Easy Fabric Pumpkins

I love pumpkins 🎃 If I could afford it, I’d have a wagon full to decorate with. For some reason, I can’t seem to grow them in my garden. Soooo- I’m making my own.

I used balls of thread but you can also use toilet paper. You can use squash stems or branches for the stem. I love these fun and easy colorful pumpkins!

Quilt Market 2016

I did it again! Packed up my gear and headed for Houston. What a trip.


You know, I love a good theme and my Quilt Market booth was no different. I did a THRIVE theme with cacti and succulents. I had fabric printed for stitching up my samples. It all came together!


I built my booth walls from pegboard. The original plan was to stitch through the holes with yarn, but after everything was up it seemed like overkill. I kept it simple. This was the half booth space and was perfect for little ol’ me. Actually, it was pretty much all I could handle. It was just me and assembling it all was such a bear! I unloaded it all myself. 


One of the fun things about market is all of the eye candy everywhere. So inspiring!

Another Quilt Market is in the books!
