E-Chatter - August 2012 (Halloween Spooktacular)

Thank you to everyone that came out for our "Park Your Brooms at the Door" event!  We had a blast dressing up as witches and sharing our tricks and treats.

We had some ladies come to do a little shopping, they heard about our spooktacular and couldn't resist dressing up!

As you can see, you really missed out if you didn't stop by this weekend.  Here are all the new things we showed at What's New.

We LOVE pillowcases around here...they are great as gifts and these Halloween ones are awesome as trick-or-treat bags for the little ones.  (The top one with the white ghosts has a glow-in-the-dark spider web cuff.)

Blooming Boots uses a layer cake to create this super cute table runner.  You will have left over pieces to make a small matching wall hanging.  (Please don't judge us, we didn't have time to quilt and bind this one.)

Happy Jacks looks like it is appliqued, but these little smiling pumpkins are just fussy cut out of fabric.  Framed by coordinating fabrics, this quilt makes a great Fall time throw.

We have some great new fabrics including the ones we used for pillowcases and Happy Jacks.  Like I mentioned earlier, the spider webs are glow-in-the dark.

The Ghastlies were so popular last year that they came out with a second version called Family Reunion.  We used it to make a pillowcase and a 10-minute table topper, featured on our Halloween table.


We also have an entire line called Nightmare Manor that includes a cute panel.  We love the use of colors other than just orange and black in this line.  A free pattern is included for a wall hanging and table cloth.

Not only did we have our big spooktacular this weekend, we also participated in the Garfield Days parade.  We covered Julie's little red Cabrio in quilts and threw fat quarters and candy.
