long time no see

Hello all, Mary Ellen here,

I have no good excuse for my long absence from blogging. I’m going to make an effort to get back to posting more often.

I recently made a fall quilt for a demo that left me with lots of orange and black scraps. This morning I spent some time looking for a quick and easy small project to put those scraps to good use. I found one that I think will work well, and even better I can easily adapt it to use the size of small square scraps that I have. If you like to decorate for fall, and not so much for Halloween you could certainly change the colors of the squares to make yours more of a gourd quilt, rather than a pumpkin quilt. If you don’t have many autumn scraps, the designer starts off with a pillow pattern-one block only to make. If you have throw pillows on your couches interchangeable pillow covers make decorating for the season so easy. Here’s a link to the  scrappy pumpkin patterns.

You know what would encourage me to get back to more regular posting here? Leaving me a comment now and then so I know some one reads what I write. How about it?
