Ok, ok, I’m probably overdoing it with the “Sew” titles but I think I’m compensating for not have enough actual sewing time. (See my previous post…I have a new job, oh, and there’s a giveaway there, too.) So, here’s what I was working on….I won this cool basket of Halloween fabrics at guild and found a few more on the free table.
I had some really good help…
And some not-so-good but oh so cute help.
And I finally had to concede that my grand plan was not going to happen in time for this year’s hop.
But quilting is all about learning to adjust, right? We run out of fabric and find another. We discover that the points don’t quite match and we love it anyway. And, above all, we use that wonderful creative side of our brains. Or, we use what other wonderful, creative brains have done an that is just what I did. I used Tonya Ricucci’s letters (from her Wordplay book) and Soma of Whims and Fancies paper-pieced pattern to make this little wall hanging.
Those aren’t borders, it’s pinned to my dining room shades at the moment and I wish I could capture the spooky effect the eyes have when it’s dark in the room. I’m thinking of binding it in black and hanging it on my door for Halloween…what do you think?
In the meantime, there’s a little giveaway of, you guessed it, Halloween fabrics.
These fat quarters will all go to one person and, yes, I will ship internationally. To enter, just leave me a comment and tell me how you would finish this mini…border, no border, black binding, orange binding…or whatever else you’d like to chime in on.
Also, there’s a Fat Quarter Shop drawing for every day of the hop! You can enter here as soon as I figure out how to add the codes. Click here for now!
In the meantime, hop over to my fellow haunters and see what chilling things they’ve stitched up! Sew much fun! (Oops, I did mean to stop that!)
Oh, and a special thank you to Marian from Seams to be Sew for all her work putting this together!
