Peek A Who??!!

by | Oct 23, 2018 | 82 comments

Happy Tuesday!! I can’t believe this month is almost over! But before we dig out the turkey fryer, let’s share a little spooky-ooky fun on the Peek A Who Blog Hop hosted by Marian at Seams to be Sew

Please visit Marian’s site for a ***FREE*** pattern she is giving away each day! Today is a cute little monster – so hop on over and grab it, and visit her each day for a new one! She is also sponsoring the giveaway for a 50% off coupon for Calibre Arts cutting mats. So enter that drawing as well! I have my eye on that 18 x 18 rotating mat!! I’ve done some research on these mats and the one thing that REALLY stood out to me was the fact that they don’t have that “new mat” odor!! I’m sure you know what I mean, but for those of you who don’t, I’ll borrow a phrase from an old song, “You got your dead skunk in the middle of the road…stinkin’ to high heaven!!” A bit of trivia about that song – I always thought Arlo Guthrie (who did one of my other fave’s Alice’s Restaurant!!) did this song – but it was actually Loudon Wainwright III! They do sound a bit alike – at least to me. OK – we’ll quit chasing those oldie goldie squirrels and get back to our fun topic at hand! Darn squirrels!!! Some of them can be fun though!! LOL So if you’d like a chance to win a 50% off coupon for one of these non stinky mats, please head over to Marian’s blog post for Monday and register after you visit today’s bloggers!

This hop started Monday, the 22nd and will end on Friday the 26th. There are great prizes for which you can register each day from The Fat Quarter Shop, Timeless Treasures, and Calibre Art Mats! Here is the schedule for the week!

Now … to my project for Peek A Who! I don’t like scary, spooky so I decided to do a whimsical! When I was growing up in the country, houses were a little farther apart than in subdivisions. If we wanted to go trick-or-treating, my mom or aunt would drive us into town. But the most fun was when the “neighborhood” kids would have a hay ride. We’d all pile on the back of a truck, or tractor and trailer and just ride around. We would stop at a few houses and get some candy too. Sometimes we would have a wiener roast or some of the parents would make us goodies! Lots of fun and good memories!! So with those happy childhood times in mind, I decided on my project! Meet The Boo Crew!!

This is my drawing in EQ8. I found some fab-u-lous spider web fabric that was all glittery and decided to use it as the background and along with some scraps from my stash and a little extra fabric that just screamed, “pick me, pick me!” and I put together my flimsy, which really LOVED sitting on the windshield of my ‘stang!! I think they are ready for a F-A-S-T road trip!! LOL

And the crew enjoyed resting beneath the trees, as well! 

And here is my finished quilt! I’m not sure who was more afraid and surprised – the ghost, the owl, or the pumpkins!!! Meet Kasper the ghost, Batty, Frankie, Witchy and Twitchy, the pumpkins, and Spooky the owl!! They are enjoying a leisurely hayride on a Halloween night! And I am releasing this pattern today! It’s on sale until 10/29/18, and you can find it in my store here. Since the outer border was that beautiful purple spiderweb fabric, I just had to quilt it with hanging spiders!! This picture really doesn’t do it justice, but you get the idea! I quilted around the appliques so they would stand out more and quilted my favorite swirls and curls in the background fabric. The green “grass” was quilted with topsy turvy pumpkins!

    Hello, Brenda my new friend. What a wonderful wall hanging. I LOVE it. So whimsical and creative. The quilting has been done very well, that you thought about each section and enhanced it with some fun designs really makes it stand out also. Loved hearing about your childhood Halloween time also, Fall is a great time of year and my second favorite season of the year.. Winter being the first. 🙂 I’m and oddie… I love snow. Thanks so much for participating today and my sincerest apologies for not getting around to the blogs sooner this week. It’s really been I think my busiest week of the year thus far.
