Hello Fall - Welcome y'all

 I can't believe it's the end of September already. I was just kinda getting ready to do my August post.  Oh well.

In between making the items I was planning on posting in August I was working on my Hello Fall goodies.  Thank you Carla for coordinating yet another wonderful get together of so many long time quilty friends.

I worked on several small projects for fall for this post using some of my favorite quilting stuff.  I did a bit of embroidery, some piecing by machine, some quilting by hand and some use of my printer.  I'm even gonna have a give away.

Lets start with the embroidery.  Back in July I got  the Anita Good designs for a group of embroidered cards.  The design choices included 4 wonderful Fall goodies.  

I did start with this wonderful card.  

But we all know that I couldn't let that alone so I whipped out a terrific pin cushion 

The other 2 designs worked themselves into  a couple of small mug rugs.  All of the designs started at the same size but I needed to try going to max larger and max smaller.

Then I grouped  three of them  for a Halloween  table runner.

Again I maxed larger the haunted house and maxed smaller the 2 designs with the spiders.  I did the small designs on each side of the house, then I attached them to a piece of felt and added a simple binding.

I follow Kristi of  where I find lovely watercolor designs. Lots and lots of them are free and some are for purchase. She covers all the seasons and lots of occasions and misc fun stuff. She posted several fall freebies and I ran with the idea of printing them out onto some white fabric.

The purple in the photo is tape that is holding the fabric to freezer paper for the ride through the printer.

I downloaded 4 designs.  This one just begged to be a pin cushion and wanted to be hand quilted.

And of course I had to come up with a mug rug.

And this one was so pretty I wanted to carry it around with me so I made an easy peasy back pack. I downsized it a wee bit from the original back pack pattern.

Yes there is one left to use. I'm thinking a post card.  Time will tell.

So now on to the give away.   If your name is picked from the list of lovely people who leave a comment, which pin cushion would you prefer, the haunted house or the apple? I'll pick a name on September 28 AM.

I hope you are following along with all of the wonderfully creative posts included on this hop.  I'm including a list of all of us for your convenience.  Take care and stay safe.
