Fall is such a beautiful time of the year.

Today was the first day I wore a vest.  I guess that makes it official.

I made this little table runner, from the book

Fast And Furious For The Holidays.
by Gudrun Erla (GE Designs)

I love her books and patterns. 
Her projects are quilt as you go.  So, when you are done piecing,
you just need to bind!
( I did add a little extra quilting to make pumpkin lines)

The 'curve' comes from a folded triangle that you 'roll back' and stitch down.

The book has other great projects!

I decided we needed to decorate our 'naked' pumpkins.

So, 4 yards of rick-rack, a couple of yards of black and white ribbon, about 10 minutes and look how stinkin' cute this is!!

I just pinned one end of the rick-rack, went under the pumpkin, pinned the other end.  Repeat 3 times.
Tie a cute bow, and you have the cutest pumpkin, ever!

We are all in love with Chevrons.

The shop has chevrons in many sizes and many colors.
I have made a Chevron quilt, which I love.

I ordered a new pattern a few weeks ago

Super cute.
Just what every baby wants.

So, I asked Lisa if she would like to make a shop sample.
We went right to work, selecting fabric for this cutie.

She made it over a weekend,
and passed it off to Jenny to quilt.
Check out Jenny's quilting.

There is no way a baby is going to spit up on this precious quilt!!

Thanks Lisa and Jenny for helping make the shop look fabulous!!  xoxo j
