Getting Ready..

Fall/Autumn is one of my favourite seasons to make quilts. I found this pattern many years ago when I was first starting. It is a fused piece for the appliqué with a mix of piecing.

Another fused piece, these are hand button hole stitched.

The turkey was from a magazine and the base from another source.

Several years ago this was a free wool appliqué pattern a blog hop. Sorry I don't recall the designer.

My original design from a class with Jane Sassaman, I called it October Weekend with Jane.

This pattern is called Holiday Baskets by Cheri Saffiote I call mine Where's Jack?

This witch's delight was designed by my friend Ethel Snow for a guild workshop. I had fun using different fabrics for the final borders. All the pumpkin stems are 3-D, I had fun adding some leaf and candy buttons.

I saw this pattern driving down to San Diego, unfortunately the shop didn't have a copy of it, but found it before I got back home. I made a few changes, I flipped the crescent moon and changed the bottom of the ghost.

Combination of piecing with fused details.

This guy's tail is 3-D, green beads for eyes. Prairie points for the tops of the picket fence; every picket is a different fabric.

Hi buddy on the other side.

Couldn't resist adding the buttons.

Had some fun adding the spider web. The spider has a pin backing on it.

Backing is an Alexander Henry fabric I think.

I renamed the pattern Three Amigos.

Added a bit of spider web fabric
