We are on Vacation!


Our Shipping and Production Departments have been super busy and so we are giving them a much deserved vacation until April 5th.  Don't worry you can still place orders in the shop but they will not be shipped out until after April 5th when they return.

Thank you for understanding. - CANARY CREATED TEAM

If you look through my shop you will see that I tend to like skulls, but I just like the monster theme in general.  My block that I’m going to show you is an original!  I drew from my love of Zombies and “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”, and.. I learned these little zombie felties from the book by Sarah Skeate “Zombie Felties”.  I have built some zombie felties in the past and as I was coming up with my idea for a block, I wondered what would happen if the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch were “zombified”!

My background is made from a dark purple upcycled wool sweater I found at Goodwill.  I washed and dryed it on high heat to shrink it down to use.  The sign is made from wood printed fabric fused to a piece of Muslin so that I could place it on the block and have it still look 3D.  I freemotion quilted the “Pumpkins 4 Sale” on it.  This sign was inspired from a Pumpkins 4 Sale wall hanging I made with my Mom a few years ago.

The Zombie Pumpkins are all made from pieces of felt cut out to look like little zombies had sprung up from the pumpkin patch.  I have represented the orange pumpkins, the yellow colored pumpkins, and the green pumpkins.

 I don’t have a pattern for this block, it is 10.5″ block and just came to life from my brain!  It could be transferred easily to a fabric block is anyone is interested.
