For Traveling Threads, Marilyn (aka Spiced Coffee) sent some really beautiful, soft colored fabric and hoped for a few birds. I went with something simple since the fabric seemed so calm, I didn't want anything too busy. I'm really happy with how the block turned out. It's 12.5" square.
For snip.sew.send., Zonnah (of Zonnah's Addictions) wanted us to do 7.5" curve/circle blocks. I've been loving the circles lately and was really inspired by this quilt. I pieced the circle and then used the fusible interfacing method to applique the circle. I figured that would be easier with all the seams around the edge. I also cut the back open to reduce the bulk and so I could re-press the seams.
and last, but certainly not least, I wrapped up my witches for Jane's Spooktacular Swap. It turns out that as much as I love the paper pieced witch pattern, I just can't make 12 of them. So, I made 4 of those, 4 witch faces and 4 sets of witch shoes. I think they're all fun in their own way, but I picked one of the sets of shoes to be returned to me. I can't wait to see what I end up with from the other ladies in my group!
