I'm a nut....

go on and just say it.....

I purchased fabric yesterday of a new Halloween line.  I used the pattern from Clothworks (who makes the line, Midnight Mischief) and got enough fabric to "whip" up a top.

Got home yesterday from work and errands around 6:15, made dinner, ate, played on the computer then proceeded to cut out fabric....by 9:15 I have 50% of the top done.  Started sewing again at 7:00 am and just finished it:

Needless to say, I'm tickled!!  I'm going to bring it to work for a shop sample and quilt it later, but it's done and too cute.  It's about 48" x 50".  Here's a close up:

I guess I can shower now and get ready for work, huh??

I also hung up my Verry Purple Little Quilt (it's new name) on my wire of quilts (please ignore the cobwebs--I'm short and they don't get cleared out but once a year):

Have a good day!


  1. I love that halloween quilt. It is my daughters favorite holiday and I really need to make time to make her some.
    I also like the line you hang your quilts on. You are so creative.

    Halloween is my favorite as well and I actually got to pick out this fabric for the shop, so I needed to use it! :)

    I need to make another "wire" to hang my quiltlets, my current one is full now :) Thanks Betsy!

  2. It's very cute!!!

    Thank you!

  3. Love the new quilt, it is so cute!!! I really like how you have all of those hanging up!

    Thank you and Thank you Kristie! I really should start quilting some of my tops :)

  4. Your new little quilt looks quite at home with the rest of the little ones. The halloween quilt is adorable, I am almost tempted to get that panel. See ya, Cheryl

    I have it hanging at work right now, so if you want to see it in person look for it there. Thanks!

  5. This is so cute! I love the border!

  6. I'm like that sometimes....when I buy a fabric that I absolutely love and want to just cut into it and start something.....I might stay up all night...heheheheheheh.....so...if you're nuts....then I'm in that count!

    I'm soo glad to see I'm not the only one who is nuts :) I can't stay up and sew all night anymore because I make more errors that way :)

    Thanks for commenting!
