September Sky, Spider & The Fly!

September Sky, Spider & The Fly!


It’s time, it’s time, it’s more than time!
The middle of the month arrives so quickly – one day we turn from August to September, and then BAM!  It’s the middle of the month!
But with the middle of September comes the desire to be tucked up cozy inside, playing with fabric and planning on how I am going to happily quilt myself though the fall and winter months ahead.
I can’t stop the seasons from getting colder, so I may as well dig in and enjoy it!
Are you with me?

There is something about a quilt wafting in a breeze, isn’t there?

If you have been with me a while (I’ve been blogging here since 2005!!) you will remember that bag of purple/black bonus triangles that came home with me after a teaching trip.

You will remember when I needed more of that SAME black background fabric, long out of print and how a simple post gave me enough in the mail to finish the quilt AND use the gifted fabrics as the black inner border.  

I love these star blocks, easily made from Scrap User’s System sizes – and how the purples go from a royal purple to red violet.

Spider & The Fly is full of Spooky Fun!

Combine your favorite Halloween fabrics with other oranges, neutrals, blacks and greys from your stash for an autumn quilt Sew Fun to MAKE!

My Essential Triangle Tool for half-square and quarter-square triangles.

Cut matched pairs of triangles from strip sets saving time and increasing accuracy – uses LESS fabric in the process!

I used my Essential Triangle Tool for the triangles in BOTH quilts, and it is a tool I know I will use again and again and again as I LOVE triangles in my quilts.

It’s time to start in on the fall projects – to pull out those oranges, golds and browns and dig in to some comfort sewing with the upcoming change of seasons!

I hope this inspires you to dig in to some fall sewing!
There are also some other BIG projects going on behind the scenes that I can’t share just yet – you know what happens at the end of October, don’t you?  Yes.  THAT!!
My ankle continues to get better every day.  Today I am even wearing shoes. It will be a while before I can take another long hike – but getting around is improving and it feels good to be a bit more mobile.
Okay, this is a lot for a Wednesday morning post.
What do yo have going on today?
