Halloween Haunts Blog Hop! Welcome!

Hello! It`s my turn to share my Halloween Haunts project. Please visit the other folks taking part as well. Their links are below this post.  I wanted a reversible table mat perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The pumpkin and floral fabrics were in my stash. I purchased the scarecrow fabric on Etsy.  I`ve been wanting to use the floral print for Christmas a long time. The reds, greens and metallic threads are perfect.  The pumpkin / scarecrow  side is sixteen, 6 inch blocks. The back is one piece. I`ve had that fabric a long time. So glad I was able to use it. The finished size is 22 inches square. 




Thank you Marian, our hostess and creator of this Hop. It`s been fun!

Below is today`s list of participants with more projects to share. Some are sharing tutorials and many are having Giveaways. Thanks for visiting!

    1. Hi Sandy! The pumpkin fabric was in a box of remnants a friend gave me. It feels like a nice quality cotton and it had not`t been washed so it was a dream to sew with. I appreciate your comment. Thanks!

    1. Thank you Tara. I found the scarecrow fabric on Etsy. It is from 1994, a nice quality cotton. The pumpkin print was left on my doorstep with other remnants.. Nice neighborhood. Vegetables and fabric are not uncommon on my front steps. It`s that kind of place.

  16. Super smart idea - I do get a little behind at swapping out my runners - this would really be much easier (meaning Valentines would not STILL be on my table as I type)!
