I would like to thank the Mad Madam Samm and Wicked Wendy for being the inspiration and cheerleaders for this hop. Please be sure to visit these other bloggers whom I share this Wicked Day with:
I don't do a lot of decorating for Halloween or have a lot of Halloween fabrics, but do enjoy having a little fun with it.
I've had this FQ in my stash for some time - not even sure how I acquired it. The Witches are so fun, but rather a large size and not a lot of room to really play with them without chopping someone. So I chopped!!
I used my TUTORIAL FOUND HERE to make a wicked tissue cover. I had to have one with a black cat - I have a black cat don't you?
And I had to include those wickedly fun shoes. No, I don't have any like those, but I think maybe at some point I had leggings similar to those - now that is scarey.
I had to save one of these wicked witches to make a new mini for my stand. A simple large scrappy 4-patch background and some extras cut and fused. Quilt a spider web and add some crows and sunflowers for borders, and my favorite black with tiny orange dots for binding.
We need some monsters in the mix of wickedness. I used this TUTORIAL from United Notions. Just some bright and fun colors/fabrics for a bit of play.
I think I'll tuck them up amoungst the flower beds to take care of any Tricksters!
What if we play with that pattern and replace the zipper with some toothy
We can have a wicked
cover for that empty
coffee can to use for holding those goodies
when all those treaters come to the door.
And you know it wouldn't be wicked with out some Ghastlies from Alexander Henry. I have some left from previous years, and got to love that new Christmas one. Some Little Black Dress (Basic Grey) - just perfect with those Ghastly Ladies, some of Tula Pink's NightShade left. And stir it together with some mauve/pink stripe by Elm Creek Quilts.
Now you knew I had to make a quilt - you just knew. Some left over mottled black (Wilmington Prints) for a border and that 'Nettie's Dot' (Timeless Treasures) was perfect for the back.
I just could not cut up this Christmas print. The characters are large (17.5" for one of the figure images), but it all just blends into one another so you have to leave it be.
But that eclectic mix of fabrics - chopped, diced, shuffled - just FUN!!
Just a wickedly fun quilt to have out from October right thru the Christmas season.
Thank you for stopping by - glad you were a treater and not a trickster. My treat to you is a give away:
It's too close to Halloween for spooky fabric and if you are like me, tired of Christmas fabrics (oh my) so I chose a jelly roll of Midnight Blues by Windham Fabrics. Hey, the Midnight, night blues, that moon, it fits the mood. I will ship international, just leave a comment (be sure I have a way of contacting you). Comments open until midnight (EST)- the witching hour - Oct 31st and winner announced Nov 1st.
