I'm not sure why but I seem to have more Halloween decorations than any other holiday, maybe even Christmas! I think it might be because there are just such cute things to make and they're so easy! I'm pretty excited about this blog hop (a big thank you to Wendy and to Madame Samm for giving this one to us!) and can't wait to show you what I've made. :)
I started out thinking I was only going to make one thing. Just one. Because I have lots of Halloween decorations and not much time...that's what I told myself. I started out with a quilt - this strip quilt is similar to the sock monkey quilt pattern Carol from Just Let Me Quilt has on Craftsy. I added borders to mine and I didn't do the quilt-as-you-go method (which I think she did).
Okay then I just got carried away. That happens to everyone, right? I loved this pattern...I mean, it's wool so what's not to love?
And I was pretty sure one of my daughters needed a table runner so I made this one I call Black Cats on Parade.
Okay, I was done. Over it. Really, really, really done. Except for this one problem. I had so many leftover scraps from the quilt I started with. And I felt like I needed to use up those scraps. I mean wouldn't you need to use up those scraps? So here's how they ended up...three pillows. :)
Okay, I'm done. Really. Done. But you're not! You have more blogs to visit....and you're going to love what you see!
