Halloween Haunts, 2015

Today is my day to show you all what I made for "Halloween Haunts, 2015”


Thank you so much Marian (Seems to be Sew).  For all your hard work organizing this hop.  I am so happy you are bringing back the hops.  I know I have missed them and seeing all kinds of projects AND talking to other quilters.



Now for what I have made.
First, is a Mug Rug.  Since I am one that always has some kind of drink with me, either coffee, tea, water, etc.  I have lots of mug rugs around.  That way my cup, or glass, will not make things wet.  So I came up with this:


I just love doing appliqué, but these guys were printed on some scrap fabric I found.  I cut them out careful and WaLaa!


Then I made a little coaster to match:


After staring at my Halloween fabric, eating some chocolate (gotta have my chocolate, lol) I came up with this wall hanging:


I painted white dots for eyes on the bats, and gold for the cats.


I then made 2 welcome banners:




Well, I guess you had all heard by now that Fat Quarter Shop is giving away a $25.00 gift certificate every day of the blog hop.   Wow!!  How great is that!
So, don't forget to enter!  They not only have the latest fabrics but their customer service is the Best!


I am so sorry I cannot link to the Raffelcopter.  I read Marian's directions many times, did it just like she said but with no luck. I think it is because I am doing it on my phone.  (My only way to get on the internet)  I am sure the others who are posting today will have the link.  If not, you will find it at Marian's

But Wait... before you go, I am also giving away ONE panel,
 (12" X 44”) of Maxine Halloween faric.
Just leave me a comment, 
(Anyone can enter for I will send it anywhere!)


(Fabric is folded, here is both sides)



I will keep it going through October 28th  and post the winner on October 29th.
So good luck to all.  It is adorable fabric, I got some for myself also.

Now that you seen what I have made...
Come, grab your broom and fly with me to check out the others that posted today.



HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE!!

AND

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

I have to check out the rest of your blog...this was such a fun post. I love it all. I have never seen that Maxine fabric and would really love to have it. I'm going to check for it on line too, because even if I win, I CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH MAXINE!! I think I'll have to follow you. After seeing your seam ripper cartoon I am compelled to tell you that if I visit Joann's and can't find anything to buy with my 40% coupon I get a seam ripper....where do they go!!

Wow, such cute projects.. and sew many. Love them all. Your fussy cut skeletons and sunflowers are amazing. You have a lot of patience. The cat was my daughter's fav.
