Fall All Around

ModauFalling Leaves.  I finished the Moda U kit I was working on for the shop with the Allspice Tapestry fabrics.  I have mixed feelings about this one.  I loved the fabrics before I started, but I saw too many of the prints repeated and it was hard to randomize the blocks while laying it all out.  After I started sewing rows, I started to like it a little better.  And I had zero trouble getting the borders sewn on - that part was a breeze.  This is not a very good picture - maybe I can get a better one of it hanging in the shop.



Decor1Fall Decorating.  Just a little behind this year, I pulled out the Halloween decorations yesterday, or "Spookytown" as my kids call it.  They know just where everything was last year - Heaven forbid I want to switch things around!  Here are my 2 main 'scenes' and the last photo shows the great new addition this year - Witchy Poo Annie from Raggedy Old Annies - what a great doll - isn't she adorable?



Decor2Falling BehindNicole challenged me to finish binding one quilt by Sunday.  I thought I could handle the challenge with ease, but I only got about half the binding on my orange quilt.  Well, at least I am making progress.  I did get a lot of piecing done for my 9-patch project, and some sewing room organizing was accomplished as well.  With too many projects, it's really hard for me to stay focused....

  4. The Allspice quilt turned out great! The border fabric is terrific. I believe I must get some of that for my quilt, whatever it will be. Love the decorations too, especially the stuffed stack of pumpkins.
