Hi Everybody!

I received my edition of Quiltmaker Sept/Oct 2020 and YAY!!

What a sweet quilt on the cover. I want to make that one. ( look at the bottom  of this post for a chance to win a copy)

My project isn’t as sweet…but it’s really FUN!!


FUN!! right? Kind of like a Pac-Man version of Halloween fun. I was so excited for this quilt.

I made this with American Made Brand Solids by Clothworks.

So in my typical fashion…sometimes something doesn’t work out as originally planned BUT something else emerges. That is what happened here. I was playing and getting frustrated with something and cut my design in half…and looksie what happened. I loved it so much I submitted it straight away.

I rarely do drawings or contests on my site…and clearly I am terrible at follow through. I forgot I was supposed to choose some winners from the last publications for a copy of the magazine.

So the winners from last week are :

Linda Bingham and Krissydoo from IG.


Just email me your info and I will get those copies sent out. :)


I happen to have 2 extra copies of Quiltmakers Sept-October 2020 issues as well. So I will do another drawing.

For a chance to win comment on this post with your favorite Halloween memory, costume or candy. I love getting to know all of you. I share so much of myself. I love hearing about you. If you don’t celebrate Halloween ..please just share a fall memory or treat.

    I love Fall! It’s by far my favorite season. I love the warmth of it. The brilliant sunny days and colder nights. The leaves turning, getting the fireplace going, I love everything about it! :)

    Oh, gosh, when I was just a tyke, I looooved horses. Still do, but am smart enough now to know they are unaffordable. Back then, everything was horsey. Even Halloween. I built a horse head out of paint stir sticks, cardboard, string and yarn. It fit entirely over my head and shoulders and I made myself a tail and hooves to go with. Spray painted that baby a dappled gray and kept it, and wore it every chance I could, for YEARS! Loved it till it fell apart! Thanks for the blast from the past! Love your sweet little wall rug!

    Last Halloween with my daughter in 1977, she was dressed in a hot pink
    onesies covered in cheap jewelry and a large sun hat with a pumpkin full of candy. my favorite candy had to be the little orange over sweet pumpkins

    I loved my leaped costume that my mom made me when I was around 6 years old. I love Halloween still and can’t wait to make this wall hanging it is so cute.

    I was trick or treating with my friends. We were old enough to go without our parents. We went to so many houses, we were tired. We decided to go in a fenced field, rest a minute and check out our treat bags. All of a sudden we heard a noise behind us. Seems we were in a cow field and the biggest bull ever was checking us out!!! We were over the fence in seconds with the bull right behind us! After that I decided I was too old for trick or treating.

    We lived in the country so we did not have trick or treaters. When I married and moved to town I was so excited to give out candy to the kids.

    One year when my son was about 5or 6 we were short of cash and needed a costume. Well I dug in my scrap stash and the only thing I found to make him was a little convict striped outfit hat and all. I put his #on his shirt and made him a ball and chain out of a styrofoam ball and pipe cleaners.He won 1st place!So when his son came along guess what he wanted for his costume ? You guessed it and he won 1st place with his also.
