Trick or Treat! My Day on the Wicked Blog Hop!

Hello there, everyone! I can't believe it's almost Halloween! Welcome to the Wicked Blog Hop! (No, not wicked as in "evil", but the more contemporary meaning - awesome, great, WOW!) I hope you finish the hop feeling inspired! (By the way, that is NOT me above! I am not that tired yet!)
My little block turned out to be a bigger project than I first planned. 
I started out with just four half-square triangle blocks, each 12 1/2" square. I made each in orange and gray.
    I sewed the four blocks together......
 and then the fun began! I drew off a witch face and feet and made an applique of them. I placed the face "peeking" over the center of one square, and the feet poking out from the center of the opposite square. (I think I might make a quilt of squares of Halloween fabrics with the little witch at the top right hand corner, peeking over the edge. I think that would be funny! Maybe by next Halloween I'll have it to show you!)
Before embroidering features....
...or sewing down.
After embroidery. (and a little acrylic paint on her nails!)

 I ended up adding the appliqued Trick or Treat words and adding borders to the four squares. I then quilted and bound it. It's big enough for cuddling a child in or for draping over the Halloween party table (or how about the Breakfast table?).
(By popular demand, I am putting together kits for this little lap quilt/tablecloth. It is 43" x 43". The kit will have very similar, but different fabrics and will include fabrics for the top only. $49.Hair and pattern  IS included. If you want to pre-order one, please contact me HERE )
Would you like a little giveaway? Just comment below for one chance to win and follow on my sidebar for another (or let me know you already follow). I'll choose a winner this week and announce it on Monday, October 29. What will you win? I'll send you a free PDF pattern of your choice from my Craftsy store.

Thank you to Mdm. Samm and Wendy for hosting and cheering us on! You can go to Wendy's blog for a master list of blogs on the hop. Be sure and visit these other blogs today to see what they have to offer. You won't be disappointed!
 Terrifying Tuesday,
23rd of October
