The October Project

Happy October everyone!! Can you believe it is October already? To me, October is the start of the holiday season. I love pulling out all of my Autumn/Halloween decorations and getting the house ready for the trick or treaters. But there is one thing missing. A quilt. So I am making one.

Here are the fabrics waiting to be cut into squares. I am still deciding what kind of quilt I want to make, and am really leaning towards a "plus" quilt. It satisfies my love of patchwork squares, and adds an extra design element into the mix. But my challenge is getting this quilt made within the next few weeks so we can use it during the month of October, so I definitely will be making a smaller version. Wish me luck :)


  1. Hi Debbie,
    Sounds like a lovely idea. Oh to have a speciality quilt how nice!!! You are become the Queen of Quilts!! Have fun making it, can't way to see your progress! Have a great weekend. Mine is rainy, so nice to do things inside.

  2. I just can't move that fast, still working on quilts I began this spring! I do love that candy corn fabric, adorable:>) Watching other people actually finish quilts inspires me to work on mine....sometimes. Lol

  3. I can't wait to see the finished product!

  4. I think you are right in that October is the beginning of the holiday season! I just love this time of year!!

    Looks like you will be whipping up something fun with those fabrics! Can't wait!!

  5. Happy October to you too Debbie! :o)
    Your quilt will be just precious!
    I too love this time of the year.
    I hope you are having a nice weekend.
    hugs. Trish :o)
