Hello everyone!

Zombie Love Mini Quilt

Today is my first tutorial for Sew Mama Sew and just in time for Halloween. The tutorial is for the Zombie Love Mini Quilt. I do hope you get a chance to head over there and take a peek. To celebrate, I’m having a giveaway on my Instagram page. Head over there to find all the details so you can win this Zombie Love Quilt!

If you don’t have an Instagram account, download the app to your phone or iPad. Instagram is a virtual show and tell. It’s so fun to see all of the fabulous work everyone does to keep you inspired and creative. And who doesn’t like to show off their quilts & sewing projects?!

You can find me @smorielorrie ….Come check me out!

Our June guild swap was ‘fabric baskets’. I used that super cute Paris Bonjour fabric that arrived from Timeless Treasures and a tutorial found at St. Louis Folk Victorian. The instructions were easy and clear, which made this basket a breeze but made it difficult for me to bid it adieu because it turned out so darned cute! Not to fret. It went to a good home:)

What I received in return was one of these fab one hour baskets made by Shelley over at Elsie’s Girl. Don’t you just love that stripe & polka dot!

I also managed to finish up yet another MineCraft quilt. But I’ll spare you yet another pic of that. But expect a new MineCraft character to be gracing a quilt top soon, with a tutorial…psst..it’s the bad guy in MineCraft, if your wondering. BOOM!

I partially watched The Sound Of Music while cutting 27 new kits.

This was just made using my leftover squares from the Spinning Star demo I did here. And ‘Oh Boy’, did it turn out cute or what?!

This is bound and you can find this SewMod cutie for sale in the SewModMakes Etsy shop.

And lastly, I spent some time making a block for our next guild lottery entry. We’re doing a Halloween theme with a specific color palette this time using paint chips that Shelley picked…A Modern Halloween.

It will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with. I think I’ll make two more to increase my chances of winning!

But for now, I’ll say…

🎶🎶So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you🎶🎶

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.
