The pattern was from Quilter’s World Magazine (Oct 2003, Vol 25) and is by Amy Bradley Designs titled ‘Halloween Treats’.
This is one of my favorite appliqué quilts of our dog, Ranger.
I loved making it and it always makes me smile when we hang it up. Since it is Halloween, I thought it was worth another posting.
Original design – October Calendar Block
This is the October calendar block that I designed and made of him. Every month I designed and made a different block with a scottie on it.
I hope you have a yummy, full of chocolate, day.
I have completed 5 calendar wall quilts from Kim Schaefer’s Calendar Quilts (12 months of Fun, Fusible Projects). I do not plan to complete the fall or winter wall quilts because I have lots of fall and Christmas wall quilts. I made a few changes to the March quilt. I used one piece of fabric for the light blue background instead of a pieced background of 5″ squares. I did not add the beige appliqué squares to the border of the quilt. I free motion quilted the background with a leaf design before adding the appliqué pieces. I used a combination of free motion quilting and the blanket stitch to attach the appliqué pieces. Can’t wait to hang up my new wall hanging. Guess I will have to wait a couple of months. Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
Happy New Year. Hope your new year will be filled with fun sewing and quilting projects. I plan to work through my UFOs again this year. I did finish about half of the projects from my list from last January. Of course I have lots of new project ideas that I hope to complete also. I am posting this picture of my snowman wall hanging and hoping that we don’t get winter weather (snow or ice) this weekend. Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
Happy Thanksgiving to all my family, friends, and quilting buddies. Hope you enjoy your time today with family and friends. Enjoy pie and have fun. Donna
