I bought a Trick or Treat layer Cake by Deb Strain from her, but I need ideas on how to use this for Halloween...will you please let me know your suggestions?  Thanks!!

Sorry about the linky party for Toot-torial Tuesday - the Linky Tools link isn't working this week ?!?

Toot-torial Tuesday # 14; I was featured on Lily's Quilts: Quilt As You Go

If you are new to quilting, you may want to try the Quilt As You Go Method, which is detailed here:

A post from SewWeQuilt @ Stash Manicure is also featured:

Quilt As You Go is helpful if you are new to quilting, have a small sewing machine, want to quilt your own quilt without sending your tops out to a longarmer, or if you have hand injuries or arthritis.

Here is the direct link to the super-fast, no hand sewing required,  iron-on batting tape method I featured:

I hope you will find the information helpful.  Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!

The Want-to-be A Quilter give-away today at SewWeQuilt @ Stash Manicure features 9.5 yards of Ty Pennington's "Water flower" fabric, sew be sure to stop on by to register!

Toot-torial Tuesday #13 9/6-9-8, 2011 Inspirational Quilt Shop Tour

Labor Day Weekend = Travel

I couldn't resist stopping by this little roadside quilt shop/antiques store.
These pics show how adorable it all was...

Top right:  just like my great-grandmother's bread bowl!

Quilts and antiques sure go together nicely!

This looks familiar!  An AccuQuilt rag die quilt - I love the colorway they chose.  It's beautiful for fall!

This demi-tasse set was featured at $8.00 - what a deal!

Antique children's toys were on display.

What a fun stop on our way to the Lake!
Hope you also had a wonderful holiday weekend.

Have you stopped by to see who won the Bernina sewing machine from Madame Samm at Stash Manicure?  Tuesdays and Thursdays are for current quilters - be sure to sign up to win!
