I can tell you, I squealed with delight when I saw these fabulous fabrics, that Maywood Studio came out with for Halloween. The colors are so warm and wonderful. They are truly just incredible, and lets face it, nothing gets me more excited than Halloween. Plug your ears all you Moose out there, you didn't hear that from me! :-)
Here's my tribute to "Black Cat Crossing" quilt.
I knew when I saw these fabrics, they needed to be focal points.
Of course they had to be surrounded by Friendship Stars.
To remind me of all the friends I have made in this
blogging community, that I love so much.
Each star has a button in the center.
And the border is finished off with prairie points!
Now I just have to share...
(you know I share the good the bad and the ugly here)
I had this all pieced, quilted, bound, and was in the process of stitching on all the little buttons...
When "Horrors" I found a problem.
Do you see it?
You know I love you all, but I was not about to unbind, unquilt and unstitch this for you!
And I couldn't live with it.
No... I got my thoughts together and came up with a solution.
Yes... a patch!
If there is anything we quilters are, it's resourceful.
Am I right?
Now you see it, now you don't!
I wanted a table runner for my Halloween table.
After a search online for coloring pages, I knew I was onto something.
It was the expression on the moon that sold me!
I used a high loft batting. I love the dimension it gives a project.
Backing up a bit.
All those friendship stars from my quilt above, are made with 1 1/2" squares.
I like to make those half square triangles a bit bigger and trim them down.
Here is my pile of scrap. I was not going to throw it away!
Oh no, not this fabric!
What to do, What to do???
You've seen me make thread fabric before...
Well, this made perfect "scrap fabric" fabric!
Which turned itself into a fun little mini quiltie!
Ahhh, the power of scraps or shards, I guess I should say.
You folks hit the nail on the head. Black Cat Crossing is the greatest!
I love, love, love it, and can't thank you enough for sponsoring this hop!
A hop that well...just wouldn't be the same without our delightfully Wicked Wendy at the helm, and of course our incredible Madame Samm, who has put her heart and soul into making this blog and all of us, the best community around! (whew that might be the longest sentence yet) You girls are just incredible.
Thanks so much for visiting me today.
I have just one other little thing to share.
This little 14" table topper was made from the last of the scraps of my precious
Black Cat Crossing fabric.
It can be yours!
Leave me a comment and I will pick my winner on Mon Oct 27.
I know it's a bit early, but you'll have it for Halloween then.
Also be sure you visit my fellow bloggers today.
They have cooked up some incredible projects to share!
