Are you ready?
Finally the summer is coming to an end and the best time of the year came begin.
I love fall, especially Halloween - such a fun little celebration (especially when the little ones are still little).
I saw this adorable fabric at my fabric store's big sale a couple of weeks ago.
They had 4 of the fabrics in this collection (fat quarters) bundled for something like $4.25 (on sale for 1/2 off)- so I bought 2.
It's called Boo to You by Riley Blake - LOVE the name!

I finished this cozy little quilt last night, it's for my boys for Halloween.
It measures 41 x 41 - perfect for 2 snuggly little boys.
Instead of using white for the border and some of the smaller squares, I used Kona Cotton in the color Ash.
The polka dot fabric had gray in it so I thought I would try something other than white or off-white.
Not sure that I love it though - but I definitely don't hate it.
My little model once again, he's shy you know.
Ignore the chocolate on his face, he just ate a cookie.
Each square has a patch sewn on top (some with an additional patch of fabric on top of that) and I left the edges raw for that frayed look.
This is the back, I added a strip with the frayed edged circles.
I added my little label from Sweetwater this morning.
I'm lovin' that label.
I will be putting it away until October actually arrives.
Hope I didn't freak anybody out talking about Halloween so early.
But really it is the best time of the year!
