I've been working on a few projects for my fall seasonal decor! I love to make stack-and-whack quilt blocks--they are fun, easy, quick, and a great use for the fabric stash. Check out Bethany Reynolds' Stack and Whack books! I made two sets of five blocks in fall prints and stitched five together in a row for the runner, with borders and a flat piping insert and contrast binding to set off the blocks. I used the other five blocks to make Georgie Melot's fabulous quick serged pot holders from her wonderful book, Ready, Set, Serge. It's recommended! Great projects and a fun way to learn serger skills. The potholders literally take minutes each to make. I couldn't resist making piles more to share, from my fabric stash. Big fun!
