Great New Pattern

Isn't this an awesome pattern for an art quilt? It is by Nina Stevens and is available from Hancock's of Paducah. I have ordered it. I e-mailed the designer and found out she uses templates for the top, and weaves the trunk fabrics together. My first instinct was to use this pattern for Roman shades for my renovated bedroom. Not sure if that is what I will do or not, since the three windows in there are extremely tall and skinny. Anyway, I look forward to trying this beauty.
I hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween if you celebrate that holiday where you live. I have my front porch all decorated with lights and flashing pumpkins- and only got one set of trick-or-treaters. We have a long driveway, and the houses are quite far apart in our neighborhood. Most of the children seem to spend their Halloween at church activities, malls, or in nearby neighborhoods with much denser housing.

But here are pics of my two favorite trick-or-treaters: grandson Avery the spider, and lovely Lily the Ladybug.

The spider is really scary, and the ladybug is so cute.

That is a great pattern. If you use it for Roman Shades, will you please share a picture? That would be gorgeous!

Hi Judy,

I think the trees would be awesome on the windows. I am thinking of putting one tree in each window, leaning toward each other on the wall with two windows. I would have to adjust the size to make it fit. I will surely post pics! Thank you for visiting my blog.
