Let's Book It October 2015

Happy Halloween!
 That's Maya on her first Halloween, you can tell by the look on her face that she just loves this holiday and dressing up. 

The last day of October means it's time for Let's Book It at Vrooman's Quilts. No rules, nothing to buy, just make something that you already have the pattern for that you planned on making anyway. I've cleaned out so many old magazines. 

I picked this magazine:
McCall's Quilting May/June 2012

and this pattern:

Here's mine:
Bright, happy with lots of movement, it's wonderful as a baby quilt. I'm crediting this one with bringing back my Mojo which had gone missing. Playing with all of those bright fabrics was just what I needed. I made the triangles a little smaller than the original so I could make it more baby quilt size. A touch of free motion in each block and it was done, super soft and so cute.  

It passed the quilt inspection and was well guarded when I had it outside, I wasn't sure he was going to let me get pictures of it.  

I'm sad to say this fun party is coming to an end, next month will be the last linky party so if you've been thinking about it now's the time. It would be nice to see everyone come back for the last one too. 

Later Gators,


  1. Great baby quilt, so fun and colorful and a super quilt to make up ahead of time since it works for either boy or girl, and pretty much any nursery color scheme. Win-Win in my book!

  2. I love how you have really pulled your resources each month and created such lovely quilts. You make me think that I need to do something with the pile of solids (scraps) at some point.

  3. This makes me is so you. I love the toss up. You could even make this one wonky with lots of tilted triangles. A perfect fun quilt. Are you going to share the costume photos of the terrible twins for this year......or are they too old to beg for treats?

  4. Oh my gosh...I love that quilt! You always do so much with color. And stop abusing that poor dog.

  5. That turned out great - so bright and happy looking!

  6. Hey! Very fun quilt. Like happy confetti. :D

  7. What a happy, energetic and cheering quilt Dana! I love it! It's easy to see how sewing it would be so much fun that it helps you get your mojo back. You always found the neatest things for Let's Book It!
