A FREE QUILT for the Auction

Click on this link to a fun GIVE-AWAY here at Jaybird Quilts!!!

These little kiddos are trying out the "FREE QUILT" I recently made!

My "Guitar Boy's" Charter School was having a fund raiser so I dug in to my stash to make a quilt for the silent auction. I needed to make it quick so I cut browns and blues into large blocks. I let my hubby set them into a pleasing design of his choice and I think he did a great job!!!

The backing was from my stash. Then I pieced together batting scraps then quilted it with a design, that could please both male and female, of leaves, cattails and swirls. Bound it with leftover scraps from the blocks......So.......It's a FREE QUILT!

I love FREE QUILTS.....don't you??

Our small HARVEST of PUMPKINS were just picked when I snapped this photo.

Before we get too far away from Halloween I wanted to show what my "guitar boy" was for Halloween. I really don't know WHAT HE WAS......but this is what he looked like. He received quite a bit of attention from the other party goers at our YM/YW Halloween Party. I actually painted his face for him and I got the idea from our grandson that lives in Colorado when he went to a theme park and had HIS face painted for FUN! I just copied and it turned out pretty freaky lookin!!

And this was a fun Halloween Wall Hanging that I quilted. The candy corn border was so perfect for this fun quilt!
