I love blog hops! Thanks to Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks for Hosting this hop! I decided to create a pumpkin house for my pumpkin quilt. I love how it turned out. When I showed the design to my son he said it needed a black cat and thus it was added.
I had fun quilting swirls in the orange and making the window panes.
I love the shape of these leaves.
Who wouldn't want a lime green door?
And don't forget the cat!
I've been doing little house quilts in a series for all the recent blog hops I've been in. Here are the other two. The mushroom house:
And the witch's hat house:

I was on Facebook or someone's blog the other day....I really wish I could remember where I read it! Anyways, they were talking about Fabscrap. It's a recycling firm in New York dedicated to recycling fabric from the fashion industry. So what did I do? I went to the website to check it out! You can find it here. I've been into leather for a while thanks to the wonderful Cathy Wiggins. I love using it for applique details as it doesn't shred! And I love all the textures you can get. So...leather scrap bags for $4? Yes, you have to pay shipping. I ordered five. Couldn't help myself once I had to pay the shipping anyways. Here's what I got. Some fun textured leather.
This amazing metallic leather.
All these fun things!
And a whole box more of mostly gray, brown, and black scraps and samples and swatches. It's a treasure and it was for a good cause too! Countdown to Houston....7 days! I hope you get to quilt today! Suzy
