Fabulous Fabric Series - My FREE Halloween tablerunners! from Pat Sloan's Blog

Post 3 of 4 in my Fabric Fabric - Halloween edition, is all about Panels and table runners! Both are SUPER fast to stitch up and magically change you room

Panels are GREAT for decorating. Fast, easy, and cute! Or spooky in the case of Mr. Chillingsworth. I'm rather fond of him myself.

I made this for my niece who loves all things spooky.  The panel is still available but the companion fabrics are not. BUT you can find other fabulous fabrics and do this basic idea for ANY panel with my directions. 

  • Make your panel the size of my ...

Halloween haberdashery from Polka Dots and Butterflies

My new favorite obsession is newsprint fabric.  And of course I love Halloween.  So this pattern by Melissa Mortenson at Polkadotchair was perfect for me.  It is called Halloween Haberdashery.  It went together very easily once I got the hang of the hats.  I also got to use my other new favorite obsession piping.  I used piping around the edges of the pillows.  I am so in love with these pillows I think I will make some for each season.  Changing pillow covers is such an easy way to make over the house for the different seasons.  Now to just ...

Another one (or four) bites the dust................... from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I wrote a while back that having my designs published in a magazine is the kiss of death for the magazine. Here's the link to that post if you don't remember. Well, it's happened again..........

I have mostly been writing for the magazines under the F+W Media umbrella. Just easier to deal with one company. They publish magazines like McCall's, Quiltmaker, Fons and Porter, etc.

Last week, F+W Media announced that MORE magazines (four in fact) are being shut down. THREE of them are quilting magazines. I don't care about the knitting magazine ...

Woopsie Doodles Witchy Poo! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

Woopsie Doodles Witchy Poo! I had some fun and spent an afternoon stitching up this sweet mug rug. Several years ago my sister and I split a grab bag of Halloween scraps and I'm still having fun with it! I made this sweet mini quilt of Witchy Poo's shoes and striped leggings. So festive for Halloween! Let me show you how quick and easy this goes together...

I didn't want to cut out all of those 'stripes' for Witchy Poo's leggings, so instead I cut two 1 1/2" x WOF strips of the black fabric ...

No-Sew Halloween Boo Banner from Creatin' in the Sticks

Halloween crafting is in full swing here in the Sticks.

Today I have a free tutorial over on the 
to make this
No-Sew Halloween Boo Banner.


Knowing when to use the right iron-on adhesive is important.
This is a NO-SEW project and that means you must use the best product for the job,
(It's in the red package).


Red = NO SEW

I've seen people across internet land use HeatnBond® Ultrahold in quilting projects.

That is a "no, no" if you are planning on quilting through it.

Your long arm professional will not like you ...

DIY decorar la casa Calabaza Halloween from La Vida en Patchwork

DIY decorar la casa Calabaza Halloween

Boooooo, se acerca Halloween,y este mes de octubre se decora con calabazas, que si son de patchwork mejor que mejor.

Pero esta calabaza es un poco más Halloween, con gato negro incluido. Si te apetece, puedes venir al monográfico que se hará en Madrid los días 13 y 27 de Octubre por la mañana. Esos ojos verdes me tienen hechizada, mira que ha quedado bonito, y es lo que tienen los buenos patrones.

El gato no puede ser más mono, me gustó hacerlo, es más o menos rápido, y el resultado es precioso ...

Halloween Gnome Mini from Lakardia

It’s October! I want to share a seasonal sewing project with you.

First, as long as you’re at your computer, click here and download this free Mr. Gnome foundation paper piecing pattern from Unicorn Harts. You can save the digital file to your computer and print as many copies as you need. I like to print on Carol Doak’s foundation paper.

Then, grab your fabrics and plan out Mr. Gnome’s features, outfit, and background. After several layout options, I think the mini looks best when the Mister is made with darker fabrics, as well as a ...

Gone Batty Quilt and Pattern Release from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Welcome to my Birthday Bash Month. I will be sharing fun things with you the whole month of October, like new patterns, giveaways, tutorials and more. Yes. It’s true, I was born on Halloween. Although my mother wished, hoped, and most likely prayed that I wouldn’t be born on that day, I was. She feared that I would be called a witch, or worse, so she proactively dressed me as a pumpkin for the holiday. I grew to love my birthday and all it had to offer. Things like candy, funny songs, school carnivals, and dressing up as ...

Done, done and done! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Today it's all about what I've been working on. While it seems that my focus has been scattered and I worked on the computer for most of the week, I did manage to get some sewing done.

Even better, yesterday was a fairly relaxed day. Oh, you're never going to believe this. I've struggled for a while to upload books to my tablet. Mostly reference books. Well, yesterday I was loading stuff like crazy. I think I know what the problem was. It took a wee bit of response time to upload the book and perhaps ...

A Fun Trick or Treat Bag! from Quilt Doodle Doodles


Trick or Treat! I know it's a bit early to think about those little goblins that ring the doorbell Halloween night, but, it's not too early to do some special sewing for the little monsters sweeties in your life. I doodled up a bat the other day, sorta a spin off of my Going Batty mug rug. It's a spooky little bat that you can applique onto a tea towel if you'd like but I decided to make a trick or treat bag. Better yet, this Trick or Treat bag will hold a ton of goodies ...

Jack O Lantern! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

I love that fall is right around the corner. I am looking forward to the cooler days and the sound of 
the leaves crunching under foot. I am already thinking about Halloween and have been having fun doodling... I cam up with this mischievous Jack-O-Lantern that's sure to make your trick or treaters giggle. I've put the design on a tea towel from Dunroven but this design would be wonderful on a 10-minute table runner, apron or made into a mini quilt.  I pulled some festive fabric from my fabric stash, this is a great project to ...
