A little bit of Pumpkin

October Newsletter
Quote of the month “Reuse traditional themes in new ways”
Even though fall begins in September, I think of October as the real beginning of autumn. It really is a short season before Winter begins in earnest. Why not make something happy and bright to cheer you on before Winter arrives. For the month of October I am offering my two pumpkin patterns, Pumpkin and Three Pumpkins, on sale for $5 each. Buy the whole kit and make your project quickly to brighten and decorate your home. I also used the Three Pumpkins kit to make a fun table runner that will grace your table in no time. Besides the kit, you will need another 1 yard of fabric to finish the table runner project.
I will be teaching a fusing class, JOY, at IQF in Houston this year.

If you are going to the show, this is a fun class that you can finish in time to have it on your wall or front door by the Holidays. It measures 18″ x 18″ when finished, with a fused binding no less. It is a pre-fused class working with my gorgeous hand dyed fabrics. It can’t get much easier than having the fabrics all ready to cut and fuse together. Come join us for a little JOY in the afternoon of November 3rd.
This is one of my favorite quilt shows. Laura Wasilowski and I will have our booth there too. Be sure and stop in at Booth  #914
The show runs from November 2-6, 2016.

IQF Houston

International Quilt Festival in Houston.

As I said, Laura Wasilowski and I always have a booth at IQF in Houston. This year is no different. We are in booth #914. We will be there with lots of great hand dyed cotton, silk, cheesecloth, velvet and thread. I will also have ALL of my patterns there including Falling Leaves, the pattern below. This pattern will premier at IQF Houston. This is a PIECED pattern using freezer paper templates to create perfect curved seams. You will get both versions of the quilt in the pattern.
Emerging Leaves
Bright spring leaves on a warm background gives the feeling of spring leaves emerging in the forest – Emerging Leaves ( 20″ x 14″ finished size ). Making this simple yet vibrant wall quilt is an easy & fun project. The hand dyed fabric kit for this elegant design consist of 1/2 yard of warm earth toned brown for the background and 1/2 yard of luscious cotton/silk blend blackened rainbow striped fabric.YUMMY is the only word to describe this design.
