Halloween blog hop

Hi and welcome to day 15 of whims and fancies Halloween blog.
For all the new people I’m happy to meet you and to the old readers welcome back and sorry for the quiet that has been around for a while. I’ve been moving out of my parent’s place, got a full time job (I’ve not had a full time job for almost 10 yrs) and been waiting for over a month to get my internet connected (still not connected btw).

Anyways, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays even if it isn’t really celebrated here in Iceland.
I have always loved scary stories and movies 🙂 It should therefor not be a surprise that my block is quite a bit darker than most of the others in the blog hop.

The Rising

I call this The Rising and like the others in the blog hop its 10″x10″

I also made a border to go with it which I call flying candy corn border it’s a variation on the flying geese 🙂 each part of them are 1″x5″ and sewing 2 together makes a border around one 10″ block (with added cornerstones)

Here is how it would look finished using EQ7 since I haven’t had the time or energy to get it finished in time.

I hope you like my block and do browse my patterns pages you might find something fun to make 🙂

see you soon and Happy crafting

    Oh my gosh! This is awesome. Thank you. I will admit that I’ve been following this blog hop but have never done any paper piecing yet. This block might have enticed me to give it a shot in the next few weeks. I LOVE IT! And the border is so awesome too. (I would have said how cool it was, but that may have dated me a bit lol)

    GOOD LUCK with the job.
