PUMPKIN FEST - ISLAND BATIK

Here in Texas you can definitely tell that Fall is in the air.

I truly love this time of year.

Several years ago I started making

Kim Schaefer's Calendar Quilts.

I made about five of them and now my daughter in law has them.

So I decide to continue to make them


This is her pumpkin one.


                                       Here is mine using the awesome Island Batik Fabrics


I kinda made it my own...tweeked it to my own liking.


At the risk of repeating myself, Island Batik fabrics are so wonderful to use in applique, they hardly ravel at all which makes it so nice.

Here are some of my fall patterns that you can find on craftsy.


Scarecrow Kitchen Towel and Pot Holder


GOBBLE GOBBLE


Once again using the Accuquilt Go dies but the applique patterns are included.

Pumpkiness


This is one of my favorites using the awesome Island Batik Fabrics.  It is hanging on my mother's door where she lives.

My Pumpkin Runneth Over

This is a free pattern as well.

Squirrel Pickings

I hope you all are enjoying this fantastic weather....time to get outside and "smell the roses"

  6. I have not made that one, but I've used batiks for a few of her others and loved working with them. You are so right! They are the perfect choice for machine Applique projects! Your patterns are always so delightful! XO
