Sewing for Fall/Halloween

I'm so ready for fall weather to be here! So I thought maybe sewing up some Halloween-inspired designs might help me to cool off. The first three are Kimberbell designs. The top one "Too Faboolous" is a pillow about 16" x 13", from her book "Oh the Possibilities...For Halloween." The green glittery spider is from JoAnns.

 I'm saving this design here just because I think I should make this one too!

This square table-topper is about 23" square. It's ready for me to do some quilting. The border fabric is something I've had for years, and it's one of my all-time favorite Halloween designs.

This mini quilt is 15" x 17". It's made with 2 of the little mini charm packs (they measure 2.5" square). It will go on my coffee table, with perhaps an orange pumpkin.

The Kimberbell bench pillow is about half quilted. When the quilting is finished, I'll add some black buttons to the center of the two candy-corn flowers, and add the rick rack leaves to the big flower on the right. 

What have you been working on?

  1. I was reading the comments on Pam Buda's giveaway post and was intrigued when I read that you make minis. That is my passion, too. So I had to come check out your blog. It was interesting to me that you were featuring fun Kimberbell designs in this post. Kim lives here in the valley where I live and her twin sister owns a wonderful quilt shop here.
    Looks like you are all set for Halloween! : )

  2. Mary, these are so cute! I can't wait to see your cozy cottage all decorated for Halloween! It's going to be adorable! As always, wonderful work!!
