A WITCH, DOLL QUILT and 2 BAGS

While digging around in my fabric closed, I came across a panel for making a witch that I had gotten at a garage sale in the past.  Since it is almost Halloween, I decided to make it.  Here she is sitting on our TV cabinet in the living room.

I'm also making some things to sell at a craft show and I had a bunch of fabric left over from a quilt I had made with lots of HSTs already done, so I made this pinwheel doll quilt.

I quilted feathers in the border which can barely be seen, but this morning when I placed it on my ironing board in the sun, they showed up pretty good.

Today I'm going to a retirement party for two of my very good friends from work.  I decided to make them each a bag as a retirement gift.

The buttons are sewn on in the shape of Texas.  I hope they like their bags!  The pattern is named "The Texas Tote" and is from Serendipity Gifts.

Your feathers look awesome! It's a cute little quilt. And the witch is adorable. All but her pointy shoes look friendly. :) I never would have thought to sew buttons on in the shape of a state...very creative.

Well done. Did you use reclaimed denim for the bags?

Not a big witch fan, but I love the feather quilting and the denim bags. Such a good use of worn out jeans!!

Your little witch is so cute! Reminds me that I need to get out my Halloween decorations. And quilts.
The doll quilt is adorable and your feathers look fantastic. Wish I could do those.
Cute denim bags and what a great idea to sew on buttons in the shape of Texas.
Happy stitching.
