Fall in the Air

I made this table topper for my sister, who is working at CROW animal center up in Sanibel Island, Florida and has been lacking the time to do fall decorating.

You can find the pattern here. It is very easy to make if you have a charm pack at hand.

The binding is a bit of three fabrics that I had left over.

Halloween Table Runner

To get everyone in my house in the spooky mood for Halloween, I made this quilted table runner out of a few fat quarters I picked up on sale at JoAnn's.

It's a pretty simple pattern I found here and which can be adapted for any season, any colors you'd like.

There it is without the border. I chose a mossy green for it and a fall themed back fabric so that I can flip it over when Halloween passes. Two runners in one!

And here it is with the many, many ornaments.


First Attempt

This was my first ever attempt at making a quilt. I used the tutorial from the fabulous blog Diary of a Quilter, and, though it isn't perfect by any means, it's given me the confidence to keep working on quilts. It truly is a satisfying thing to see it spread out on my lap.
