My incredibly talented, blogless friend Rachael is crazy for Halloween (check out some of her great crusties in this post) not that that's the only holiday she's made fun little quilts for (here and here). She sent me this fabulous name block:
This little free-pieced witch finished at 6" high. wow, the details:
I've actually been doing some sewing myself. Zipped out some Wonky Houses:
The first few are always so straight - it takes a while to get back into the rhythm of it and make them looser and crazier.
I suspect I'll be making even more. I'm teaching a class on the houses in April, so I need some samples to take with me. I only have one house quilt here with me and right now it's hanging up at the shop, the JaMPatch in Stuart. You can read a bit more about that here. My sweet husband just threw a few more house quilts in the mail for me so fingers crossed they get here before the class.
I hope some of you live close enough that you can come take the class. It should be a lot of fun and we're having it over two days so that we can throw a few free-pieced letters in as well.
We figured the houses would be a good place to start teaching because of the great article in Quiltmaker. By the way, that issue of the magazine is available for purchase from the publisher if you can't find it at your local quiltshop or bookstore.
I've got to get running, so ya'll take care.
