'Tis the Season to be SPOOKY, part dos.

More pictures! I'm moving right along...of course, yesterday I had to take a break to go see Horrible Bosses with my roomate Lauren. Very, very funny movie, and I completely forgot how attractive Jason Bateman was until now. Woo!

Anyway, on to the pictures...
The graveyard is finished! My applique is definitely getting dang well should after all those curves and points. Good grief.

Can you see that purple? Yeah, me neither. So I decided to outline the lettering in the Hot Fix Ribbon. Not easy to do with a regular sized iron!

MUCH better. The purple pops much more in real life though.

Yeah, I always intended to applique it down. My thought was that with the ribbon plus the blanket stitch, it would look like stripes. Success, I feel!

Cute little candy corns. I decided that in all the pieced blocks, instead of doing solid black, I'd to a nice polka dot. Actually, this quilt is filled with polka dots. Whaaat? I like polka dots... <3

Ghosties! Their faces will be embroidered on later. Right now, they have such blank expressions! Oh yeah, gotta love the [candy]corny jokes! I'm on a roll! lol

Just a basic Card Trick....that took me 3 (non-consecutive) hours to do...some moron *ahem* kept cutting it wrong.

Right-o! So that's where I'm at there. Tonight I'm thinking I'll start on the houses and the flying geese. Should be cute! 
This one is for "Pearl's Potions" I'll probably re-name it. I think this one is my favorite so far!


  1. Oh, my god lauren!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is sooooooooooooooo AWESOOOOOOMEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ME WANTS!!!!!!!!!! SOOOOOOO BAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ok, done with the caplock and the excessive extra letters and exclamation points! But seriously I am so in love with this quilt!!! I can't wait till I can make something like that!
    But, ahem, I have to mention, ahem, that my birthday is very closely before halloween, ahem, clear throat, ahem, GIMME!!! (I guess I had to fit a little bit more cap lock in there after all)
    maybe when next halloween comes rolling around and I'm more organized and have built myself some more skills, I will make myself a similarly fabulous wall hanging. I am so proud of you!

  2. oh, and the ribbon does totally make it pop! looks nice and neon
