HALLOWEEN ALREADY?

Today I ran up to Office Max to have my drawing copied and increased in size for my story quilt.  On the way home, I noticed the thermometer at the bank said 94 degrees.  Yikes!  Not exactly the time of year to be thinking of Halloween.  But maybe thinking about it will make you feel cooler or at least forget about the heat for a minute or two.  The above panel is Trick or Treat by Moda and you can pick it up today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Maybe if you talk nicely to Robbie she will tell you how she made this adorable spider (is that an oxymoron?).  
This panel is also by Moda.  These panels are fantastic and you will find the coordinating fabrics in at the shop too.
Just in case you are not ready to think about that time of year, how about these luscious fabrics.  They are part of that Floralicious line by Bernatex. that I told you about here.  These are my colors and a must have for me.

Ever wonder how to make a block keeper?  Tammy at Treadle Works has a great tutorial for you. 

Stay Positive!

I am not a fan of Halloween or spiders, even Halloween spiders, but the panel is as sweet as can be. Love the Floralicious line, so bright and cheery. And thank you for the link to another great blog.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

Wow. It was hot here yesterday, but we didn't hit those temps! 94 is quite a toasty one!

Absolutely it's an oxymoron - ugh I don't like spiders! But the fabric is very cute! Love that last one too. Can't believe it was 94 on your side of the state - although it FELT like it here with the humidity!

I really dig the floralicious fabric! When I was in Utah, I saw they had Halloween stuff out already, too. It's all cute, but I am just not ready to deal with that yet!
