Cute Halloween Table Runner

Today I thought I would share with you this really cute Halloween table runner that we have on display this month!

The pattern is called “Ms. Bindweed’s Boots.”  The table runner’s finished size is 15.5” wide and fits a table up to 76” long with a 15” drop.  The adorable witch’s boots hang off of both ends of the table runner and the pattern gives you the chance to add a lot of charm with the details:

New Fall Fabrics

Now that Fall is officially here, I’m starting to crave pumpkin everything!  Pumpkin candles, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie….

Our weather will be turning colder this week and it will start to feel like fall outside.  Inside, we have some great new fall flavored fabrics on the shelves. 

This is Fall Fun from  Wilmington Prints – check out those adorable owls.  I also love the two leaf prints on the left.  How ‘bout a new table topper for October?

Surfin’ Time

Have a surfer dude at your house?  We have some great new surf & beach themed fabrics in stock.  These would be great for shirts, pajama pants, quilts, pillows…

I could totally see any of these being used in a surf themed teen bedroom!

Triangles and More Triangles

If you’ve been in the shop in the past couple of weeks you have probably noticed one of our newest and most stunning display quilts:

Ashbury Heights quilt

Heather made this delightful quilt using fabrics from the Ashbury Heights line from Riley Blake.  To see more of the fabrics click here.

The rich colors are just so lovely. 
The quilt pattern Heather used is this one from Moda and we have them for sale in the shop.  It’s a great pattern and there’s no reason to be intimidated by the triangles. 

Bungle Jungle quilt pattern

For the quilt back Heather chose a soft and cuddly purple minky for the backing – a popular choice for quilt backs this time of year.  Have you ever tried using minky on a quilt back?  I’ve done several now and they’ve quilted up beautifully with no puckers or other problems.  And my kids love them!  Try a minky backing for your next quilt!
