Halloween Paper Pieced 2012 Blog Hop

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!

  1. Oh my gosh Vicki! That little guy is just adorable. So cute.

    Wouldn’t he be super cute on the front of a little Trick or Treat bag or even stitched onto a toddler/baby’s Tshirt?

  2. Yay!!! I received my fabulous little charm pack from you today!!! It is wonderful! I have the perfect project to use it for… Thanks for the fab block pattern(again LOL!), and the wonderful prize!!! Hugs, hoots, and hollers, Ruthiequilts
