My Completed Halloween Swap Blocks

Here are my completed blocks I sent in for Janes Halloween swap.....THIS.ONE.I.LIKE...


Do these pumpkins and ghost look familiar Gail (no blog)????


Thanks for sending these cutie fabrics too Gail!!!


This is w-a-y cute too! Baby pumpkins and ghosts.


Ghosts and Candy Corn anyone????


This ghost and ghoul fabric is really vibrant in person.


Now this is what I'm talking about.......probable my favorite!!!


For my group I signed up to do BOO letters.....but I couldn't get the word to look right in the required 12 1/2" block size.......it needed something else.........SO......I drew out this ghost to sit atop the BOO.


I determined since this was a larger design I should paper piece it instead of free piecing it. I sewed up the design in 3 separate sections and assembled those 3 together...positioning the little hands where they would fit in the required size.


Since I drew out my own pattern there was A LOT of figuring out as I went along AND A LOT of RIPPING OUT! I think it was well worth it though...I think they turned out pretty cute!!!


Deana over at Dream Worthy Quilts sent me this block. She and I did a private swap with each other. Aren't the dangle-ee witchey legs just the Cutest?? Thanks Deana.....I love it!
