Merry Monday!  I've had a merry time today working on my new fall projects for upcoming classes and also starting a new quilting project.  Debbie (our quilt instructor extraordinaire) taught us a new block yesterday and I decided it would be the perfect block to use up some of my older Halloween stash.  I am determined to get some fabric off the shelves and put to good use.  I got three of the blocks done and now have bunches more in various stages.  This will be a quickie project that I know I will enjoy using at Halloween.
I have no clue what this block is called but I assume some sort of pinwheel or twister name.  I missed that part of the class.  Works up quickly and great for a scrappy assortment of fabrics.

I think I feel relieved that my huge Civil War project is complete and I can now work on some other things without guilt.  Like finishing my large house quilt that has three blocks done and got put aside..........or the 100 crazy quilt blocks I started for a king size quilt.........40 more to go............

Classes tomorrow and Wednesday so a busy time this week.  We're doing the Sewing Bee project tomorrow and the Farmer's Market mat on Wednesday.  Still room if you'd like to join in the fun.

Hope your Monday was good and productive. 


  1. I like the Halloween fabric in the Twister Quilt that you are working on.

  2. Thank you so much. I don't have anything quilty that's Halloween. This is a fun and simple block that our quilt teacher shared with us. Almost done inbetween trying to finish class models.
