Are you ready?


Halloween is fast approaching!



All the ghosts and goblins are at the ready . . . all the treats have been purchased and bagged.

This quilt needs to be quilted – can’t really see that happening before Saturday. Sure would be nice to finish off . . . it’s only been in this state for three years now. I dragged it out to try and guilt myself into getting started on it, but so far things have been too busy or I’m just not guiltable any more.



I read an article the other day that the new color trend at Quilt Market this year was purple. I find myself right in the middle of working on a new quilt that just happens to have a tonne of purple in it – you can only see a little corner of it there in the photo, but really there is heaps of purple in this quilt!



The binding and backing fabric arrived for the quilt I’m making for a Christmas gift – so now it is ready for machine quilting as well. So that is a Halloween quilt and a Christmas quilt that need done – good luck to me!



Oh, this book arrived from Amazon the other day and I’m finding it just a little too interesting. My husband can’t understand the appeal of little quilt blocks and how that could be anywhere near as absorbing as I can make it. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the intricacies of block construction – this most definitely gets a 10 out of 10 rating from me. Ah! No wonder I’m not getting anything done . . .

‘til next time,

Hi Marlene, cute blog posting...I'm interested to see the rest of this quilt that has all of the purple in it - I love purple and line green - what a fresh and great combination...

I too have a seasonal quilt - my Easter one that same as you has been unfinished and cute for about 3+ years now...hmm better get these done hey.

From what I could see the quilts look great! Even if you don't finish the Halloween quilt, just working on it would make one feel a part of the festivities. That's interesting that the up and coming color is purple. I've never used it much but will have to consider it. Sounds fun actually.
