Wicked !



I love Halloween!! 

I have a TON of Halloween projects I’ve made over the years!!

This year, I created a couple of smaller projects and started a bigger project!!

First up….a purse for the holidays using a Halloween charm pack!!!






Next, some log cabin, Halloween coasters!!!







Lastly….the blocks I put together for ‘Witches in Stitches Bootique’ Quilt pattern by Ronene Wilkinson at Oh My Bloomin' Threads.









The blocks are done….now I’m in for a long winter of stitching up the ‘bootique’ blocks!




Oh what fun!!



I hope to share this finished project with you in the Spring!


And let's not forget a big thank you to our wicked hostess Wendy of Why Not Quilt and to the awesomely wicked Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt for all their work in making this blog hop possible!
