it's NEVER to early to quilt for the holidays

26 June 2008

so i did a fun little project. it was a sew along with pat sloan. and it was super fun. i decided to use fall colors and fabrics. and this definitely put me in the fall spirit. {so much that my niece & i painted our nails a deep plum color last night!!!}

i think that this is an awesome little table runner/wall quilt. i can use the bright orange with plum side for halloween and then flip it over to the pumpkin, maple, acorn side for thanksgiving. i love multi purpose projects. don't you???

this measures 20 1/2 x 37 and i swear up and down that pat has the very best technique for flying geese units. yall should try it. i'm SO not intimidated by them anymore because she makes them SO simple.

check out her website. http://www.quiltershome.com/

so, with that being said, i'm off to play in my holiday fabrics.
bring on the pumpkins, hay bales, falling leaves, and scarecrows. i'm ready.

{and then snowflakes and hot chocolate with santa baby!!! i better stop before i quilt something christmas!!!}
