More orange and black…

Made from my Halloween quilt scraps.  I cut squares 2.5", and the whole thing measures about 17"x 21".    It’ll be cute on a wall. IMG_1227 Or on a side table with a creepy pumpkin head man. IMG_1234   Did I mention I’m really sick of orange and black?  Yes…I am.  Luckily I’m out of orange and black scraps so I don’t feel guilty throwing them away.  Now I’m off to finish picking the airheads out of our candy and hoard them.  :)

    super cute. I love orange and black, no matter what time of year they always make me think of Halloween — they're some of my favorite colors.

    Love this quilt…it has even inspired me to do a Halloween colored quilt!

    I don't know how Halloween snuck up so fast — I don't even have ANY decorations out yet, let alone finishing (or to be honest STARTING) my cute, cute Halloween wallhanging. *sigh* I tend to run a few months behind at all times….

    Cute, cute quilts, both large and small!

    There isn't enough orange fabric in the world for me! I used the Erin Mcmorris leaf dot to back my first ever quilt – I love that fabric!

  20. beccy October 30, 2009 at 5:59 pm #

    … And I love both your orange and black quilts!

    Please do tell how you hang your quilts. Big or small, I'd love to know.

    I just had to tell you that I made a treat tote bag for my son the other day – – your instructions were great! Sewing, for me, is the easy part…it's following directions that I have a hard time with and your directions and pictures were great. (I posted a picture of it, though don't look too close – I'm calling it my practice bag and will soon make another for my new little baby boy and will probably make a better one for my son. I don't like how my candy corn turned out).

    Thanks again for the tutorial – I love that these will store so efficiently over the years and are so, so cute. NOW…I want to make some aprons for my nieces and a hooded bath towel for my new nephew…so if you could kindly figure out an easy way to do it…then post the instructions…(just kidding-your busy chasing a baby and growing a baby. That was me last Halloween too!)

    2 1/2" squares are adorable regardless of what colour they are!

    Super cute! Is that a Longaberger basket on the shelf under the table? Love those things too!
