~ lovely autumn morning...

I am happy that Ozzy decided I should take him for a walk earlier than usual this morning. What a picture perfect day! I took the opportunity to snap a photo of my little halloween sewing project and share it with you. Since my halloween costume making services are not required by either of my "clients" -- a.k.a. Nicholas & Sofia...

~ halloween 2005...

 ...this year, I was feeling the void. To compensate, I decided to make a small quilt using a free pattern from my favorite online fabric store. It really wasn't the free pattern that grabbed me -- it was this video tutorial taught by the lovely Kimberly Jolly herself!  Jelly Roll Jam video tutorial

Here is the photo of what I have completed.  It is the 3 six strip sections.  I did this yesterday in about 90 minutes.  It would have taken me about 30 minutes less, if I didn't have issues with my bobbin thread (resolved), and a break to prep dinner :-)  Today, I need to make a run to the store for non-flaking spray starch, and, thread.  Hopefully I can get that done and back in time to starch, press, and, cut the strip sections into blocks.

Stay tuned :-)


  1. I could take this weather for 365 days! Gorgeous here too! Your quilt is going to be another masterpiece I can see. Don't forget to post the finished project!

    Hugs to all! Mom
