1.  Amy at Positively Splendid has made the most adorable patchwork pumpkins.  She shares all of the details on her blog, including three size options!  Perfect for using up your scraps, too.

6.  I recently ran across a great post on binding tips at Sew Fresh Quilts.  Lorna has rounded up some great tutorials for different ways to finish binding a quilt by machine, plus she has a few tips of her own.  It’s a must read!

  1. I just love your sew thankful Sunday blogs. They have become part of my Sunday Ritual. Thankyou and I hope you keep sharing ( however I would get more done if I would just do and not read on hear so much.) At any rate I just love that you do this for us. Thank you.

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
