She has a great tutorial for them on her blog and asked for autumn colors on neutral backgrounds, suggesting the scrappier the better.
My scrap bin has grown a lot recently and includes fabrics left over from my own projects, as well as scraps I received from swaps with quilty pals and purchased from various brick and mortar and online quilt shops.
It was fun being able to pull exclusively from my scrap bin and these blocks were a blast to make. I'll probably do a wrap-up post for the bee once I've received all my blocks. It takes a minute for things to travel from Australia, hence the name Far Flung Bee!
Now back to Halloween, have you seen the sale section over at fat quarter shop?! They've got tons of Halloween prints 50% off and I just couldn't resist. I don't usually do novelty prints but I love a good deal and now's the time!
I picked up this fat quarter bundle and a few other basic blender prints from Halloween lines that aren't Halloween specific and can be used in other projects too. I think it's safe to say I'll be making a spooky quilt for next year :D
And here's a look at our jack-o-lanterns, mine is on the right, Jon's is on the left. Don't they look so happy together?! He had hoped his would look more menacing but it just can't help looking smitten.
I've got candy lined up for the trick-or-treaters and a race horse costume ready for the dog. Can't wait!
What are your plans?
