There’s a new chill in the air and as I was walking daisy this morning, I realized how much I love fall in Chicago. The leaves change beautiful colors, the air is crisp, its apple pickin’ time and lets not forget my favorite drink at Starbucks is out..Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

And you know another great thing about fall? It’s time to start decorating for the holidays! We had two big hits in Madison this year that will surely inspire you & light a fire under your britches to start working on those holiday projects.

Blend fabrics has a new line out called Spooktacular. It was so popular that we’ve ordered a second round of bolts. We made this quilt with our Summer Tweets pattern. So simple that the top can be assembled from start to finish in a day! Summer Tweets was perfect for showing off the large scale prints. I just love that apothecary jar fabric.

This kit can be found in the Etsy shop for $45.00 including the pattern for free! No time left this year for Halloween, but we all know you can get it finished by next fall!..maybe;)

We can’t forget Christmas! We have another fun line from Blend fabrics called Hip Holiday.

It reminds me of Christmas Vacation when Clark puts that big tree on top of car! I couldn’t resist making this from our pattern called Fruitcakes. I spiced it up a bit though by adding a car & tree appliqué template.
