Happy Halloween!

Here's this year's Halloween shirts for my grands.

Up first Ellie's and Theo's. (Both turtlenecks are the same shirt...don't know what happened to the color.) 

And Sophie's and Natalie's. 
All designs are from Designs by JuJu.  I had to go to my photos and look up all of the previous Halloween shirts to make sure I didn't repeat any designs. Hopefully the kids will enjoy wearing them. On to Christmas shirts -- or maybe I'll do winter shirts.  

Monday I showed some blocks I got from my FCQ Equilter group. You can see the churn dashes on the design wall here. Starting Friday, 11/1 it's my turn to request blocks.  I thought I had a block I wanted to ask for but when I really looked at it I decided it was more work than I wanted to do myself. I decided to go to one of my "old faithful" blocks. And, it's really easy.  This is from You can check out her instructions for Happy Blocks from Charms. Part of the reason I like this block is it is so FAST!  4 seams.  It usually takes me longer to actually pick the fabrics then it does to sew the block.  One of the cool things about the block is you can rotate the block so none of the seams overlap.  With fun center fabric these make great quilts for babies or kids.  

I'm linking up with Midweek Makers, To-Do Tuesday, and Needle and Thread Thursday.  It's been a long time since I've done a midweek post but I'm looking forward to seeing what folks are working on.  Hope you get a chance to check out some blogs. 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. cute shirts! I think most places the kids will need to dress warmly - cold all over the place!

  2. I love your choice of a super simple charm square block!

  3. I like your block choice. It will certainly be easier to make than the Antique Lace!

  4. We have a Theo too. Shirts are so cute. Like your block choice.

  5. You always have the cutest holiday shirts for the grands. It's nice to have a some simple sewing to do, with the holidays coming simple and stress reducing are definitely the ticket for sewing room time.

  6. You can never go wrong with Happy Blocks. I have a big back of them that need to be made up into quilts just as soon as I finish off some UFO's that are in the finishing off quilting and binding stages.

  7. It will be fun to see the different novelty fabrics you get in these!

  8. Oh, forgive my last post. You chose Happy Blocks! The embroidered shirts are very cute.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
