Catch- Up…

I am still plodding along on my Halloween postage stamp quilt. I do love all the fabrics I am using… they represent years and years of collecting.  Some from dolls I made or decor items or quilts…  such fun memories!!


I actually added a design element to all the tiny pieces which I think will look great when it’s quilted and embellished afterwards…


I had 2 lovely family visitors from out of town for the weekend, so did not get any sewing done until this afternoon after they left.


I had bee last week and made my dear beemates  little hedgehog pin cushions that I found a tut for on Pinterest HERE!!


Very fun to make and they turned out so cute and pleasing to all!!


I also forgot to post that a few weeks ago, my dear bee friends and I went to a lecture/trunk show by Alex Anderson.


I have always wanted to meet her, as she taught me how to quilt… well, her “Simply Quilts” TV show did. 


How many of you feel the same way about her?


She was quite fun and down-to-earth…seemed like a girl next door!!  It was fun too see her quilts, too!!


I’ve got bee tomorrow here at my house.  Yay!!


What are you up to this week? 


Sewing on something awesome??

Who Talked Me Into This???

I LOVE autumn and especially Halloween. Below was Halloween in my old home!!


So, I have made LOTS of Halloween dolls and decor and quilts over the years…


so I have LOTS of Halloween fabric scraps!!


I fell in love with Kelly’s postage stamp quilt on her blog, Charming Chatter, and decided to use up those scraps to make a Halloween postage stamp quilt.


I completely emptied that bin of smaller scraps and used some of the many Halloween fat quarters I’ve collected to cut lots and lots

postage stamp 1

and lots of 2” squares.

postage stamp 3

And I’m sewing the squares into 16 patch blocks which will finish at 6”.  I’ve got about 30 sewn up so far…


This will take  F O R E V E R!!!


But it will be an awesome quilt, I think!!


So, what are you up to these days????
