Harvest JOY Wall Hanging Layout and a Fall Giveaway

Harvest JOY Wall hanging layout

The layout guide for the Harvest JOY Wall hanging is ready. It's actually been up over at the facebook group for a little bit but I forgot to mention it here!
{It's kind of like when you tell your kids to do something in your head and then think you've done it in real life and wonder what's up.}
It's a layout guide only - it does have links in it to all of the different blocks to make it so if you haven't started yet you can use the guide as a reference tool to make it later.

And I honestly didn't mean to leave you in suspense about my little Fall panel and what I planned to do with it. I am focusing on making a quilt to be published and I have a hard time switching gears once I am really into a project. 

Anyway. THIS is how I plan to deal with the distraction. . . .




Panel with mini charms for fall give away


I'm going to give it away to one of you! LOL



I really like it and think there are lots of possibilities here which deserved to be played with and created and enjoyed. Maybe you will be the lucky one!

I don´t buy kits, my experience has been bad both times I did and since then I prefer to buy patterns and fabrics separately.

I have not bought kits for the basic reason that I like to make my projects unique and personal. I get lots of ideas from what the kit offers, but will change it up by choosing my own fabrics.

I have bought several quilt kits-all to make baby quilts. Don't think I'd do it again. The "pro" is that the fabrics go together so nicely (which I struggle with) but the "con" is that the fabric quality is not always the best.

Vicki H September 24, 2015 at 8:38 PM  

I usually buy a pattern and use my own fabrics. A lot of the kits I like usually have a fabric or two that I don't care for.

I buy kits for small thanks like table mats, especially if they are wool ones. I havE also bought kits if here are lots f small pieces needed such as a Makenna Ryan pattern- saves money!

I like buying quilts for special projects like Christmas wall hangings or a baby quilt. Otherwise I stick to scrappy.

I have not bought a kit yet. I probably will in the future, I'm just sort of new to sewing and on a strict budget!

I have never bought a kit. I am a newbie so have stuck to some simple designs from magazines using scraps that I had. Then it doesn't matter if it all goes wrong!

I do not buy quilt kits but will buy smaller kits for projects like wall hangings etc. I know too many people who had issues w/ quilt kits! thank you and I love your fall quilt!

Rebecca September 25, 2015 at 10:56 AM  

I don't buy kits because they are too expensive. So this would be a treat!

Katy M September 25, 2015 at 3:35 PM  

I've bought sewing kits in the past, I love how you have everything that you need all together but I've never bought a sewing kit x

I just bought a kit. I am new at quilting so I bought a kit with the material to get me started.

Sarah September 26, 2015 at 5:29 PM  

I don't buy kits, because my favorite part of quilting is picking the fabrics to make something with. I also love scraps... I think one thing that would entice me to buy a kit would be if I could pick the fabric from the shop, or if they would send me a little bag of scraps along with the kit for variety. sarah@forrussia.org

This is so cute and purrfect for Halloween! I don't buy kits. I like choosing my own fabric combinations. 24Tangent@gmail.com

Interesting bunch of data collection. I buy kits only when its super attractive and had fabulous fabric that I rarely see.

Lori September 30, 2015 at 7:48 AM  

i have never bought a quilt kit. so far I have enjoyed the process of picking my own fabrics/colors and cutting each to size.
But getting one is on my to do list
this is so adorable. I only do fun and happy harvest stuff. I can see this in my sisters house.

Shirley in Canada September 30, 2015 at 10:53 PM  

Kits? Oh my, I started to buy them but they were never the size I wanted so I would buy two of them. Still have to make them though LOL

Hello Joy, it's so nice to meet you.
I usually buy lap or twin size quilt kits, wall hangings. Usually purchase at local quilt shops or quilt shows/expos. It's like a box of candy, all things pretty tasty inside and everything ready to sew.
YOur Harvest Joy Sampler is my favorite...I love Orange, and Autumn.
Thank you.
