  2. Quilt Hexi Bloom Wall Hanging – √ done
  3. Start piecing Baby Boy – Patchwork Elephant Quilt  – √ done
  4. Finish Piecing Winged Migration Quilt – √ done
  5. Fabric pull for RWB table runner– √ done

To-Do #1

After creating a pseudo kaleidoscope quilt block I thought I would try making a real one using Halloween themed fabrics in white, yellow and orange to give it a candy corn look.

It such a great feeling when your points line up! The orange fabric has spiders and the black background fabric has cat faces! The orange and yellow wedges form windmills that really pop against the black fabric.

To-Do #2

I finally finished my Hexie Blossom wall hanging! YAY 🙂

To-Do #3

I was able to get the elephant baby quilted pieced. I still need to do the blanket stitching and other details. Haven’t decided if I will add baby’s name or some other embroidery design.

To-Do #4

Winged Migration is quilt I started last year. Finally got the quilt top pieced and ordered the backing for it.

To-Do #4

I’ve been a bit obsessed with paper piecing lately. I really enjoy it and it’s something I can do while watching/listening to TV.

I used half rectangle triangles to create the spinning star.

  7. Hi Karla! You have really had it going lately. I love the candy corn table topper. It makes me wish the candy was available right now – yummy. Your Hexie Blossom hanging is so colorful and happy looking. Are you enjoying it at your home or is it for someone? My favorite, though, is the Winged Migration . . . I love every single thing about this piece. Fabulous. Thanks for linking up this week and good luck on the week ahead. ~smile~ Roseanne

  10. So many wonderful pieces! I love the elephant one! I used to be sort of addicted to candy corns (would even hoard them to have some post Halloween) so when I saw that first WIP my teeth started hurting – ha!
