One Scary Pumpkin - Gremlins, Goblins, and Ghouls Oh My! Blog Hop

 Welcome
to the Sticks
and
 the second day of the
Gremlins, Goblins, and Ghouls Oh My! Blog Hop.

I've created One Scary Pumpkin


or 2 or 3...


Joan at MooseStash Quilting invited bloggers to dust off their brooms and come out and "fly"!
Or share some great Halloween-inspired projects.
Thanks, Joan, for inviting me!


I have way too many Halloween scraps - I tend to purchase more every year.

So, I broke out all the Halloween Fabrics and put together twenty 10" blocks
with random-sized scraps.



Then I stitched and flipped the four corners of the pumpkin, added some borders, and appliqued a stem and a leaf.

I had planned to make this quilt larger, but as usual, my time ran out.
I had made more blocks than I used in the quilt, so I cut some pumpkin sections out of the blocks.
I don't want any more orphan blocks than are necessary...


Now I have 2 spooky accent pumpkins to go with the quilt.


And a whole lot fewer Halloween fabric scraps.

Check out the others that are breaking out their brooms today:

Creatin’ in the Sticks (ME)


Joan has the rest of the schedule HERE
and
a Pinterest Page HERE.

We have 2 more blog hops to go this year:

I am hosting the Music Blog Hop next month


and Carol is hosting her annual
Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange in December.


Email Carol if you would like to join:


 About those blog hops Carol, Joan, and I host...we're changing it up a bit!
We've decided to call it Sew It - Show It.



We've been challenging our blogger friends each month and they never disappoint.
With a new name, Sew It-Show It, we'll be looking for twenty bloggers each month
who want to meet our challenges and share their creations. 

It won't be much different than our previous blog hops, but we've found that it's hard
for some people to visit so many blogs in one day. So...it will be just four days with five
bloggers each day. That means (sadly) that we won't have unlimited openings anymore.
But, we may have a few more surprises.
It all begins in January and I will be hosting the first Sew It-Show It in 2023.
If you are reading this, think of shades of blue for January.

I'll be posting about it after the
Gremlins, Goblins, and Ghouls Oh My! Blog Hop
 is over so watch for it here at Creatin' in the Sticks.


Did you know that Carol, Joan, and I host a block of the month every year on Facebook?
We are seriously working our fingers to the bone right now
and
we couldn't be more excited!!!!
We'd love to have you join us on our Cackling Stitches Facebook page!
The group shares Halloween Love all year long.

Whew!
That is a lot of information!


I'll just be on my way now...


have a Happy Halloween!
