It's not October yet, but here October Holiday House is way ahead of the pack, ready for the new year.
I told you the story of when I bought the kit a couple of weeks ago.
I started making the kit at the end of October 2021. I have been trying to make one small quilt a month. Using the kit which has marinated long enough was a good option.
I put this quilt away to get ready for the October birthday gathering, and kept it away for the week we met with the customers.
I brought it out to work on, but it had to be set aside again for the Portrait Representation Quilt. I did work on it a little bit that week, but this week I was able to give it full time attention to finish it.
I cut out the October from one of them and did not have to make individual letters. I also used that fabric for the label. I really liked using tulle as a design element.
The pumpkins and the spider came from the other fat quarter. The kit came with buttons, but they have shanks on the back and I didn't want to use them that way. That fabric is also used for the backing.
It was a fun mini to make and helped warm up my free motion confidence to work on the Representation Portrait Quilt.
