Today is day #2 on the Wicked Blog Hop dreamed up by Madame Samm and hosted by Wicked Wendy ! This is going to be an awesome blog hop for all of you Halloween lovers!! There are going to be witches and goblins and black cats a' plenty!! So come on in with your costumes on and enjoy the party! I have my witches cauldron brewing and will be serving up some spider cider tonight! yum yum!
I just got word that there are some other quilters handing out Halloween candy today so when you are full of spider cider, take off to the other parties to see what they have for you!!
23rd of October
My first initial idea was to do a witches hat in the crazy quilt design but then I heard there might be some other crazy quilting going on and I wanted to do something different. I love working with batiks and black fabric. I googled free witch patterns online and found Sonja's blog with this wicked witch all done up in paper piecing! arrgghhh
I DO NOT DO PAPER PIECING! IT HATES ME!!
As much as I hate spiders!!
So, I improvised! ha!!!
A little Steam A Seam lite does the trick!! I traced around the paper pieced pattern shape and ironed me some fusible to the black fabric and in no time I had me some witches flying on their brooms! ha!
I wanted to do a table runner but 4 turned out to be too long but 3 was just perfect!
I will have to make a candle mat with the 4th block!
I wanted to show you a little quilt that my friend Donna sent to me last year. I think I blogged it but don't remember if I did so I am showing it anyway. I just love it and it has Halloween written all over it!
It plays so nicely with the witches. :)
And I must show you a beautiful witch dotee doll that my friend Lois made for me! Art of this caliber should be shared and it doesn't matter how many times! :)
The backside of her dress is so pretty!
Spider and all!
And look... She is holding a pig charm in her hand!
She better not put him in her cauldron!!!
I hope you have enjoyed my Halloween Wicked Party!!
I have something to give away to one lucky reader!!
These 2 Halloween towels and a bag of Tootsie Roll Pops is going to come flying in on my witches broom to one lucky person! Yes, you aren't seeing things... My hubby ate your candy!! BUT, I will buy another bag! I promise!
