Fall Quilties & Antiques

September 11th, 2011 | Posted by Emma in Inspiration | Quilting | Uncategorized

It felt like summer today…even too hot to mow, yet I was pretending it was Autumn. Because it’s on the way you know!

I worked on some new stuff for Halloween and fall. The most fun was altering the Easter bunny pattern to be some cute little ghosties! What do you think? They’re very huggable. I wish photos could show you how squishy they are! I may have to get one of my boys to do some posing with them.

I also drew a new Halloween quiltie design and a Thanksgiving one (still in progress).

Spooky works in both white on black and black on orange. Conal says he wants one with a lime green border, with orange on black, that sounds like it would be fun too!

I really had fun with that patchwork border on the orange one…to make the best use of that vintage Halloween print fabric by Moda.

Anyway, not all of them are listed in my shop yet, but some are and more will be soon, along with some oldies but goodies brought out for fall! Gotta love this Jack O’ Lantern, don’t you?

Also fitting in with the fall colors is this beautiful basket/trunk I bought for $5 at the Antique Show my boys and I went to in Valley Junction this morning. I can always get them to go to events in Valley Junction by just reminding them that Nan’s Nummies (their favorite candy store ever) is there!

I really should have thought to use this trunk as a prop in my photo shoot of products this afternoon! I’m sure I will for the next one, pretty isn’t it?!
