Random: Goodbye October!

It is hard to believe today is last day of October! It is my favorite month of the year. The fall colors are so pretty with mixed of greens, yellows, oranges, and reds! No maple leaves in N.D., but when we lived in Iowa there were many maple trees. We always take them home when we were on the walk!   November will arrive in a few hour, school will go faster and the holidays will approach us very soon! Possible winter wonderland...

This afternoon I had chance to revisited my {Farmer's wife quilt along}. It has been awhile since last visit and it was fun to pull out all the fat quarters and play with colors and prints. I mark 18 blocks that are not so complicated for piecing. It will allow me to added few more blocks to the block stash {46}. I am anxious to have this quilt assemble together!

It is fun to make a mess..... then worry about everything later... I have once considered cut all my prints into fat quarters, but I hesitated!

This is how I stash fabric for each block then work individual block later on. Normally I cut all the piecing pieces at once before assembling. Do you like quilt along?  It is fun to see one pattern,but transfer into different looks.

Did you see S? She is in the Dalmatian costume... She has been called a cow all night, but she didn't minded anymore. It was the first costume I made for her 4 years ago, back then she was a little one. She insisted to wear it this year again. It is a bit smaller, but she had a great time with her new buddy.

Happy Halloween, friends~
