A Few More Halloween Crazy Quilt Pieces from Kitty and Me Designs

Here are a few more Halloween Crazy Quilt pieces that I did awhile ago:








As soon as my divorce is final and I can get back to something that resembles a life, I can get back to more stitching.  I really miss doing my glittery crazy quilting but I can't get to most of my supplies so I have to enjoy the photos of what I've already done.  I hope you do too!!

Halloween Crazy Quilting from Kitty and Me Designs

I don't have any new stitching to share with you but I thought you'd like to see a few of the Halloween Crazy Quilt projects that I made a few years ago:


I made this for my cousin awhile back.  She loves Halloween!!

I did not design the cross stitch cat.  I believe the designer is Prairie Schooler.  I stitched the piece and then appliqued it onto the block use fusible web.  I topped stitched it too so that it stayed in place.  Then I added the trim by hand.

the glittery ruffle in the top right corner ...

The Witch's Quilt by Kitty Pearl
Part 1

Mrs. Leeds was extremely stern. Even the way she served tea had austere airs. Is she always like this? wondered Emily, Or is she afraid we will change things in the castle?
Jeremy sprang from behind the velvet draperies that framed the leaded glass casement of the castle library and bounded over to the divan to peruse the tea cakes and china service. His four-year old's exuberance startled Mrs. Leeds and earned an exasperated sigh from his father, coping with jet lag on the giant sofa across from Emily ...

Patches and Scat from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Shhhh…… the leaves are turning.... I'm sweeping leaves off my deck that have fallen from my oak and maple trees. I think it's too early, but when I look on the calendar, no not really. September and back to school is in a week.... fall is almost here. Before I know it, I'll be pulling out the fall decorations. So to celebrate the upcoming fall I have a new design that can be found in my Etsy shop. An adorable goofy pumpkin named Patches and his friend Scat the black cat. I was able to complete this ...

Let's sleep on it from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


You've heard the expression before - sleep on it. Well, that seems to be working like a charm for me. 

I have a quilt top that's on my list to get completed this year. Can I find the darn quilt top? Nope - I have the pattern and the container with all the extra fabric, but no quilt top. I know I had the top after everything got moved back in, but where did I put it? I searched and searched and nothing. 

Then yesterday morning, I woke up and knew exactly where the quilt top was. I ran downstairs ...

A reading pillow for Halloween from Carried Away Quilting


I’ve wanted to make a reading pillow for quite some time. It’s probably silly and nostalgic, considering my children are both in their 20s! No matter how old they get, I still remember fondly the hours we spent reading together . . . on the couch, on the floor, in the backyard, in a fort, at bedtime, after school . . . anywhere and everywhere. My sweetest memories are when Haley was a toddler sitting on my lap, with Luke snuggled next to us, reading aloud from his favorite book.

Well, I decided there was no reason I couldn't sew up a darling ...

That 70's Halloween Quilt - 1st Finish Q3 FAL from Quilted Delights


I know it is supposed to be Christmas in July not Halloween in July, but I finished my first UFO for the third Quarter of the 2019 Finish-A-Long and had to post it.






This one was started in October 2014 when I was doing the Black Cat Crossing Blog Hop.  




It is a pattern called "That 70's Quilt" from the book Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson.


I had made several projects for Black Cat Crossing hop and this was a final project I started with some of the leftovers of the zig zag quilt.  I didn't have ...

Fat Quarter Flourish autumn bundles from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! After I posted about my autumn quilt ideas earlier this week, I got to thinking that I would love to see my Fat Quarter Flourish pattern sewn up in fall fabrics. So, I mocked up some options using green, orange and black prints from Fig Tree’s Farmhouse II collection.

The great thing about my Fat Quarter Flourish pattern is that it only requires five fat quarters to make the top. And you can easily switch up the fabric placement depending upon what looks best to your creative eye!

Here is the fat quarter bundle I created ...

The end is in sight from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


It's the last day of 2018! While it seems that time just zoomed by, it really didn't. I've had some great long days of work. It sure makes a difference when you're not panicked! Not that I get panicky, but when I end up with two or more jobs to do at the same time - that makes for a less than comfortable situation.

I quilted and bound another quilt for a magazine. It's going in a box today. That is finish number 94 for the year. NO - you can't see it yet, but it ...

What I've been doing............ from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I thought there would be tons to share with you today since technically I haven't posted about my stuff for four days. Hmm - when I edited the pictures this morning, there isn't that much. BUT - there are finishes that constitute a lot of work.

Without further ado, let's have a look.

I got the binding on that bright orange community projects quilt for our guild. Hm - now the question is - should I count this as a finished project? I made the backing, quilted it and bound it. But I didn't make or have any part of ...
