Twice a year, Jan & Diane run away to the Cabin in Idaho for a sewing fest & relaxation.
This year our husbands came up with us for the first 3 days. We visited Shoshone Falls in Twin Falls, pretty cool even in the late summer.
As soon as the men leave. . .WAHOO ! Break out the fabric! It’s time to sew!
Our goal was to complete 2, yes 2, king size quilts from the Halloween 1904 pattern.
Our plan of attack: Jan machine appliquéd – 102 stars – 6 pumpkins -12 leaves & vines -2 moons.
Meanwhile, Diane is piecing 768 black/cream half square triangles. (You did read that right, 768 and not using triangles on a roll).
16 Jane Austin movies and 5 days later (with a couple 16 plus hour days of straight sewing, a bit abusive but we figure that if we ever get confined to a work house sewing all day, we at least know we can do it) there they are, 2 of the most gorgeous Halloween quilts.
Now to save our pennies for the machine quilting.
Stop into the shop to see it and pick up your pattern. We also have a great selection of fabric’s that could be used. Or try adding some yummy wool. You could make it with only four blocks if you’re not up to the challenge of a 102 x 102 size quilt.
Hmmm what to sew next year? Happy quilting and may your bobbin never run out.
