First I big stitched the table runner. I had the binding mostly done and I realized that I had not put on a hanging sleeve and the quilt was not lying as flat as I would like, I took off the binding and removed the quilting. I had been cleaning up my quilt bookcase when I found this candy corn free motion design that I had used on another Halloween quilt. I switched up my quilting plan and fired up my Tiara. I tried my new glide foot for the free motion.
I am so enjoying learning the joys of the quilting part of the process. The pattern called for using velvet on the hat. I ordered a pieced of black hand dyed cotton velvet but the color did not work well with the black wool so I used a piece of minky-like fabric instead.

This month I start my adventures in wool applique. My sister has encouraged me to branch out and try it with a gift from Buttermilk Basin. This will be my October OMG. I also have basket patterns from Red Linen Quilts and the Round the Garden from Quiltmania in the queue.
