Succulent Pumpkins

Crafty Day with my friend Christine.  We made Succulent Pumpkins.

The pumpkin is not cut!  Using a glue gun, attach the moss and then glue the succulent cuttings onto the pumpkin.  The glue will not damage the succulents and it will last for weeks with a slight misting with water once or twice a week.  Chose a white pumpkin so I could use it through Thanksgiving.  The top two are hostess gifts for a Halloween Tea I'm attending.  Fun Day!

Scrappy Quilt

Love the design of this scrappy quilt.  It has loads of half square triangles.  Moved the 2.5" square bin next to the sewing machine and just began sewing the pieces. The secondary design is terrific! So many colors and so many squares!  Proud of this quilt!

Prayers and Squares Quilt

This quilt was a Prayer Quilt made with all Asian Fabric that was donated by Kaufman Fabrics.  The pattern was Disappearing Pinwheel by Jenny Doan's  (Missouri Star Quilt Company)  video on Youtube.  This pattern is completed quickly and can be a bonus using fabric from my stash!  I did buy the border fabric (wasn't enough of the donated fabric).

Pumpkin Time at Roger's Gardens

What a marvelous day to spend a day with my friend Christine!  Roger's is such a marvelous place, but especially in the fall!  Pumpkins glore, Halloween decorations and the marvelous flowers!!  Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!!

Love this bumpy, warty pumpkin!! So wanted to buy one but I knew it was just too early, it wouldn't last until Halloween or Thanksgiving!  Bummer!

Scrappy Time Quilt

Love, love, love Scrappy Quilts!  This is the block for my newest scrappy quilt!  I just drug out the bin of 2.5" squares and got going use my new favorite book.  The blocks are easy and some were made with Bonnie Hunter's Leader Ender Method.

Then it's onto the quilting.  But you need to let it rest (HA) in the closet for a while so that it can mellow. Actually I just got started going on another project.  Quilting Away!

So another quilt is complete!  I think I'll take it to Friendship Quilters and ask if we could sell it at our Quilt Sale in March 2015.  It's a good size and quilting is not just all over.

Hunter Star Top Complete

I am so thrilled with my Hunter Star quilt top.  The small black and white strip first border just sets the quilt off and makes it awesome.  Now to purchase the back (25% off on the 25th of the month)  Yeah  getting a deal!  Plan on purchasing a piece that's red poppies with black and white designed background.  Best part is that tomorrow is the 25th!

Hunter Star

What a great day to use the AccuQuilt Go to make the Hunter Star Block!  Took awhile to figure out how to cut specific pieces, cut just white star shapes, the large triangles and thin middle pieces in the color I needed for the block. At first I just covered the die with a one color but didn't need some of the shapes in all the colors.  It's going to be a dynamite quilt!  I love the contrast.

So while I'm sewing the black, red and white blocks together I thought this would be a great patriotic quilt to make for the Veterans!  So got the GO out and cut red, white and blue to make a sample block.  It's now on my "TO  DO"  list.  

I'll have to get some fabric.. Only had a bit of red and this piece of blue in bin. The red section needs to be a print and not a solid.  Need yardage to do the quilt, well ok a trip to the quilt store won't be such a bad thing!
