Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along

I recently joined this group (button in my sidebar)--it looked like fun! I haven't "collected" very many jelly rolls, so I wasn't sure what I was going to use, but I soon realized I had this in my stash:


I had to "borrow" the background fabric from what I'd set aside for the Hocuspocusville embroidery project, but I've ordered more to replace it. Since the quilt along will end in August, I thought this was a perfect chance to make a Halloween quilt--I should have just enough time to quilt the finished quilt before it's time to decorate for Halloween! Here's my first block:


Each block for this project is being designed by a different designer and a new block is posted twice a month. If you're interested, check it out! We'll be posting photos of our blocks on Flickr and there will be prizes--and who doesn't like prizes? Just in case you don't have any jelly rolls, I think it's okay if you want to use your scraps. Maybe I'll see you over in the Flickr pool!

I've seen this block on a couple other blogs participating in this challenge, but I LOVE the idea of a Halloween theme. Your first block is wonderful!
