Wow, do you believe it, we're at the end of Spooky Hallows. We end with "Spooky Spells". What you don't see is the word "Spells" that I will embroider on the book after quilting. Nothing new for this block, same techniques and same fabrics. I used cotton Lame for the candle stick using the same process as described in another post. Just click on the above picture to the PDF file.
I am also including the "Spiky" sashings 12" here and 16" here. These were designed in EQ7 so you could easily repeat them there. Because they are too long for the paper they come in two sheets. I recommend that you tape them together and then take them to a copy expert and have them duplicated onto 11" x 17" known as Tabloid paper. You will need 12 sashings of each size. Luckily I was able to make the PDF with multiple on each page.
Now you can see the difference in the quilt between using "Spooky Flowers" or "Spooky Magic". For some reason the quilt is much brighter with the stars versus the flowers. I can't figure out why. There is more yellow in the flower quilt so it should be brighter. Maybe it is the spikes the the stars.
I'm really going to miss coming here every two weeks to bring you another block. I also want to thank every one that has left comments to let me know the quilt is well liked and I'm not out here alone. LOL. I also want to thank everyone for letting me post my blocks. There really is a selfish reason I give my patterns away. It gives me a deadline that I have to meet. This quilt was designed three or four years ago and just sat there. In my defense my husband did become mortally ill and died during that time. I didn't work at all until two years after he died. I still miss him.
I have several other designs just sitting here, so I will be bringing them on as soon as I get them organized. I have a four block small wall hanging of Santa's called "Santa in the Pines", that I will be offering starting in November. It will be applique and some piecing. Here is a mug rug I made from one of the Santa's. So far the finished size is 22" x 22" but that may change. LOL
Then I have a floral quilt done a little differently from my other florals. It's more like the floral block featured in "Spooky Hallows". I think I'm going to try and bring that out in January. It's only on paper and I still need to pick out a color scheme for it. Let's hope for the best. So start looking for "Floral Dance" sometime in January (I hope).
Then starting sometime in July or August I am going to try and bring out a Christmas quilt that came to mind and I was working on "Spooky Hallows" it will be called "Snowy Christmas" featuring the same cat in white and some of my favorite Christmas decorations and toys, like tin soldiers and a Jack in the box. It will be a 9 block quilt and the same size as this one. I really can't wait to start this one. It will be so much fun and cute to boot.
Applique is best!!!!
