Lady Bug Quilt

This sweet little quilt was made for a friend of mine. I found these lady bugs at Joann's and had to buy them. The lady bugs were cut out using my Cricut machine. I found that it was rather difficult to use the Cricut for this purpose and ended up just using the image cut out on cardstock to trace onto the heat n bond. Even though I couldn't get them to cut out, I still got really good pieces from it, and hand cutting it didn't take long. Here are a few pics. The back is made with microfleece fabric. My mom and I have been using Microfleece on the past few projects and found that it makes a really fun quilt!

Completed Halloween Project

So I took the pattern for Happy Jack and added a little more to him and turned it into a pillow. The intent was to put it into a contest at a local craft store, but then they hired me so I was disqualified! Bummer! So here is my creation! I even contemplated putting some battery operated lights on him too, but there wasn't enough time for that!

Meet Jack!!

I love Halloween! And I love Fall. Today has been one of the first gloomy days of the season, and very fitting since it is the first day of school. Since I've been in the Autumn mood I decided to put together this little Jack-o-lantern 12 x 12 mini quilt. I've been having fun sewing this one on my tabletop quilter! He's so cute that I couldn't resist! These are so easy that I ended up cutting out 4 different sets. Hopefully I will have something in my Etsy shop soon. **wink**
