I am excited to share this tutorial because it is so damn easy.
First of all, it is simply a large quilt block which makes a pretty centerpiece for your table.
Second of all, there a few tricks to making it so quickly that avoid sewing a bunch of little triangles.
Third, it is reversible!
This center piece has Thanksgiving and general autumn fabric on one side and all Halloween fabric on the other.
Halloween is one of those holidays that I typically do not decorate for because It seems to come and go so quickly. By making this reversible, you can participate in Halloween decorations and easily flip to general fall fabrics on the other side, with no need for storing a Halloween table runner by itself.
Pumpkin, maple AND coffee cake? You probably all think I'm pushing it. Well, maybe I am.
I'm sure by now we are all sick of pumpkin recipes floating around on pinterest and blog land. Maybe you don't even like pumpkin to begin with. Maybe pumpkin is your favorite and you'll eat it any chance you get through the fall season. Who knows.
I've been doing a lot of sewing this month. I know it doesn't seem like it because almost all of my posts are recipe based, but I have been sewing my tush off.
This is the first month I've been able to create the block of the month for my quilt guild. Each month we are given a BOTM and everyone who wants to participate goes home and makes two before the next meeting.
Half of the blocks are made into a quilt by a volunteer to donate. The other half are raffled off to one of the members who participated.
I thought this little guy was too cute to pass up.
This would make such a great October wall hanging or even a set of pot holders to use for the Halloween season.
I know, I know, Halloween was so last month. Unfortunately, October was the busiest month of school I've had yet and I was working on more than one project. Anyway, this block is great for Halloween so go ahead and pin it so you can make some pot holders next Fall.
I am excited to introduce my new website to everyone. I am moving forward with my blog and online business so an official website seemed like a great start. During this process I have also switched my blog name from "Sew Much to Say" to "Sew Much 2 Say." This new name appears on my new blog header and all of my social media networks.
The first new segment of this blog is going to be a monthly recipe writers link up. Recipe Writers was inspired by Martha and I sending recipes to each other through the mail. It was so exciting to check my mail and have a new recipe to try. I wanted to expand this by creating a place for all of us to share our recipes and possibly find new favorites.
On the first of every month we will introduce a new theme depending on the month and all share our recipes here. The link party will open on the first of every month and close on the last day. This way you will have time to share a recipe before the holiday (if there is one) so others can try it, check out other recipes to try yourself or even have time to post one after the actual holiday. For example, This month we are having Thanksgiving favorites and next month will be Christmas related.
I'm excited to get started and try out everyone else's recipes!
I have a project that I've been working on all month (yes, all month long) that I am excited to share with you. It is a sewing project...because this is Sew Much To Say (despite my frequent focus on recipes)!
Until I finish said project, I will continue to post what yummy things I've been cooking up in my kitchen as of late.
Pot roast is ..well, post roast is everything.
When you smell post roast simmering all day long your mouth is watering for hours before dinner. When you lift up the lid off of your crock pot the smell of tender vegetables and beef just comforts your entire being. When you finally get to eat this delicious meal you will feel so fulfilled and be thankful that this crisp season is upon us..so we may eat as many hearty, warm meals as our little hearts (and bellies) desire.
