Happy Halloween!

I am making a mini-quilt wall-hanging, with a Jack o'lantern on it.  I pulled out all the orange scrap fabric I could find and took a contribution from my quilting buddy, T, and pieced the pumpkin part.  I am going to applique the eyes, nose, and mouth onto the quilt top.  I picked the candy corn fabric for the borders.  I have, what I think, is a better idea, now, but that would mean making a second one, and that ain't happening!  I have pinned the eyes, nose, and mouth on, so you can see what it is shaping up to be.

I Finished Something!

I made a baby quilt for little Evelyn, aka Evie.  I had some shu-fly orphan blocks from a previous study in pink, so I used some of those and some yellow fabrics to go in between.  The yellow birds and bees fabrics really set off the pink!  I used Winnie the Pooh and friends fabric for the backing.

I quilted it mostly stitch-in-the-ditch on my home
sewing machine. I used high-loft batting for extra
soft cuddliness!
