In which a very low-energy me shares what I was up to last week. You’ve got one more week to leave a Picnic-themed quilt name for a (hopefully!) fun prize! Comment wherever you watch, I’m keeping track and will choose a name next week.
In which I share a FINISHED quilt top as well as my brand new Star Wars-inspired design, available on Fandom in Stitches.
I also ask for your help naming my new quilt. I’m looking for a unique name that uses the word “picnic” in the title. Google tells me that this is not a new idea and I would love your help! If I use your idea, I’ll send you a prize (TBD).
Many Texans still find themselves without water & power after last week’s storms. This affects food access for both families and individuals. My family donated to the Central Texas Food Bank. If you’re able, please consider donating there or any other food bank in an affected area. Thank you. ♥
Update…I did venture out and make the round trip to rescue my daughter, her boyfriend, and Marie cat. They live VERY close, so even driving super slow and carefully, I wasn’t out very long. It is a huge relief to have them all safe and warm at home with us. ♥
I haven’t shared anything aside from Talk To Me Tuesday since having surgery, and since it is October, my favorite month, I couldn’t resist doing a roundup of my own Halloween and fall patterns and tutorials!
I’ve included both Free Patterns & Retired shop patterns below. As a compromise for those who want access to my previously for sale patterns, I will share the pattern of your choice for a small donation to a local-to-you non-profit. More info below with the Retired Patterns.
To date, wonderful quilters have donated over $300 to a wide variety of charities, donated food, clothing, and hundreds of masks to those who need them. Your charitable efforts make my heart swell with happiness and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
What are your favorite things to make for Halloween? I’d love to see! Let me know in comments or share over in the Sewhooked Facebook Group!You can also tag me on Instagram – @sewhookedjen.
RETIRED SHOP PATTERNS
I retired my online quilt pattern shop December 31, 2019 but I still receive quite a few requests for retired patterns.I decided the best way to address that was to have those interested in a retired pattern make a small donation to a local-to-you non-profit of your choice. Email your receipt and I’ll be happy to send the pattern. Please, only one pattern per receipt.
If you’re unsure if a pattern is FREE (I have loads of those, check out the main menu on sewhooked.com), or RETIRED, just drop me an email or comment and I’ll let you know.
Full discloser: This pattern is hot off the press and has not been tested. If you make it and have problems, please let me know and I’ll get it edited asap. I’m releasing it pre-testing because it’s Super Tuesday and, well, it feels relevant.
This is me and my fella, voting earlier today, sporting our own “I Voted” stickers.

The lovely Janina made these 12″ paper pieced trees using two of my free patterns to send to Australia for the quilt block collection by Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild. The blocks will be used to make quilts for families affected by the bushfires in New South Wales.
