house/sanity level either!! When I finally did invest in my first sewing machine, I logged onto the Fat Quarter Shop, with a big heart and a small budget and lost myself for about 2 hours in piles of delicious fabrics.
|Can you see the glitter in the spider?|
I finally decided that the best first project (lol) that I could start with was going to be something Halloween and so I bought a quilt pattern, a fat quarter bundle, some extra yardage and waited with great anticipation.
Now, quite a few months later and with a gigantic pile of sewing behind me, my house is a giant fabric stash, I sew in the craft room... the dining room... the living room... my bedroom... my office... outside... I have about 12 projects on the go and am now doing craft shows. Insane!! Sadly though, I never did my Halloween Quilt!! I love the pattern, and I grew my Haloween stash to the point where I could probably make 4 more of these but I still hadn't actually MADE one... so this weekend... I DID!!!
|Witches use airplanes these days don't yo know?|
|Ghosts, Goblins Ghouls!|
The finished quilt is 3 ft wide and hangs 5 ft long.
|Goblins! My first time blanket stitching!|
|Love that pirate mouse on the stocking!|
|More adorable pumpkins! <3|
|I backed the quilt with a delicious Orange and Black glitter spider fabric!!|
So there you have it! I'm going to make a second one for someone special but I think I'll wait until after the craft fair which is in 26 DAYS EEEEeeEEEeEEK!
