Pineapp-O-Lantern Pillow

Aloha y’all. It’s October and that means one thing, and one thing only. Halloween. If I still lived on the mainland, I’d probably be sewing pumpkins right now, but I’m in Hawaii so…

The pineapp-o-lantern is a beginner project – nothing more than squares, half-square triangles and a couple of quarter-square triangles. I’ll be adding the full pattern in the next couple of days but here’s the layout for now. Grab a stack of 2.5″ squares, click on the link below and get started. ­čÖé

The Scrappy Camper Strikes Again

My youngest daughter is heading off to summer camp next week, so I took a break from quilting to make┬áher this pillow case and yoga mat bag. (It’s yoga camp. How cool is that!)

These are both quick and easy projects. I could have finished them both in one day if I’d applied myself a little harder. The yoga bag is a free pattern from Amy Butler. She has a ton of cute projects, all free on her website. If you haven’t checked it out, you definitely should.

The pillowcase is a great first project for beginning sewers. Trust me, anyone can do it, and everyone could use more pillowcases, right?
