Something Wicked this Way comes...

these are the blocks I had started about 10 years ago and thought they would be appropriate to share the hollow's eve...


This was a quilt that was featured in one of the Quilt that was featured in Quilters Newsletter on the back and it gave an address where to send for it..I loved the quilt and wanted to do Hawiian Applique.. these patterns made it fun and unique



the book is the title of the post and the designers are Carolyn Lynch and Pat Gallagher (1920-1998) I feel very fortunate to receive the works of these 2 ladies as this book was designed by the both of them and this is dedicated to Pat.

I need to finish this quilt now that I have pulled it out I wonder why I put it away and then remembered it is to try to pick the great fabrics to make it as fabulous as these ladies did...Again I thank the designers in our quilting world you make my life so very exciting with your imagination.
I think I have the stash to accomplish this and think this will be on my UFO list to finish..starting for my 2010 year..
I am almost finished my 3rd Love Letters Block and my 5th Aunt Millies Garden will post pics soon downloading the pics takes some time. I also have a few gifts that I need to show you. I am waiting for one more mini to arrive and then I will show you
Don't forget tomorrow night is the night for the big draw for Pumpkin Patch I hope everyone went and posted on her blog...
Happy Hollow's Eve bloggers!!

  1. It is very different...I love pink, so you should definitely finish this one. Is it machine pieced or what?

  2. Oh, I love your blocks. I remember seeing patterns for a project like this. Not sure if it was the same blocks. I wasn't doing much applique at the time so I never got the patterns.

  3. Those are fantastic! The ghosts stick out especially well. I might have to see if I can design a jack-o-lantern one

    Happy Hallowe'en!
