Welcome October!

Happy fall!

We're looking forward to some cooler, crisp weather and what better way to celebrate than to show you the beautiful fall projects that were sent in for this month's Minis and More Parade!

Sherri McConnell did a wonderful Fall Placemat Tutorial at the end of August that we used for the featured project for this month's Parade.

We'll start with Mindy's two wonderful placemats.  She made one with cute pumpkins and the other with little leaves.  I love that she used fall colors and that she has some pops of aqua and green too!

Our next beautiful entry is from Vickie. She added the fall leaves on both sides of her placemats and she used a quilt as you go method to get them quilted and ready to use quickly!  They are adorable! 

And now here's mine.  I was planning on using fall fabric scraps and while I was sorting through them, I came across these leftover squares that I had already sewn together for another project.  I decided to incorporate them into my fall tabletopper.

The Parade for next month will feature another cute free tutorial from Sherri!

I remember when she did her original post about it and I'm so excited make a few now.

You can find it by clicking on this link to Sherri's Simple Patchwork Bag Tutorial.

I was think this adorable little bag would make a wonderful holiday gift or even a sweet hostess gift for Thanksgiving or any other gathering that you could be attending.

And you just may need to make a few for yourself too!

When you're finished with your bag, take a picture and send it to Sherri or to me and we'll be sure it goes in next month's Minis and More Parade.

 With each Parade entry you're eligible to win the random drawing for the monthly prize.

Last month's winner of some newly released precuts was Mindy!

I can't wait to see those cute Patchwork Bags!

I like how everyone did something different. They all look great and I like how Mindy added the pumkins.

Cute little fall projects! I'm sitting at my dining room table as I type this and I'm thinking I really need new placemats! :-)
