Welcome to the next step along the Eerie Nights trail.
As many of you know, we like to carry Halloween fabrics year-round. It’s almost – no, it definitely is – more important to us than carrying winter themed fabrics.
But, as even more of you know, we are not terrific decorators.
So for this hop, it was critical that we used a pattern that could be displayed from September through November.
This pattern uses the mini version of the Quick Curve Ruler, which I have come to love deeply.
Here’s my first pumpkin! This pattern takes a wide variety of neutrals and oranges, so I used lots of small pieces from my stash. Unfortunately the rest of my darling pumpkins aren’t completed yet. They’ve had to take the back seat lately, because of my new job. The rest of my pieces are still in the halfway stage, waiting to be combined with the center of the pumpkin into their final design.
The beauty of this ruler is that you don’t need any pins to sew the curve. Which is good, because I don’t pin things. Win win!
When I’m ready to quilt it, I’ll use some of my favorite batting, from Quilter’s Dream. I love the Dream Green since it’s made out of recycled pop bottles, but I haven’t had a bad experience with any of their batting that I’ve used. For this blog hop, those awesome #battgirls donated some Dream Batting!
