Enter Just Let Me Quilt If U Dare

Just Let Me Quilt is definitely ready for the Seams To Be Sew
Enter if U Dare Blog Hop!
I love, love, love Halloween!
Thanks, Marian, for hosting this blog hop!


I've been in a bit of a Dreaded Dresden mood lately so this project was perfect for me.
Creepy Bunny agreed with my choice of using the Dresden Neighborhood Quilt Pattern by Persimon Dreams that I'd seen on display at my favorite store, Quilted Works.
They'd added ghosts and Halloween fabrics...we loved it!

 Ghostly Dresden Neighborhood


It works great as a table topper or a wall hanging. 


This guy is scaring everyone in the neighborhood...he looks a bit hungry for body parts.


There's great giveaways going on, too!
Fat Quarter Shop and Timeless Treasures are so generous!



This is the Dresden tool I used...find it HERE.

I love this table topper, so cute. I came to your website from Seams to Be Sew's Blog Hop and I thought the patterns were supposed to be available for free....but the link above goes to Craftsy where the pattern costs $8.00. The only other link was to a retail shop. Am I missing a link somewhere? Or a code? Thank you.
