Laura Williams created this wonderful table topper - perfect for the first of Autumn through Thanksgiving.  The pattern is The Pumpkin Patch by Kimberbell Designs.  Laura added some tendrils at the stems of each of her pumpkins.  Love this!  Thank you Laura for sending this picture of your finished project.  We always like to see how our kits turned out.  Beautiful work.

 Kris Allen's Modern Plus Quilt features the fabrics Simply Style designed by V and Co.  Such a fresh palette! Kris pieces and quilts her quilts.  We love this modern Plus Quilt.  Thanks Kris for sharing this with us.  Very inspirational!  Kris has some great quilt ideas that she shares on her blog.  Here is the link


Kris Allen also created this fun Giraffe and Circus Zoo theme quilt.  What you are seeing is the front and the back of the same quilt.  Kris found two quilt ideas that she loved and made one for each side!   Amazing!  We love this idea Kris.  Great color palette again.  Thank you for send us these pictures.


Ainslie Brunt hand pieced her Hearts, Hearts, Hearts Quilt using the English Paper Piecing Method.   I had to ready that twice - yes hand pieced.  "450-odd triangles, and 10 months of work! I must be crazy" says Ainslie.  No not crazy - this is gorgeous work.  And lots of it.   Perhaps we could all  use a class in Paper Piecing.  Those triangles making up the hearts are only about 4".   Simply Amazing!


  A close up of the fun prints that Ainslie used.  This pattern was created by Sandra Farnsworth.  We have seen this made up in a few colors other than Valentines - Love it.  Ainslie made this quilt for a wedding gift.  Thank you Ainslie for sharing your amazing talents with us!


Alison Shilinsky made this lovely Sweet Sweet Emma Quilt.  Such perfect piecing!  It was made with the Emma fabric collection by Cathy Heck (Which by the way is out of print and Alison had to do some tracking to find the fabrics).   Isn't this a sweet little girl quilt!  We love the bright pink and green mix.  The pattern was designed by Kristin Andersen.  Thank you Alison for sharing this quilt with us.  A perfect quilt for that fun striped wall!

Ilze created this wonderful jacket with the Urban Zoologie lining.  Ilze is a very creative seamstress and has some great childrens clothing items for sale in her Etsy Shop called yellOkids.  You will definitely want to visit her shop and see all of her creations!  Thank you Ilze for sharing your project with us.  It is fabulous! 
One of my favorite items in her shop is a darling striped T-shirt with a fox applique.   Link to yellOkids


Amanda Blythe made sweet cheery quilt called Love Letters - a Missouri Star pattern from their magazine with Fons and Porter- Quilting Quickly.  I love all those cute envelopes.  This would be so darling as a table topper.  Thank you Amanda!  We love it!



Amanda Jo designed and created this T-Shirt Quilt.  All those fun memorable t-shirts are joined together in a random pattern with the Cherry Red Pins print from Pat Sloan's Bobbins and Bits collection.  Amanda is Sandra's daughter.


Here is a close up of some of her fun Tees.  You can also see the swirl quilting pattern done by her sister Leisha Farnsworth of Quilting It.  Great job ladies!  or should I say Sisters!  We love you both!



Leisha has been sewing  some wonderful quilt projects this summer.  This Mod Olives pattern is so striking in the Botanique fabrics by Joel Dewberry.  Isn't this gorgeous?  It was made using the Quick Curve Ruler.  The Quick Curve Ruler and fabrics can be found at Sisters & Quilters! The tutorial is on sewkindofwonderful's blog under Mod Olives.   We will post or link more of this quilt when it is quilted.  Thanks again Leisha!



Sandra finished her beautiful Home is Where the Haunt Is Halloween wall hanging.  This pattern was designed by Kimberbell Designs.  We love all the fund sayings and different textures in this quilt.  Notice the fun broom and mummy.  This quilt makes me happy.  Sandra - we love your choice of colors and fabric prints.  Great combination!


Here is the close up of Leisha's creative quilting.  You can click on the picture for a close up look at all the fun patterns in each block.  Beautiful quilting Leisha!  You can find more of Leisha's work on her facebook page Quilting It.



Scrappy Halloween table toppers are some of our favorites.  We love the mix of patterns and textures. This pattern Pumpkin Patches was a free quilt pattern designed by Renee Nanneman for Andover Fabrics.  Click Here to see the full quilt pattern.
This quilt is just 9 patch blocks but sew 9 of them together - 3 x 3 to form a larger block.  The smaller squares are just 2 1/2"  - could be made from jelly roll strips.  This quilt is made with just 4 large blocks. I love this quilt on my dining table.  So bright and fun!



And if you have even more scraps - here is another easy Halloween Table Runner idea using scraps with black. I used a fun print on the back - so I can use either side.  The printes are charm pack squares cut in half I believe.  Notice the fun spider webs quilted in the black areas by Leisha. Original charm pack friendly pattern by Sweetwater fabrics.  



Remember the Color Block Pouches from the pattern V and Co?  Well we finally made up some kits with the Pattern, Linen, and pellon.  You just need to provide the 10" fabric squares.  These little bags would be awesome for Holiday or Wedding gifts.  Click Here to see the kits



Kristin made this fun little scrappy navy Hugs quilt for Baby Charlotte.   She made just 20 blocks - 4 blocks x 5 rows for a baby size quilt (and one block was the kiss block) .   This quilt is Layer Cake friendly so it is a great way to use up those left over 10" squares.  The Hugs Quilt Pattern was designed by Fig Tree and Company. Click Here
And of course this was quilted by the amazing Leisha Farnsworth. Don't you love the little flower in the kiss block - it mimic's the larger flower in the Hugs block.


What are you sewing for Halloween?  Please send us some of your pictures!
