Happy Halloween!!


I hope everyone is ready for some spooky fun tonight.

Today is my day for the Wicked Blog Hop. 
I made a spider web quilt block and turned it into a mini quilt.

Which I plan to use as a mini table topper...


Or even a Jack-O-Lantern backdrop.



I had planned on photographing my whole process,
but the camera was quickly forgotten as I got engrossed in the project.
I did get remember to few shots that I can share.
I started out by sewing eight 1 inch strips together.
Then I used my Kaleidoscope ruler to cut out eight wedges.

I sewed the wedges together and added the black border.
Then I couched on some thick black thread on the seam lines.
The couched thread was originally the last step on my drawing,
but as I stared at it, I felt like it was missing something,
So I added some ghosts. 

Then I quilted it up and took it out into the night for its spooky photo shoot.

Make sure you check out all the other Wicked posts for the day

Wicked Wednesday,
October 31st
