It's A Wild Life November Block Of The Month

We're coming close to the end of the It's A Wild Life block of the month,
but there's already another one in the works that will start in February...woohoo!
This month's block adds a bit of stinker to the quilt, but I don't think he'll be too much 
of a problem because he seems to be quite distracted by something else.

Wishful Love
Unfinished size: 12 1/2" x 24 1/2"

Sew Incredibly Crazy has a giveaway each month, but you have to make the block
and link it on her blog. It's easy to do and the giveaways are always amazing!

I'm using Riley Blake Designs fabrics in all my blocks, including
Confetti, Kisses, and Crayola. I love all their fabrics!

Wandering Camera In October

I managed to do a little Wandering Camera photo shots on a day trip to
Zion National Park in Utah. The views were spectacular!

There were so many red rocks and mountains, each changing to lighter or
darker red depending on which way we were driving. 

There was so much texture in all those rocks, too!

A few deer and mountain sheep popped up for quick glances.

A rare moment of an empty road. Zion has millions of visitors each year.

The tunnel...I was scared of this when I was a kid. It's still kind of spooky and very dark.

A few flowers were still hanging in there before the cold hits.

It was a fabulous day!

Another day was spent at Grandpa's Pond, a favorite picnic spot.

It was a perfect setting for my shark quilt. There's no sharks in this pond,
but they did remove an alligator from there last year. Apparently, someone
thought it would be a good place to drop off their overgrown pet. Yikes!

This guy came in for a close-up.

That blue eye is gorgeous!

Of course, there had to be a bug...in this case it was a bee.

Thanks for stopping by today for a quick view of my September Wandering Camera.

A Creepy "Peek A Boo Who" To You On My Blog Hop Day

Halloween is just plain creepy and fun, especially when creative people get together
to show off their spooky projects. Thank you, Marian at Seams To Be Sew, for
making it easy to share our creepiness with all of you in the Peek A Who Blog Hop!
Today is my day to share!

The Ghastlies have always been one of my favorite fabrics during Halloween,
though they are pretty cool for any time of the year. I fell in love with the pink skirt
girl because she totally reminds me of my sister, Susan, who is cute on the outside
but wickedly crazy like me on the inside. In runs in our family!

I only used three of my Ghastlie fabrics for this quilt and paper pieced the center block.

I enlarged this block to 18" x 18" to paper piece it. You can right click on it to save
it to your own pattern stash if you want to give it a try. It's very easy!

The border fabric of dueling Ghastlies has so much detail in it, as do all the Ghastlie fabrics.
I love them all!

 This Halloween season has had me sewing a quite a few other things.
Some of you have already seen them, but in case you haven't...

Bellagosa's Favorite Hats
Pattern found HERE in my Craftsy store

Ms. Winifred's Closet
Pattern found HERE in my Craftsy store and a laser cut kit found HERE at Quilted Works.

Velcome To My House
Pattern can be found HERE in my Craftsy store

Here's the other Halloween loving bloggers who are participating...check them out!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have the spookiest and happiest Halloween ever!

But, wait!

It's A Shark Quilt!

I'd made a shark quilt a while back using Riley Blake Design fabric and it
was quite a hit for a cute boy I know, but he wanted a bigger one in the same fabric.
He helped design it and drew a label for me to add.

It's A Shark!

We took a trip to "Grandpa's Pond" in Hurricane, Utah, to take photos.

I love the quilting by Quilted Works!

I added some applique to the label he drew and stitched his signature.
Yes, it took me since January to get this totally put together, but at least I finished it!

I think he'll be a happy boy to know I finally finished his quilt.

A New Bona Lisa Block Arrives Today

 The first of the month means a new block for Bona Lisa's Sweater Emporium. It's just Carla sharing her spooktacular talent on this ...
