IT'S THAT FUN TIME OF YEAR


This cute Pumpkin is also from a Pumpkin Spice Espresso Goblin Kit and is available at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see the other cute kits that are available. The kit comes in a coffee container like the one you get when you purchase coffee for take out. Check it out.


You will notice two new buttons on my sidebar. Let me tell you about them. Margaret’s Hope Chest has agreed to provide a quilt for each child in the Grand Rapids, Michigan Public School system who is homeless during the Christmas season. Margaret's Hope Chest is looking for your help. The Hope Squared pattern is easy. Just make a quilt out of squares. Any size, any number, any color. Use up some scraps. Dig out your kid-themed fabrics and pair them with some bright solids. Please consider that all ages of children will be receiving these quilts-boys and girls. Base the size of your quilt on the size of the child you have in your mind as you create it. Please check out her blog and consider donating to this worthy cause. You may drop your quilts off or mail them to Margaret's Hope Chest, 630 Griswold SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49507.

The other button is for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Whether you consider joining the fun and displaying a quilt or not, you will still want to click on the site and see all the beautiful quilts that will be on display. Seeing other’s creations is worth the visit and the amount of inspiration you will receive. Click on the button on the sidebar for further details. The Festival is being held from Oct. 9 – 16th. During that time the button will lead you to how you can sign up to display your quilts. If you have any questions, go to that site to see Amy’s updates.

Designing Happy has a great tutorial for making Halloween Treat Bags.

Until next time - Happy Quilting
