It's A "Halloween Hoppin" Blog Hop Day

With Marian hosting the "Halloween Hoppin" blog hop, she was nice enough to let me slip in at the last minute to share a few Halloween projects I've made this year. Some of them are free, too! Thanks, Marian!

You may not know this but I love Halloween...a lot! Some times things about Halloween scare me, but I still love it! A long, long, long time ago Frank used to scare me, but now I know he's just a big loveable guy.

I even share a Facebook group with another Halloween crazy lady, Joan, from Moosestash Quilting. The group is called "Cackling Stitches" and we have so much fun with all the people who are nuts about Halloween, too. We'd love to have you join us!

This is the newest project I made for Wicked Wednesday at Cackling Stitches. It's a mini quilt, "Halloween Treats" that measures 14" x 14" and it's free! You can find the pattern HERE.

I've been in a bit of a gnome mood lately, so "Celebrating Halloween" came to life. You can find this in my Etsy store HERE.

These applique designs were made for my Halloween costume project at ThermOWeb. They can be made using a no-sew iron-on or my favorite HeatnBond Lite applique adhesive. A couple of the Monkey Boys really got into the spirit of being a pirate! You can find these free applique designs HERE.

This guy definitely needs his eyepatch, but he's got the pirate leer and squint going on.

My "Trick or Treat" quilt became a sew along on Cackling Stitches. It was so fun to see all the quilts made from this. Joan had a quilt retreat where they sewed this...I loved seeing all the pictures! She's got it on her blog during this hop so check Moosestash Quilting.

This was another Halloween project for ThermOWeb using Riley Blake Designs "Scaredy Cat" fabric. It was Creepy Bunny approved just in case you're wondering. You can find this free pattern HERE.

Early this year I designed "Bellagosa's Boutique. You can find it in my Etsy store HERE.
