by Cathy Ellsaesser, posted on

Whew! We just are getting done with the Anita’s University event and it’s time to host October Sew Fun! Rob sure does keep us hopping!

As usual, our Sew Fun presenter is ready with a variety of interesting projects this month. I’ve included descriptions of a couple of the projects on tap, but, as always, our presenter has several more projects to share with you at the store.

Festive Fall Quilts

Plus, celebrate Halloween with spooky spiders, friendly bats, expressive jack-o-lanterns, and much more! Make projects in a variety of sizes, from tea towels and place mats to lap quilts and table runners. These quick and easy projects will brighten up your home for fall!

Whether you are a “first timer” or an experienced quilter, there are projects in this book that are appropriate for your skill level.  The designs use machine applique’ and simple piecing techniques.

Look at some of the “bootiful” and beautiful quilts you can make.


You’ll have to come to Sew Fun to see what our presenter stitched up from this book.
