WIP Wednesday: Pumpkin Carving and House Building

Not real pumpkins though.

The last time I posted about my October wall hanging it looked like this...

...and I managed to get all of the fusible applique pieces put on this week!

Now I need to get myself to Joann to buy some orange and yellow thread. That's not something a quilter says often. "I need to buy orange thread!"

I also have been making a little happy house here and there from scraps and now have a 5 house neighborhood! (Pattern is from Quiltmaker magazine!)

I've run out of this blue and grey fabric that I have been using for the sky at this point, but I found a solid blue fat quarter in my stash that I think will look good with these ones.

I think my favorite one thus far is the teal one in the center of the bottom row. I managed to fussy cut all of the pieces so that the stripes all go in the same direction -- so fancy!
