THE SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN THEME BLOCK SWAP 2009

Jane over at "Jane's Fabric and Quilts" is having a Halloween themed block swap. Screech on over there and spy out her rules. Come join the fun!! Below are my two blocks that I am doing. You have to make 12 Nine patch blocks 12 1/2 inches, and then 12 themed blocks.



Also if there are those of you out there that think you are not good enough and that is keeping you from doing this.....well....I just did a block swap and I felt I was not good enough, worried and fretted but...............when I got everyones block....do you think for one minute I went over it with a fine tooth comb? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! The blocks were awesome just the way they were....so...come join the fun.....(I am a fine one to tell you not to fret and worry because I still do but atleast I am not letting that stop me...so go on over).

Barb, I am so happy you join in with Jane's swap. I think it will be so much fun, but I will be gone for the summer and will not be able to join this time. But it sounds like she will be having more of these swaps.

Looks like fun but my time constraints won't allow me to take on a swap with this many blocks to be made! I like the blocks you have done so far. Pat (in soon-to-be-rainy-on-my-tri-NJ)

Well, you just got right down to work on that, didn't you?
I've entered two pincushion swaps, and I don't know what I am going to do.

Barb it looks very interesting.
I will go and check it out.
where are you getting the ideas for the other blocks?
My daughter just loves Halloween so this will be perfect for her.

Love your blocks Barb. I don't do swaps because I don't sew well on a sewing machine and it takes too long with hand piecing. I stick with comfort blocks or row robins.
