Spooky Sewing

It’s only the first week of October, and I’m already gorging myself on Halloween candy…so delicious!  I especially love the mellowcreme pumpkins.  They’re made with honey so that makes them good for you, right? Right. Honey = natural = healthy.  That’s how I’m rationalizing it anyways…I’ll let you know how that is working out when it’s January and my pants don’t fit!

I’ve been working on some mini Halloween projects for some friends and their adorable babies.  I plan on sending a Halloween package complete with candy and Halloween books!

I’m making some mini quits that can be used as a wall hanging or even a spooky mat for all of that Halloween candy.  These are made with patterns from Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage Book.  If you haven’t picked up a copy, you really should!  It’s an amazing book–so many possibilities. You can grab a copy here.  The Farm Girl Vintage sew along is over, but if you haven’t started or are fashionably late (‘ahem, that would be me) you can still sew along!

The Patchwork Pumpkin block was, of course, a must for Halloween!

Next up is the Welcome Block from the Farm Girl Vintage book.  I really love this block–it’s a straightforward design, and it’s a great block to showcase adorable prints (again, aren’t those little bats adorable?!) I think so 🙂

I made both of these blocks in the 12″ version.  The Farm Girl Vintage book gives instructions for both 6″ and 12″ blocks.

One of these is ready to go, and hopefully I’ll get the other one finished over the weekend so they can be sent off to their new homes, where hopefully they’ll bring a little Halloween spirit!

Thanks for stopping by! I’m off to eat more candy corn and mellowcreme pumpkins!!
