Happy Friday people! A brief note for all my Frugal Friday peeps, I posted a day early this week due to my Halloween block. Make sure you check out yesterday’s Frugal Friday post for some great deals on bits & pieces of fabric!
Today is my day to present a paper pieced Halloween block for the Halloween Paper Pieced 2012 Blog Hop hosted by Soma at Whims & Fancies!
A big warm welcome to any new folks stopping by for the first time. Make sure you check out my post from Wednesday where I displayed a mosaic of my favorite quilts. That was also my day on the Glorious Autumn Block Party and I made a fun little block. There’s a giveaway too!
And now, without further ado, here is my Halloween paper pieced block, My Little Monster.
I’ve created a PDF file of the My Little Monster Pattern. Please note that I did not explain paper piecing. The pattern assumes you already have the basic skills needed to paper piece.
I have to say this block was a huge challenge for me. I’ve never designed a paper pieced block and this was no easy task. I cannot even tell you how many blocks were scrapped because I could not get them to work. In fact, I almost emailed Soma and backed out. But, my stubbornness prevailed and after some tears of stress I regrouped and tried again. My Little Monster was born.
I hope you all enjoy him as much as I do. Let’s take a closer look at his antennae.
Hope you all enjoyed My Little Monster. I’m just super excited I was able to complete this task!
I hope you all enjoyed My Little Monster!
