You Shoulda Coulda...

And once you see these you'll wish you woulda!!

Awhile back I showed you a sneak peak of my block for Aunt Pitty Pats Halloween swap.   The swap was complete and I got all my blocks last week!!

Here's what I sent out, for my part of the swap...
 
 
And these are what I got back!!
I love that "nose"!
 
Haunted House with the coolest background!
 
"Eek" is right with all those little eyeballs lookin at me!
 
Any great witch starts with a fabulous pair of shoes!
 
Just crazy batty & I love the metallic background!

Itsy, bitsy spider. The background on this crazy wild. It makes my eyes roll!
I LOVE IT!
 
Give me candy!!  :-)

This block is so cool looking.

With a schnoz like that!!! She even has a bow with ghosts attached!!
Is that just the cutest??

Hoo Hoo Who-ty Owl!

Trick or treat!!

And lastly, my Boo block!
 
My block theme was Pumpkins and I was delighted to find this pattern in my collection of old quilt magazines. This guy, named "Happy Jack" was in the September/October 2009 issue of Fons and Porters Love of Quilting magazine. I enlarged him a bit to fit the 12 1/2" block requirement.
 
So like I said, "don't ya wish ya woulda????
 
It's not too late for the next swap.

Now you know, you don't want to miss another one!
 
As for me... I need to put my thinking cap on, and decide how to put my Halloween blocks together...  I sure would love to hear your ideas!
Who knows, there just might be something in it for YOU!!
But I'll never tell. Well at least for a little while!
 
 :-)
 
Thanks Aunt Pitty for a delightful swap!

  6. It's funny that Halloween is my favorite holiday to stitch for when I'm not even crazy about Halloween. :) But the patterns you find for Halloween are always so cute and fun to make! I absolutely love your blocks...all of them! blessings, marlene

  8. That must have been so much fun to get new blocks in the mail each day. I think you should use a Ghostly fabric to sash these blocks since ghosts weren't used except just a tiny bit in these blocks.
