Marti Michell Mini Quiltmania

Marti Michell very generously sent all the Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Sew-along Bloggers all the sets we would need to make the quilt and so I started using them. I love that you can use the sets separately or combine them to create all kinds of beautiful patterns. It was a so generous of Marti and her company and I am very grateful. Marti Michell Mini Quilt Blog Hop - GnomeAngel The idea for the mini quiltmania was dreamed up by Angie of Gnome Angel to help the people in the Facebook group (26) Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Sew-along learn new ways to use the templates. I am excited and honored to be included as one of the bloggers! Next Friday, 11/4/2016, Marti Michell will be posting an amazing mini!   Fall Pumpkin Mini Quilt 18" high x 18.5" wide Fabrics - FQ - Magic Meows, Alexander Henry; FQ - Orange black dot, Robert Kaufman; FQ - Orange Camo, Nomad, Urbin Chiks, Moda; FQ - Orange Circles, S'more Love, Cosmo Crick


  Welcome everyone to my day of the EERIE NIGHTS Blog Hop! I want to thank the ladies who made this possible Marian , of Seams To Be Sew, It’s Creepy and It’s Crawly, It’s Eerie and It’s Spooky… | and Amy, of Sew Incredibly Crazy . Both ladies put in a lot of work to bring this hop to you! I am grateful that they included me and In The Boon Docks because I love Halloween! I like to do things a little different around here in the boon docks of West Virginia. I have gotten into to "made by me" or "handmade clothing"! So for this blog hop I found this awesome Timeless Treasures Fabric, Fun-CG3540 that glows in the dark and the Grainline Studios "Scout Tee"! Well I may not glow as well as I would have liked but it does make others stop and look! I of course used my favorite Aurifil thread #5007 and it works great! The lovely gray sheen looks wonderful for the topstitching!     EERIE is me out in the cemetery to take these pictures for you! I went to
