Sew Thankful Sunday: October, 2014, Part 1

Hello friends!  I am going to split this month’s edition of Sew Thankful Sunday into two parts.  Mainly because I’m short on time this weekend to give you a full report.  So here’s part 1:

{I am frequently visiting other blogs and I’m always amazed at the talent and passion that I see along the way.  Since I love sharing these new “finds” with you, I created Sew Thankful Sunday.  My way of giving back to the quilting community and sharing great content with you at the same time!}

I LOVE this time of year, and I’m so inspired by all of the fall colors that I’m seeing outside and on my computer screen!  There are lots of bloggers out there sharing their own fall inspiration that I am sew thankful for.

(Remember, you can click on any of the images in this post and it will open up a new tab to the associated link).

1 .I love this Patchwork Pumpkin Pillow tutorial by Lani @ Simply Fresh Vintage.  This is a clever way to use an old sweater and add some fall decor, too.

2.  The Riley Blake Design Team has been up to some tricks or treats with their Halloween Trick or Treat Bags.  Your little goblins will love them!



3.  It’s the perfect time to whip up a Patchwork Pumpkin Pillow courtesy of Amy at Diary of a Quilter.  This is a great project to use up some of those orange and black scraps!

4.  Quilters can be clever and it shows with this Halloween Cat Star block at Schnitzel & Boo.  Kristi made up the tutorial based on a block she received from Janda in a swap and they were both kind enough to share it with us.

5.  Let’s not forget the edible pumpkin this month!  Check out these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars from Chocolate Covered Katie.  Katie always has a healthy spin on the most delicious desserts!


6.  The Benartex Blog, Sew in Love with Fabric, is having a Feels Like Fall Blog Hop.  I love this Halloween Medallion Quilt using a kaleidoscope ruler that was shared by Christina of Sometimes Crafter.

7.  Bias applique is a technique that I have wanted to try, and this Lotus Blossom Bias Applique tutorial may be just what I need to get started.  Alyssa from Pile ‘O Fabric does a great job of showing you how.


8.  A girl can never have enough tote bags, and this Malibu Satchel by Heidi of Fabric Mutt has everything I like in a bag – versatility and style!

That’s all for Part 1 of Sew Thankful Sunday, October.  I’ll be back in a day or two with more goodness.  Thank you to all of the blogs featured today!
