Over on Instagram I’ve been working on fabric designs and mocking up quilt blocks to test them out. A couple of weeks ago I did a little mini-collection inspired by the Amazon and this was my favorite critter I created. I love tree frogs!

I loved this guy so much, I decided to make him the June calendar critter. πŸ™‚

October Free Desktop Wallpaper

Happy October!

It’s Monster Month! Woo hoo!

I love monsters, but I try to keep it in check most of the time. I know you don’t want monster patterns every month!

But in October, I let loose with All The Monsters, All The Time. πŸ˜„

Download your wallpaper below. There are options both with and without the October calendar.

That monster is one of the blocks in the Mix & Match Monsters quilt pattern.

Isn’t that purple batik I used for his body fabulous? Batik is especially lovely for applique. It’s usually a very tight weave so it tends not to fray, and the little bit of fraying that occurs is practically invisible because batiks are dyed all the way through, so there are no white threads on the fabric back. Look for some colorful batik fat quarter bundles in the shop later this month!

Have a terrific month!

Download your wallpaper below – there are options both with and without the September calendar.
