Halloween Sewing Fun

Franken PillowI live in a cookie cutter neighborhood of townhouses and make it my mission to make out home standout, whether it’s landscaping, flowers or hanging fun stuff on the porch. I walk by others who have done the same and their homes just feel like a fun place to be!


I like to change things up from year to year, so I’m going to hang some of my fun wall hangings outside this year!FLAT_TrickorTreat

Check out this Trick or Treat bunting or swag you can hang on your fence or across a railing, or this Welcome door or wall hanging – it’s going on the wall outside my door, and Franken Pillow in my Adirondack chair just because he’s so adorable!

BeggarsBounty_2Maybe something special inside or out in this Beggar’s bounty table runner?

Sometimes just a little something special can bring a smile to welcome guests into your home and adorable trick or treater to your door!


Happy Halloween Quilting!

  1. For outside decoration I have used quilts short term and where they are protected. Short term means 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. approx. And, protected means under a courtyard cover or porch cover. They still fade out pretty fast.

    Then there is the old fashioned Barn Quilt. Lowes sells 2′ x 2′ plywood, ready to paint.

    You can do a variety of block patterns and colors so you can change them out every month or so with the season or holiday.

  2. I have been sewing for almost 50 years and love being able to create something you cannot find in a store. I have just started quilting the last year and I am finding it creative in a very different way. It is a challenge in a totally different way. I love color and I look forward to making quilts for every holiday. I am currently working on a “Circle of Friends” quilt and will probably never make another anytime soon. Its beautiful but its only my second quilt and too many round seams for a “newby”. Fortunately, I have never been easily discouraged. Just what I needed….another hobby!!!!!
