More orange and black…

Made from my Halloween quilt scraps.  I cut squares 2.5", and the whole thing measures about 17"x 21".    It’ll be cute on a wall.

  Did I mention I’m really sick of orange and black?  Yes…I am.  Luckily I’m out of orange and black scraps so I don’t feel guilty throwing them away.  Now I’m off to finish picking the airheads out of our candy and hoard them.  :)

Pin It!

Amy said...

I don't know how Halloween snuck up so fast -- I don't even have ANY decorations out yet, let alone finishing (or to be honest STARTING) my cute, cute Halloween wallhanging. *sigh* I tend to run a few months behind at all times....

Cute, cute quilts, both large and small!

There isn't enough orange fabric in the world for me! I used the Erin Mcmorris leaf dot to back my first ever quilt - I love that fabric!

beccy said...

... And I love both your orange and black quilts!

Ariane said...

I love it. A great way to use up those scraps. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Amy Sp said...

I still absolutely love this color scheme!

Heather said...

Please do tell how you hang your quilts. Big or small, I'd love to know.

I just had to tell you that I made a treat tote bag for my son the other day - - your instructions were great! Sewing, for me, is the easy part...it's following directions that I have a hard time with and your directions and pictures were great. (I posted a picture of it, though don't look too close - I'm calling it my practice bag and will soon make another for my new little baby boy and will probably make a better one for my son. I don't like how my candy corn turned out).

Thanks again for the tutorial - I love that these will store so efficiently over the years and are so, so cute. NOW...I want to make some aprons for my nieces and a hooded bath towel for my new nephew...so if you could kindly figure out an easy way to do it...then post the instructions...(just kidding-your busy chasing a baby and growing a baby. That was me last Halloween too!)

2 1/2" squares are adorable regardless of what colour they are!

Super cute! Is that a Longaberger basket on the shelf under the table? Love those things too!
