Be-Witching Quilt Group

It is our tradition to meet at Jayna's house for our October meeting because she is the Halloween Queen and her house is a Holloween wonderland! We had a great time and a great "Show and Tell" which I will share with you. This fun quilt was done by our hostess, Jayna. Love the great Halloween colors!

This cute "picnic quilt" is also Jayna's, fresh back from the quilter.
Candy showed us one of the three panels she had made of this pattern. She said  they were so quick and fun to make, she couldn't stop!

Check out the darling pillow that Candy made. We all LOVED the lamb with the pumpkin behind it.. SO CUTE!

Barb machine embroidered this darling baby announcement and had it framed for a family member.
Clever Margy bought this bag and then embellished it with this machine ebroidered scene in brown. Very cool!
Margy had made a hat for a friend going through Cemo, and decided  to make one for herself as well. It had a cute co-ordinating lining.
Anita shared this super cute table runner. The pattern and fabrics are so happy!
Anita also made this sweet flannel baby blanket.
Jayna's cats kept us well entertained all night! I hope your Autumn is going well. We are finally getting Fall appropriate weather and I love being able to stay in my Hoodie all day. I hope you will stop by again soon.  Love, Derrith

Pumpkin Hill Completed!

"Pumpkin Hill" is finally back from the quilter (who did a fantastic job) and up on the wall to celebrate Autumn.

It's my first fall themed quilt that I've done for my living room because I thought fall colors wouldn't go with my blue, red and yellow color scheme. Silly Me. It looks just fine.

Of course, if you have been following my blog, you know that I have sold my house and I really don't know what the color scheme will be in my new house, but it will all work out. I am at my daughter's house and her house is SO decorated for Halloween, it is inspiring. I have been a bit distracted lately, to say the least, and decorating has not been a priority. Thank you for visiting...I know I haven't had much to show lately. See you again soon. -Derrith

Pumpkin Pillow

I just finished this pillow for a friend. She visited this summer and found the 12 X 12 center of the pillow that was left over from a challenge my quilting group had. She loved it and ask that I make it into a pillow so I used orange wool for the borders and a striped flannel on the back. I'm so glad she wanted it or it would have sat in my sewing room forever!  Well, we accepted the offer on our house, so now we are looking for a new home. The saga continues.....
