So, today is my day and I want to show you my block. I drew three Ghosts stacking up Pumpkins.
After my previous paper pieced block...This was a piece of cake! I once again dug into my scraps (one of my favorite things to do. Course I have so much) I was in high search for the right shades of orange for the pumpkin and wanted green to look like grass and blue to look like the dark sky.
I used Lite Steam-a-Seam II and cut out all my pieces and sewed my grass and sky together.
Next I arranged them onto my block where I thought they looked good. I pressed them in place then machine appliqued them on using the blanket stitch. Then squared my block to a 10 1/2" square.
Unfortunately I have so many things going at this time, I did not yet figure out what I am going to do with it. I am leaning toward making a pillow. Or add it to the one I made before, the paper pieced ghost. Or, make a small wall hanging with it. What do you think?
I do want to share my Wall hanging I made earlier. I call it "Come On In". This one is 22 " X 33 1/2" . I have it hung on my entry door.
Here is another that I made last year. Everyone who knows me, knows I like to be different and have fun. "Trick Or Treat" Total size is 36" X 17".
Now that you seen my block, I want to ask you to continue on this Wicket Hop and check out all the others that posted today. Here is the list:
