Fun new Quilts to Inspire You

& get you into the mood for fall!

 I’m sitting here watching the birds swarm the feeders after a long hot summer.  The leaves are already turning gold…not sure if it is from the heat of summer or the beginning of a new season.  Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I love the warm summer days and cool evenings.  It is also is a time for me to start thinking of what projects I can work on as my time outdoors becomes shorter.  Here are just a few projects that might get you inspired.

I’m seeing Pink Elephants and It’s Not Even Noon!  Debbie took an old pattern, “Take 5”, to make this adorable quilt filled with all the things we love, Pink Elephants, dots, circles and bubbly!.  We have a kit available for this project.

Just in time for Halloween, “Scribble Monsters” from Clothworks.  This easy weekend project will remind you of being a kid again.  The fun characters look like they came right from a coloring book.  We have a kit available for this project. 

These fun pillows were made by Barbara Chaffin.  The book Scandinavian Stitches offers over 21 projects for every season!  I love the house and laundry on the clothesline.   Barbara Chaffin will be teaching this fun class this fall, “Pick a Pillow“.

One of our customers, Linda Gaither, made this cute Monster Pillow.  The pattern “Little Monsters” from one of my favorite designers, Don’t Look Now , includes directions for several different monster pillows or a full size quilt.

Come Fly with Me”  strips and flying geese.  Verlinda made this during a weekend trip to Texas.  A kit is available for this project.

  

“Weekend in Paris”, “Babette” and “Margeaux”  created by Mauri from the pattern “Bloom”.  Mauri will be teaching a class for “Blooming Possibilities ” this fall .

 Sandy Clapp made this fun quilt, “Year at a Glance”,  from the book “Big fun with a little fabric”.    The quilt features applique, piecing and embroidery.  A kit is available for this quilt.

 “It’s  Jungle Out There” and “Hoo’s In the Forest”, made by Peggy Nasson – fun new baby quilts for any child.
