Did you see the latest pattern? It's by Nanette of Freda's Hive. I think you already know that I've been tweeking the patterns to fit my Halloween theme, and this one's no exception; but this time I had to cheat a little bit--I used some fabric from my stash that's not from the Spooktacular line I've been using up until this point. I probably should be beaten with a fabric noodle for my transgressions!
So here's what I came up with this time:
The completion of block 6 means I'm half way done--it sure has gone by fast! I thought I'd put all six blocks on the design wall to see how they look so far (they're in order with block 1 starting on the top left).
I have plans to add some embroidery to a couple of the blocks--the first block needs some words added into the white strips, and I'm thinking about embroidering "Knock Knock" onto the Franc N. Stein block. That would go in the white strip in the center of the block.
I usually prefer square quilts, so I'm thinking about adding four more blocks to what the designers give us--maybe I'll make some applique blocks, but I'm not sure. I think I'll wait and see what the next several blocks bring. If you haven't been "playing along" with this so far, it's not too late to join. The blocks are pretty quick to make and you don't REALLY need a jelly roll. No one's going to kick you out if you make your blocks from stash or whatever suits you. Trust me--I'm a rule-breaker, so I know what I'm talking about!
