After scouring the racks for what seemed like hours he decided on this hat. I told him it looked perfect on him. Fits his personality and everything. Lets just say he wasn't amused by my comment. He wore the hat all the way home and hasn't taken it off yet.
I shuffled off to my quilt studio as soon as we got home to give Mr. Owl some quality time with his new headgear. Our little trip got me in the Halloween spirit. The end of September is upon us and Halloween will be here before we know it. To try and break the habit of always being last minute I decided to whip up some place mats to Octoberfy the table.
I broke out the trusty AccuQuilt GO!, reached for my nearest Halloween fat quarter bundle and went to cutting strips with my 2 1/2" strip cutting die lickety split. I assembled the strips in rows of ten, sandwiched the batting and backing and zig zag stitched down the seams where the strips come together. Five fat quarters gave me enough strips to make four mats. I selected four more fat quarters from my stash for the backing and bound them with black polka dot. I was finished by dinner time. What do you think?
