Wicked Blog Hop- Happy Halloween and giveaway



It's the last day!

 
I was hesitating to sign up for this blog hop, since I'm not into the scary part of halloween, but I'm a sucker for a good blog hop! so why not?
 
I desided to make a fall block instead of a scary "wicked" block, but I think it will still pass :-)
 
If you follow my blog you know that I love to play with EQ7....
I searched for pumpkin and a few blocks came up, one was this funny scrappy pumkin.
 
 
 
I colored it with a black background- I guess to make it more halloween-ish....

 
Now the block is 12" so when I printed this, it overlapped into another page (or rather 4) there was no way to MOVE it, I did move the large section down to just be on 2 pages and printed them like this.
 
 
 I did move the large section down to just be on 2 pages and printed them like this.
 
 
This is WHEN it's a good idea to preview before printing :-)

 
Here's the block all done
 
 
I had enough black fabric and lots of fiberfill, so I quickly made a pillow!

 
Here's Sonja leaning on it :-)

 
 Have fun hopping this last day!
And don't eat too much candy :-)

here's some FALL/ halloween things I've made in the past








Here's the rest of the schedule












I don't MUCH of a giveaway, but I was sorting my studio and I have some shelves with scrapbook paper (something I don't do anymore since quilting took over) but I found this funny little album I made a while back


 
It folds open can fit 4 large pictures and 12 small ones, great for pics of the halloween costumes!


 
Also, if you DON't have this sept/oct issue of McCall's quilting, I have a few issues left.
 
 
since my owl quilt is in it :-)
 
I will sign it for you too- if you want.....

 
All you have to do is comment on this post, if you just want ONE item or the other let me know, otherwise I will pick just one winner for both items.
I will pick a winner on the 7th (some time in the morning)
