Not Totally Witchy for the Witchy Stitchy Blog Hop

There are times when the best laid plans just don't fall into place and this would be one of them. My plan (as yet unrealized) was to create a table runner with my blocks. Indecision hit and I could not make a plan. Do I use the three blocks I have or add one more and make a square. So as I ponder this problem let me show you the blocks that are done.

The first is The Count or for some, Dracula. My number loving daughter would say The Count.



Next up is a Halloween Ghost. 


And then number three The Mummy 


When put end to end for a runner they might look like this. 


These delightful patterns were created by Rachel at One Last Stitch. She is on Facebook and Instagram. The patterns are foundation paper pieced and all finish at 10". She has only been designing for a short while but her style is unique and I must say I find it very appealing. 

So that's it from me this time. A partial fail but a partial win if you are working on your optimism. Piecefully, Joanne


Please take the time to visit these other bloggers on their special day and see how they interpret Witchy Stitchy.

  5. Cute mummy, I never would have thought to create one. It would be a cute runner to use under a bowl of candy to hand out to tricksters.

  13. These are great blocks no matter how they end up. The potential is amazing. Runner, topper, hanging, placemats, goodie bags and since you got the designers name out there all of us could potentially do the same. Win, win. Thanks for hopping

  19. Very nice work, and cute patterns. I think using the three blocks or adding a fourth would either look great.

  27. Very Cute blocks, with a 4th, you could put a blank quilted square in the middle so you have a place to put a centerpiece or a pot, etc... it would be fun to see these with a witch, or Frankie... or even a monster. :)

  28. A total win! I've never seen the blocks, or heard of the designer, so you've given me two new things. Thank you! I just love the mummy wrappings!
