Halloween Table Runner

Last year I made up a random set of blocks from some Halloween material I had laying around.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them, considered growing them into a quilt, but I already have a Halloween quilt, and how many does a person need, really...

So, I threw on a border, grabbed some backing and used a bright orange binding...

I love this backing fabric... got it in December or so last year at Joanns for about $2/ yard.

9/21 WIP

Its been over a month since I posted anything.... but I have been very busy, sewing flags for Band, sewing more flags, hemming costumes, sewing flags, and of course... holding fundraisers. Did I mention sewing flags?


Nothing I can share, as it was all items for the Band show which is super secret until they take the field in the first competition.

New Projects:

I snuck in working on this between flags to stay sane... Its a disappearing 9 patch using various prints from four different Anna Maria Horner fabric lines. I hope to add it to my stack of completed tops today.


I dug out my D9P leaves quilt pieces which consisted of a bunch of 5 inch leaf print blocks and have 1/4 done and another 1/4 in the works.

And I found this in the closet, something I made with scraps last year and have been messing around deciding if I want to turn it into a quilt or a table runner.
