Halloween embroidery

With all of the hustle and bustle going on around here over getting the Winter issue of Quilting Celebrations out the door, I keep forgetting to give you peeks of other things going on.

I'm really excited about my new embroidery collections coming soon from Amazing Designs. I've been getting the stitch-outs/proofs a little at a time and the quality of the digitizing is wonderful! There's going to be instructions for a bonus project on the CD and I wanted you to get the first look at it.

Here's a pic of the mini banner I designed using two of the designs from the collection (you can click the image to enlarge). It's a great little project to complete in an evening and its manageable size and a fun hanger make it easy to find a place for it to be displayed when you're finished making it.

The jack-o'-lantern is a motif from my "Boo to You!" pattern and is applique embroidery which is super popular right now. I chose my Satinesque Stripe, in orange, for the pumpkin and it worked perfectly. In black, the same print is great for the borders and binding. The candy corn motif is perfect for the corner blocks or for scattering all over your other embroidered Halloween pieces.

I'll have more to show you soon from this Halloween collection but there's also a Christmas collection coming. So, those of you who have been waiting so long for new designs from me will have lots of new embroideries to choose from. Be watching my website to get yours as soon as they're available! I believe the Halloween collection comes out at the end of this month :)

The drawing board is calling me so that's all for now. I hope all is well with you.



  1. Okay, Patrick, this is WAY cute!!! I'm so impressed with everything you are doing!!!

  2. Patrick, I ran right over from facebook and you're still teasing us. I can't wait to see the new stuff.

  3. The new things are adorable.. I may need to get an embroidery machine~

    I like that you have added colors to your collections and that there are subtle changes in the colors. I just need to own some of all (sigh!)
    I am waiting for PEACE ~~~~~~
