ScrapHappy Saturday Shadow Play

Where has the year gone?  It's the last Saturday of October and next Sunday week we'll get to change our clocks back to normal time.  I think my body's clock has already adjusted to that time.

I gathered up a lot of different Halloween fabrics and made this cute Halloween quilt.

Not too many blacks in it but had to add it for the seasonal aspect of it.  It was easy to make.  I might try it in a more planned color theme next time so it looks more like it's woven.

This was the pattern we made for Octobers Project Linus quilt.  I'd been saving up these music theme fabrics and threw in a red solid and a white solid for contrast.   The sashing is a piano key boarder from some Elvis material someone didn't want and gave to PL.  It was a perfect fit for this piece.

Hop on over to Soscrappy to see the other shadowy projects.

ScrapHappy Saturday Shadow Play

Ooooo, it's the month of witches and goblins and scarecrows and black cats.   In the Rainbow Scrap Challenge our color is blacks and greys.  At first you might think that would be a dreary quilt color, but I've made some really cute black and white quilts over the years, as in these two. Both of these quilts are from scraps found in the Project Linus boxes of donated fabrics. 
Dear Hubby acting as holder.

And here is the umbrella in black and grey.  I was surprised at the amount of different blacks and greys I had in my scrap bin because it's not a color I would use naturally.
