New patchworks for fall

I've always wanted a Halloween quilt so I finally made one.





While I was at it I made this for the mudroom door too.



I'm starting to smell fall in the air.

So sweet and FUN Dana! *sigh* I LOVE fall...

I love that your Halloween quilt has turquoise in it! I would have thought it had to be exclusively orange and black. You are too clever! That pumpkin wallhanging is really cute too. . . makes me want to get out my apple quilt.

I love that vintage looking halloween fabric with the kids, who makes that? The color combo is so funky and fresh. That aqua color goes so well. Wouldn't have thought to use it. You are so talented. What fun to have all these cute quilts in your home. I bet your girls love them, and I am sure other family members fight over who gets to swap gifts with you at Christmas.

Oh how divine! I just love Halloween and fall...I actually got a panel at the thrift that someone started to quilt and then stopped...so, I'm going to try to get that going before the holiday is over! Thanks for the inspiration!

kristine hanson said...

oooooooooooooooooh would you show pictures of the entire quilt? I am in the process of making a halloween quilt too, I used the same "vintage" halloween fabric with the little kiddo's...love...love!

LollyChops said...

You made one with Teal AND Orange AND Halloween? My goodness woman. I might actually love you now.

So here goes my feeble plea.

Dear New Best Friend on the ENTIRE PLANET,

This is Lolly. It's cold and rainy here in Texas. Mostly cold. I think last night it went down to 40 below (yes I know it's September AND Texas.. I failed to mention it's Texas, NP (north pole)). I hear that teal AND orange quilts with my favorite theme (halloween) are the best remedy for such cold nights. Please do send it right away as I would hate to lose a toe.

Sincerely,
Your BBFL (bestest friend for LIFE)

hunnybunny said...

Oh my that is a stupendous stuff (I don't use that word nearly enough). I especially love the vintage looking fabric, it's so pretty.
I also feel compelled to share with you that we are indeed moving to the country, Mr. Bunny and I agreed to rent in a very small town near my family and see if we like it before we buy. I'm not going to lie your blog helped make me want it more. Next learning to drive...
