Barnyard Gate is Clue #16

Barnyard Gate is Clue #16!  This is a really fun block, on the easy side, so many of you will be happy.  We are on the home stretch here, so hang on, this is going to be a beauty.  I had to take this week's photo at the Lake House, so why not take it from the dock.   I'm primarily resting and relaxing this week.  However, those of you that run your own business know, you are rarely truly off.  However, I am sewing, hanging out with some of my best friends, taking a few hikes and best of all... enjoying sunsets on the dock.  We've actually experienced almost all of the seasons here this week.  We arrived to fall weather, experienced a cold front that had it feeling like winter, but then had our feet in the water yesterday as we had summer like temperatures.    The cold snap earlier in the week, has given us the opportunity to see some of the colors start to pop. While I've been busy, mostly with some secret sewing, putting the final touches on my next Mystery, the Best o

Stashbuster #2 Turning Up Pumpkins

It is StashBUSTER Tuesday!   Once again, I've partnered up with some fabulous quilt designers for Quilt Block Mania !   I have a bunch to share today; new pattern that is launching, a new class, and a free Block download! NEW PATTERN RELEASE I adore this month's Stashbuster Quilt, Turning Up Pumpkins .   Turning Up Pumpkins You can make this fabulous quilt with stash, scraps, or new  fabric.   The pumpkins are made with 10-11 Fat Quarters. I selected Moda's Fig Tree's All Hallow Eve and then supplemented with a few older Moda Fat Quarters.  The setting blocks are made with yardage; 1 yards darker gray and 1/2 yard lighter gray.  Add 2 yards Background and a fabulous border and you are all set! This is the perfect Fall pattern design, you can use similar-in- color Fat Quarters to make up your Pumpkins (or even Apples) .  You could even go with Halloween theme fabric and make this more of a Halloween quilt.    You don't have to use gray for your setting, as black f
