    I went a little crazy at JoAnns on Halloween fabrics. I've made two purses that turned out well. Sorry I can't post them. (We have dial-up so the pics don't load for some reason.) I have about 8 different fabrics with 1/4 yd to 2 1/2 yd lengths. What do you suggest I make that would be quick and easy? I would need to finish something and get it in the mail within in a month probably. Anxious to hear your suggestions.

    How about placemats, tablerunners, pot holders, a small wallhanging or a doorhanging. Candlemat or coasters. Lots of small gift items ideas!

    These all sound good, along with the pillow cases for something really fast!

    These are soooo cute. I need to do a log cabin pattern. Everyone keeps telling me how versatile it is, and from your second picture, I can tell that's very accurate.

    AnnaK: I love your pumpkins. Did you have a pattern or just know how to put them together? I've been looking at my magazines for some instructions for all the suggestions. Better try to make a decision soon.

    I made a Halloween disappearing 9 patch, keeping the middle square of each 9 patch a solid orange and the center squares on each side the same black print. The corner squares were identical in each block, but varied from block to block (depending on how many squares I could cut out of the fabrics I had). I cut my squares 3 1/2" for the 9 patches, the finished d9p block finished about 8". I liked the look of a sort of controlled scrappy quilt, and I liked the smaller block size. Sorry, I don't know how to post pics or I would.
