Orange you glad it's October? That's the color I immediately think about when this month is mentioned. We've beautiful orange leaves on the trees, and let's not forget the orange pumpkins! I LOVE PUMPKINS! My heart jumps with joy when they magically start appearing at the stores or at the different "Pumpkin Patches" around the area. My kitty, Gibbs, even has a toy cloth pumpkin and it's her favorite. Pumpkins come is so many different shapes and sizes, it's hard to choose a favorite one, and it takes me forever to decide. So guess what? I buy quite a few. Doesn't that sound like what we do with fabric?

Speaking of fabric, you need to go through your stash or run to the store since shops offer so many wonderful options for quilt projects this month. There are big projects, little projects, machine stitching projects, and hand stitching projects. We start a new mystery this month and two BOMs. Several quilts are quick and simple, and you may find yourself making more than one. We have pieced quilts, applique quilts, and English Paper Piecing quilts. Do I need to go on? And of course I have to remind you that Kennel Quilts is also a good way to use up your fabrics and help shelter pets at the same time. (We have to use fabric up so we can buy more – right?)

When the nights get cooler with the harvest moon and frost on the pumpkins, you'll find a "purrfect" time to start on some projects for the winter and the upcoming holiday season. Grab a Pumpkin Spice latte, curl up on the couch, and start one of these wonderful projects. Please share when you finish since we love to see what our readers make.

So now, orange you glad it's October! (Don't forget the pumpkin bread!)

PatternRemember looking through the toy kaleidoscope tube? Barbara Harnett's quilt freezes the frame at just the right position.

In Kaleidoscope three simple units are twisted and turned like the objects within a kaleidoscope to make this interesting design. The three units are the King's Cross Corner, four-patch, and rail. These units are surrounded by multiple borders to finish things off.

In her quilt Barbara uses a small print as her background and solids for the other two fabrics. Any small prints, tonals, or solids will work. Pick your fabrics and get started making your own Kaleidoscope.

PatternIn this beautiful appliqué quilt, Nan Baker has given us a simple and classic design. Using fusible web, Tile Play will be completed quickly. This design shines with batiks, tonals, or small to medium prints. Just make sure you select fabrics for the paisleys with good contrast to your background fabric and you'll be set to see Tile Play.
