The Last Day Of "It's Cool To Be Square" Blog Hop

The last day of a blog hop is the best and the worst. The best because it's been a week of
inspiring projects and the worst because it's sad to see it end. Seeing so many square creations
has been amazing. Thank you to all who participated and to those of you who've visited!


Today is my day to share a project along with some other very cool quilters.

I've been moving (twice) over the last three months so sewing has been a bit of a challenge.
The house is full of boxes and since the majority of them say "sewing room" on them,
there's been a lot of digging and searching to find what I need. Hopefully, this next week
will improve the situation and there will be fewer boxes to climb over and dig through.

My "It's Cool To Be Square" project didn't get quilted, but it is flimsy that's ready to show. I 
used several of my applique designs to create a Halloween quilt that's full of squares in squares 
and it's square shaped. It finishes at 52" x 52" so that should meet the "cool square" criteria.


My new backyard has pine trees, palm trees, and even a wagon wheel that was left by
the previous owner. Not something I would have bought, but it's kind of fun.


There's lots of the usual Halloween boos in the quilt


A little potion, green worm, ghost, and black widows!


It felt really "cool to be square" making this Halloween quilt!


I hope you've been having a good time checking out all the square projects...I know I have!

Here's who's been hopping all week. They'd love a visit and a comment from you, I'm sure.

What a fun halloween quilt. Hope you soon "settle" in your new house. That wagon wheel is a nice place to take photos of your smaller quilts. I would love it.

You are a marvel - being in charge of this hop while doing the 'moving' thing. It's been such fun, Carol. I appreciate all the hard work you do to organize.

Your project is excellent - you absolutely do Halloween perfectly. The quilt fits this hop so well and looks wonderful in your new backyard. Thanks, Carol, for helping to lift spirits with the "Cool to be Square" hop.

You are the coolest quilter ever! Love those Halloween squares! Halloween is my favorite holiday to quilt, and you did an absolute stunning job with this creation! Will it be a pattern to buy? Hope you are enjoying your new house.

Considering all the moving you've done and the having to search for what you needed, much less finding the time, you made a great and very fun quilt! Thank you for inviting us to pop in for a visit.
