Halloween Hopping Blog Hop

October 20, 2020


       Halloween, for some, is their favorite time of the year rather than Christmas.

Although Christmas is my favorite time of the year, I went Halloween crazy designing a series of quilt kits of fang-tastic: ghoulishly delightful: hair-raising: absolutely bone-chilling: conjouring: and howling Halloween’s favorite characters for you to enjoy creating & embellishing.   

The colors for this blog hop was to include purple.  So, My featured pattern is Witch’s Brew.  it’s a cute design showing what can happen when a witch gets too close to her kettle.   The laser precut appliques made it super easy to put this together. 


I wanted to do a little more embellishing, but i was so excited to get it done, i didn't get to it.  Besides, it leaves plenty of opportunity for you to add your own touches.

The photo below shows some of what i did with thread, but you can use your imagination to make her really pop.  On the orange tonal fabric i used gold thread to give it more depth.  On the logs i used contrasting brown thread to illustrate the rings on the wooden logs.  There could probably have been a lot more thread painting on the fire, but this was my first attempt, and i didn't want to use the seam ripper.

This photo shows the goo bubbling over the kettle.  perhaps sequins or even circles created in contrasting thread spilling over would be cute, or even some bubbles rising from the top.   

Maybe hanging spider buttons or other halloween decorative items off the tips of her boots would have a scary affect.   There are loads of possiblities.  I would love to see photos of how you would make this a real eye popper.  The quilting was a random attempt at free motion, I'm still in the learning stage.

Just for stopping by and reading my blog, I have added a complimentary pattern template which you can find HERE Pattern will be available until the end of October, 2020.  After that you will be able to purchase one.
