I just love this time of year. It's so full of beautiful colors, and events that bring people together. My favorite activity is decorating for all our special holidays. We had a very long and warm summer this year for the Pacific Northwest, so I was ready for autumn. I thought for our November Candle Mat, a beautiful leaf and acorns in fall colors from our Quilters Candy collection would be more than perfect.

I decided that I needed deadlines to accomplish some quilting/sewing goals I set for myself, so I signed up for some projects for Gifty Galore. I saw these adorable Chevron pillows in the book Pillow Pop and decided they would look super cute in my house!
I selected fabrics that I thought would look good in my family room. I decorated it quite a few years ago now in my “wallpaper phase” and it may not be trendy but I still like it.

Happy October! Yep, I know, this October Candle Mat was predictable, right?! But, this little pumpkin guy is so cute with his smiley face and sparkly eyes. He sports a skeleton chin and a pirate hat (stem). The little 3-1/2" blocks along the side are very easy to assemble and it's fusible appliqué. You can really have him constructed in an afternoon!
