Halloween UFO

I started this UFO well before Halloween last year. I almost got it done in time for Halloween, but got stopped by the quilting, again (sigh). I tried to quilt it and it just didn't come out like I wanted. By then, Halloween was over and I lost interest. So, I'm going to try again to finish well before Halloween so I can hang it up in my office. I had a lot of fun finding the right fabric and doing the raw edge applique on this one. I changed the layout a little bit and decided that my blocks were going to be wonky and not all the same size. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I like the way it turned out.

This guy is pretty cool!

I used a combination of sewing and colored markers for the lines


Are you scared?

Yes, all those little bones are appliqued! Mwahhhhh!

This is my favorite. I love the expression on her face.

I want to make this into the shape of a (long) pumpkin, and still need to come up with a pumpkin stem for the top of it.

If you don't hear me talking about this over the next few months, please bug me about it! Sometimes I need that extra push. If anyone wants the free pattern, click here.

Take care,
