October Blogger Bundle for Needle & Foot

Needle and Foot Fabrics was a fantastic sponsor of Project QUILTING last season.  When I was contacted by Bernie from Needle and Foot to see if I wanted to create a fabric bundle from her etsy shop I immediately said yes!  OCT BLOGGER BUNDLEIt being an October fabric bundle … my choices are very autumnal with a bit of fun of course!

Starting from feather print and moving clockwise …

There are some really great fabrics in here and I love a good fussy cut fabric like Afternoon With Deer & Fox, Lewis & Irene Fabric.  I decided to create a fun little block tutorial for you that features each of the fabrics from my special bundle! I couldn’t resist the fun prints in the feathers, the faux sashiko stitches and the dots!  It’s always good to have a few fabrics that read “Solid” to help calm things down a bit … or at least that’s what I’ve learned!

  26. I love learning about new bloggers from ones I follow already, like Bernie! Hi, Kim!
    Autumn has always been my favorite time of year - the temperatures are perfect for my physiology, the colors of the leaves as they turn delight me, and the shorter days ease my soul. I can't choose my favorite thing, tho crunching fallen leaves is right up there near the top!
    Thanks for the chance to win a bundle!!

  27. My favorite fall activity is Thanksgiving. Not only do we have family with us, but we also invite International university students. Last year we had students from India, Germany, Taiwan, China, and Nigeria. Often the students will bring a dish of their food to add to the traditional American Thanksgiving food. And we often invite Americans who are also going to be alone over the holiday. Our lives have been made so much richer because of all the friends who have come from near and far.

I love everything about fall ... the colors, the changing leaves, the apple picking, the pumpkin patches, the bountiful harvest, a fire in the fireplace to warm the hearth. ... and, of course, the fabrics and quilts!
