Are you itching to get busy on some fall sewing? If my Christmas tree skirt post a few days ago put you over the edge, you may want to start off slowly and tackle your holiday sewing in order. So, next up Thanksgiving (for us Canucks) and for everyone, Hallowe'en.
I've got some amazingly talented blog friends and I want you to know about their work. First up is 'e' of pinksuedeshoe. I know her real name, but you have to crack a few good jokes before she'll tell you. She just posted a fab tutorial for making the cutest pumpkin pillows ever. Head on over there for your FREE (ahem, personal use) pattern. Honestly, I told her to make us pay, but she wouldn't hear of it. I plan to make a set of three for our dining table!
If you'd like to make the funkiest Hallowe'en wall hanging ever (or your kid is so into ghouls that they want a whole Hallowe'en quilt of Awesomeness) then visit Sonja's blog to see samples of her patterns all sewn up. Not only is Sonja a member of the VMQG, she's an incredible photographer and designs fantastic foundation patterns (with some help from her husband!) right here in Vancouver. You've never seen Hallowe'en patterns like these: Mumford Mummy, Chuck the Wolfman, Carl Frankenstein, Larry the Creature from the Black Lagoon or my fav, the Vegan Vampire.

Carl Frankenstein, by Sonjartisania
Hmmm, I think Sonja's quilt needs a Hallowe'en Heroine....but a witch is so last year....maybe Carl needs a Belinda Bride, or maybe Mabel the Mad Scientist? Sonja, are you reading this?
Sonjartisania's block patterns are available for a ridiculous $5 each, but only until the Wolfman howls...so hurry here. While you're there, check out Peeping Horse: A. Door. Able.
