I think this will be the last Halloween item I list in my shop this season. Unless of course I get inspired and buy some fabric, I have just about used up my stash of spooky prints. This pillow cover is machine quilted in a swirly all over pattern and the back has a hidden zipper. It is so hidden by those crazy eyeballs, that you can't even see it in the pics.

I was really excited to put together this tablerunner. I had a couple of sets of fall placemats similar to these listed in my etsy shop. The customer also wanted a coordinating tablerunner to go along with it. I used a lot of the same fabrics, but also added some additional fabrics. I wanted them to coordinate, but not be too matchy-matchy. I hope she enjoys them!

I really love the pattern for this quilt. It is so great for using up all those scraps just laying around. The squares are all 2 1/2" unfinished, so this would also be a great quilt if you had some jelly rolls to use up. It is hard to capture in a picture, but the white sashing on this quilt is actually a white stripe. It adds just a bit of interest to this quilt. I love how soft and cuddly this quilt is and it is reversible! I used a bunch of fat quarters of some of my favorite fabrics for the back to get a great scrappy look!

I am totally late finishing these blocks, but they are in the mail so I can breathe a little easier. Linda is part of the Bee Addicted virtual quilting bee that I am involved in. For her month she sent some fun tropical prints and asked for 6 1/2" tiki huts. I can't wait to see her finished quilt!

I am super excited to have joined the Trust circle of the do. Good stitches charity quilting bee! I am thrilled to have joined this bee as a quilter, where I get to sew fun new blocks each month and then when it is my month I get to choose the design and finish off the quilt to be sent to My Very Own Blanket. From their website, My Very Own Blanket is and organization of volunteers dedicated to helping children in foster care feel valued and comforted.
There are a bunch of different circles in this bee and they each have a different charity. The quilts that the different circles in this bee have been making are just gorgeous - check out the Flickr pool if you are looking for some inspiration!

I listed a few more gathered clutches this week into my etsy shop. I just love these little clutches. They are perfect to carry when you only want to take the minimum with you. But I use mine as an organizer in my purse. It helps to keep the small things like keys and sunglasses from getting lost in the abyss of my purse :)

I have had the opportunity to participate in a couple of vintage sheet fat quarter swaps. As part of the bounty I have received a bunch of browns and oranges that I would normally not use. I had them all separated from the brighter colors and it dawned on me that they would make a great fall quilt.
I used a pattern from a Moda Bakeshop recipe. I had some random strips from some other projects so I modified the coin strips a bit so that they are a little more random. This quilt really came together quickly and I love how it turned out.
