Pumpkin Palooza - Decorate for Fall with Two Quick Projects from One Quilt Pattern with HeatnBond EZ Print Lite from Creatin' in the Sticks

Don't you love the new colors of fall?  Fall decorating doesn't have to be only orange, brown, and yellow in color anymore.  With pumpkins showing up in all different colors, it's fun to add aquas, greys, and whites to compliment and add a modern flair to traditional fall decor. 

 Today, I'm over on the Thermoweb blog to share a pumpkin applique quilt block pattern using HeatNBond EZ Print Lite and 2 quick projects using the quilt block and the new fabric collection from Windham Fabrics, Meriwether.

This pattern is so easy with HeatnBond® Lite EZ Print ...

Odds and Ends from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

What a month! Many exciting happenings on this side of the ocean have kept me pretty busy. I (Teri) have been busily stitching class models for upcoming classes, one of which is pictured on the left,—this is, when I can find a moment to sit and stitch. Our youngest daughter got married a couple of weeks ago, so we had lots of family festivities. 

The tables runners we cut a few weeks ago turned out lovely. Maybe now that she knows how much fun it is to use a rotary cutter, I can begin to make a quilter out ...

Introducing Boston Commons by FreeSpirit Fabrics! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

The day has finally arrived - the release of FreeSpirit Fabrics' new line, Boston Commons!  I've been waiting for so long to share this beautiful fabric with you, but first I want to tell you a little bit about the genesis of my projects...

When FreeSpirit contacted me about Boston Commons, they told me that it was inspired by an antique quilt owned by Donna Wilder, who started FreeSpirit Fabrics.  As you may know from my blog, I don't work much in reproduction fabrics, so this was a whole new challenge for me.

remembered a book ...

Weekly update: starts and finishes, September stash report from With Strings Attached

Rabbit, rabbit!  It's the first of the month.

I can boast of four small projects, started and finished this week.

This mug rug is a birthday gift for a friend who likes dragonflies. 

This mug rug will accompany some books and cookies as a get-well gift for another friend.  The 6" maple leaf block was in the orphan blocks box.

 I used two more orphan maple leaves for this tote bag.  (The other side is similar to this one. The leaf has slightly different colors.)  I fiddled with strips until I got to the size I wanted.

I'll ...

The Christmas Caroling Row Along - Will the Real Santa Please Stand Up? - Pattern and Giveaways from Creatin' in the Sticks

Welcome to Creatin' in the Sticks
The Christmas Caroling Row Along.

It's been crazy making Christmas during the summer
but if you want to have a quilt finished by December it is a must.

This row was inspired by a childhood memory that may not be quite right, but I chose to go with it.  

"Will the Real Santa Please Stand Up?" was a song my grade school class performed during a Christmas program at school.  When Marian from Seams to be Sew asked for designers to create quilt rows inspired by Christmas carols or poems I thought ...

Some fun, quick and easy finished projects! from Living4Quilting

Here are some projects that I've been working on last week.  I finished this quilt  and I really like it.  I don't normally like square quilts but I like this one because of the beautiful flower fabric on it.  It really looks like Fall to me. 

Here's three other table runners I finished.  These are for Christmas this year. I'll keep one and give the other two to my sweet daughter-in-laws. 

These are the table runners I made at the guild workshop I went to on Saturday last weekend.  This pattern is referred to as a ...
