Fall Decorations on the Eerie Nights Blog Hop

Hello everyone!

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.

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!

  1. I like the pumpkin quilt! I am more inclined to make something if it can stay up for a longer time, so that is the perfect fall decoration!

  2. This quilt is so fun- love the mix of white with orange pumpkins! I also tend to decorate more for fall, but my kids do love Halloween specific decorations.

  3. I soooooo love Halloween! In we have a fear factor party with the grands every year! Winner get hard cold cash! It’s tomorrow! I can’t wait. I do love the pumpkin pattern. Quilters dream is awesome! Thanks for the chance….

  4. Oh, yes, so cute! I guess I’ll have to break down and get this ruler. I’ve debated long enough. =) Thank you for sharing your darling pumpkin idea. I LOVE QD! I can never get enough of it. Normally, I use the 100% neutral Select, but it doesn’t matter. I’ll use anything they make, it’s ALL wonderful!

  5. Your pumpkins are delightful! And thanks for sharing how you made them. I wasn’t familiar with the curved ruler before I read your post. I can see why you love it deeply!

  6. Cute pattern. I saw it in a quilt shop and wondered how the ruler would work. Sounds like it makes it easier to make those cute pumpkins.

  7. Your neutral pumpkins give this “legs” to last past Halloween and all through autumn. Which is great, because it is such a lovely quilt.

  8. Cute Project, can’t wait to see the finished pattern. It is a nice pattern because as you say you needed something to use from Sept to November and pumpkins are perfect since they are so Fall Oriented. A huge thank you for participating in Seams To Be Sew events this year…

  9. Such a clever idea with the curve rulers. And I love the fact that you can extend the length of your quilts display time. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Love your quilt! Great idea to do white pumpkins as well. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

  11. I have to love a quilt that says Halloween and fall at the same time. That way I wouldn’t feel guilty leaving my Halloween quilt up until Thanksgiving! Jadahlgr at Yahoo dot Com
