Enter If U Dare Blog Hop

My favorite time of the year, and no one 
makes me happier than Marian when she hosts her Halloween blog hops.
I've been dreaming of this all year long!
While life has been extra crazy this year for me...
I was able to finish a "PIGS" for this hop
(projects in grocery sack)

This is "Haunted Howlings" by Marjorie Peck at Pecks Pieces.
This has been pieced since the 2014 when she released the pattern
but never managed to get quilted.
It doesn't look like she's got it online anymore
but you can read more on it 
I got a chance to play around with the quilting on this one.
What a fun way to get a little practice in.
The ghosts are made of organza. 
Marjorie has great info on her blog, about working with it.

Now Marian threw in a little twist this year, for us participating...
She gave us a choice of couple of patterns she designed 
and our challenge was to do something with them...
I picked the bat
Did he make into the cutest lap quilt?
I used my Accuquilt GO cutter and ric-rac die on this.
I have to tell you...I absolutely "LOVE" that ric-rac die.
So many things you can do with it!
If you "spied" this adorable witch hat...
It's another of Marian's wonderful designs.
I just had to add it into my quilt.
She's done more Halloween Sayings too.
Check them out 
They are all so stinkin' cute!
In fact so much so, that I had to do more...
I've printed out the last couple of blocks, but didn't get them done in time.
Sorry, it was that whole wedding thing...LOL!!!!
I choose to use the QAYG method here.
The block pattern I used is from "Kittens Halloween Party".
You can read up more on that, on my Oct 11th post.
I did resize the appliques to fit on a smaller block, 
and I am loving how it's turning out.
Thanks Marian a hauntingly delightful, set of designs.
A big thanks also goes out to "Timeless Treasurers" for todays give-away.
SEW...
I "Entered and I Dared"
The kid in me lives on.
We can thank Ms. Marian for another great blog hop.
Can you give us a hint on next years theme?
Cause I'm dreaming of a purple and orange, Halloween!
hahahahah

til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'

  21. That lady at Peck's Place is so talented with her patterns. I've always adored them. I love how you did the pattern tho, the various colors just really work great together, adding the brown/tan just really enhances it, I'd never have thought to do that. Of course working with organza is never easy, it's so flimsy and slippery, but you've done her technique justice.

    I love how cute my patterns turned out also, adding both blocks and that rickrack is way cool. I think I'd actually buy the Accuquilt for that alone. :)

    And... the Halloween Sayings, love the surrounding blocks, they highlight each "sayings" block so nicely. All of these are just fabulous. So glad you hopped along with us...
