When looking at this year's Halloween collections, one collection stood out from the many others.
I have to know. Have you seen Witch Hazel yet?
This new collection from Riley Blake is a fresh vintage look to Halloween and just about everyone loves that...what I like to call..."potion green."
B.T.W. I seem to have dabbled with that potion once or twice....know what I mean?
The "Mothership" really outdid herself on planning our kits with this collection. The Witch Hazel Quilt (above) is easy to piece and a great pattern to showcase those fabulous focal prints in the collection.
When I was little my brother and I used to watch the ABC Weekend Special. The series always began with a storybook and when I saw the Witch Hazel collection, I was having trouble recalling why these images were seeew vivid in my mind. After some research I'm proud to say my memory hasn't failed...I found "Miss Switch!" If you are a child of the 80's...you just might remember this!
Anyway...back to our story. LOL
As I said above, the "Mothership" has been having a lot of fun with the Witch Hazel collection and Halloween in general. Remember, she raises my niece seeew just when she thought she was done, she's doing it all over again. If you follow us on Instagram and Facebook, last weekend she invited me over to show me these adorable yet sophisticated table runners. Apparently...someone was busy sewing.
There are three colorways available to purchase...just part of that Hollyhill Difference. Not only do we have kits made ahead of time for your convenience, but we even give you three choices!
The one above is our Aqua version. Or in my world..."Potion Green." Everyone loves those pumpkins but I'm going to disappoint you for a minute....we don't sell them. I know. I know. Dry your eyes.
The Black version is reflective of a traditional Halloween and goes great with some of your favorite Halloween accessories.
I have to admit, I've never had a licorice Jelly Bean but now I'm addicted.
Emotional Eater Present and Accounted For. Seriously, I'm stressed and when I'm stressed, I snack. Ok...well maybe I devour, but whatever.
Now, there is one more version and seeeew far on Shoppe email we've only advertised two. Seeew consider yourselves special as you are the first to see the Orange version, which I will post to the website when it is ready. The difference between the Orange and Black version is the color of the words on the end of each runner.
If you are not aware, the "Mothership" is hosting a monthly Breakfast Club one Saturday per month. For this month's Breakfast Club (which is now full) on Saturday, September 27 she's been putting together kits for her little reveal. While I can't show you the exact project, I can share that the first project will be using Sweetwater's Boo Crew. Boo Crew is another great collection chalk full of basics that we keep year round for your favorite Halloween project.
The fee for the Breakfast Club includes materials to make the featured month's project. Who else in Quilt World packages up a cute little project like that? Our Breakfast Club members are also treated to a breakfast snack from Priscilla - Queen of the Dessert. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own projects for a show-n-tell which makes this a true two hour quilting exchange! The next Breakfast Club that you can register for is Saturday, October 25 2014. Don't delay as space is limited and it seems to be something everyone loves!
We make a lot of things around here with the Moda pre-cuts. If you are overlooking pre-cuts, you have no idea what you are missing! Here's a new quilt kit in which we recently finished the sample. This is a pattern from Barb & Mary of Me & My Sister Designs and it uses our favorite pre-cut - the Jelly Roll. Love the border!
The next one is my personal favorite because of that black background and Melissa's spiders in the quilting! Those stars in our Star Bright Quilt are made from a Layer Cake and we just might have two Boo Crew Layer Cakes around here somewhere. I know we have one or two Fat Quarter Bundles left for those of you who love to collect bundles and stare at them. Seriously...how can you not love the perfection? Take 20 pictures while you're looking at it and it becomes an obsession!
Can you believe it's already September and we are having 80-90 degree weather? It's gross. I'm ready for fall!
To kick fall off, leave a comment on this post telling me what you love about "fall" (does it include a trip to Hollyhill????) and you just might win a Boo Crew Dessert Roll! Then hop over to our Facebook and "Like" us by Saturday for a chance to win the new Day Sail Charm Pack by Bonnie & Camille (the collection arrives in 2015). Two chances to win but you've got to leave comments answering my questions:-) I ask a lot of questions, it's my way of testing your reading and comprehension skills.
Alright it's time for me to make like Hazel and fly.
"Take care of you..." <----said like Kit to Viv.
