My post has nothing to do with what I am showing you except for the fact my husband turned the heater on for the first time this morning.
I noticed when I got up that it was cold, had to run to the bathroom and then back under the covers. I don't mind the cold like I use to.
I also noticed all of the Halloween decorations as I was reading blogs this morning so decided to show you some of mine!
I just love this candle mat.
If you have a go cutter or not these are really easy to make. You fold your paper in half and then in fourths and then place the paper with the folded side up (no raw edges) side towards the stem making sure that you have some of the pumpkin showing like this.
Or if you don't have an Accuquilt Go Fall Medley die you can just draw a pumpkin on your folded paper remembering to leave part of your side pumpkin off.
Here it is cut.
Here is what it will look like
You can use a fusible before you cut always following the directions or you can glue this on afterwards. The Lapel stick are fabulous for this. Sometimes when you glue you might get a little pucker but most times you can smooth it out with your finger.
Then you place it on a 9 1/2" to 10" square, you can blanket stitch or straight stitch around the pumpkins (you can do this before you sandwich your candle mat or after). I always choose to do this after, it just makes it so much faster to blanket stitch it through all of the layers and then you are finished no added quilting needed.
Bind and quilt as desired.
So here is a fun Topper I made last year. You can find the pattern here:
Nothing makes me want to bake more than cold weather so here is a free pattern and you can find it here
Here is another free pattern:
