2 Cool Ideas for Halloween and Fall quilts

These 2 Cool Ideas for Halloween and Fall quilts will jazz up your home decor or make a friend happy as they are great gifts! They are my latest finishes and I am so happy to see how they turned out.

This is Witches Party, the Halloween pattern I designed with my favorite Moda Fabrics collection for Halloween: Ghouls and Goodies. This is the third quilt I made with this collection (here are the other two), and I am not quite sure it will be the last. Why? Because of the bright colors, the dimensions of the motifs, the variety ...

PICKLEBALL LOVER from Made By Marney

As summer approaches, I am anticipating playing my newest passion in the park, Pickleball. All winter I have beaten the blues by socializing with 8 friends at indoor pickleball, while wearing masks.

I even sewed matching “pickle masks” for our teams. But I can’t wait to get back outside and play at some of the local courts in our city parks.

So when my son Brady suggested I create a Pickleball Gnome, I knew he was absolutely right. How had I forgotten to make a gnome doing my favorite sport?

Pickleball Gnome Potholders

You can get both patterns as ...

Loons from Made By Marney

I’m having fun designing new bird patterns…


Finding the right fabrics is always the key. The water fabric is perfect, don’t you agree? And the wonky black and white hashtag makes a super cute loon fabric! LOON ON THE LAKE #2 and LOON ON THE LAKE #3 are both brand new designs.


Here’s a loon I already had in my collection of FOWL FRIENDS. I’m planning to put all 3 of these loons together for a table runner for my cabin. We have a pair of ...

Rewarding Myself from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I haven't allowed myself to start something new in a really long time.  But after finishing all the Covered In Love quilts and making great progress on some of my WIPs, I thought I deserved to start a new project.

Quite a while back, a friend gifted me with these three lovely fabrics.  I had commented that I really liked these when she brought a quilt for me to quilt for her.  She had some leftover cuts so she passed them onto me.  They have been sitting on the corner of my cutting table since then - just waiting for ...

Another Chaser Block Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I thought this week I would share another scrap quilt finish I made using my Chaser block pattern.

This version of the pattern uses HSTs and creates a completely different look than previous versions.  I used this quilt to focus on using some of the larger chunks of fabrics in my scrap bin.

It made such a fun rainbow scrap quilt.

Just a reminder of the two previous quilts I made using the same pattern.  Kind of hard to believe that so many different designs can be made with just minor changes to a block.  

And I continue to think ...

A Mini Quilt Show from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 Pretty regularly, I receive photos of quilts made using one of my patterns.  I always love to see them and thought I would share a few of them with you today.

Here is a wonderful quilt made from my Wiggle Time pattern.  I love the solid color and the quilting she added that "wiggles" across the quilt..  This lap size pattern takes five fat quarters and some background fabric - you probably have the fabric in your stash!

This quilt was made using my All That Jazz pattern.  After seeing this one, I remembered I have a tub full of neutrals ...
