Witchie z sew far

Paper pieced Hogwarts Sue witchie block. She’s all hand pieced and is 9 inches square.  Still need to embroider a wee H on the light blue area for Hogwarts.  Cuteness! This block patter was had for free at: http://sewhooked.com/2013/09/11/a-free-sue-for-you/ Completed September 29th 2013

The paper pieced witches and wizard so far…thinking of snowballing the corners of each block with differing sized of squares in a freaky rainbow as I have a box of assorted squares left over from other projects…now that the design wall is back where it belongs the witches and friends will dangle there till I get them all completed.  I think this quilt will grow large enough for me to sleep under! September 29th 2013


a trendy witchie poo

Paper pieced Trendy Witch…Love the paisley top and the fabulous peacock mish mash hat! Only thing is when I was removing the paper I somehow put my finger right through the batik pant leg, hence the red patch.  I just hope when I send this out to eventually be quilted the quilter doesn’t get hung up on the patch…

This block is 9 inches square. Finally completed September 22nd 2013

Paper Pieced Witchie momma block.  Started the second set of Witch Bonnet Sue’s…I think this one turned out ok I’m just not a massive fan of reproduction fabrics… She’s all hand stitched and is a tidy 9 inches square. She was purchased with a set from: http://www.craftsy.com/user/470750/pattern-store?NAVIGATION_PAGE_CO… oh no…when I was capturing this address I noticed there is a new set of witchie friends…I have the feeling this quilt will end up being quite massive…. But I digress…(internal happy dance) she was completed September 15th 2013


With all the washing of baby stuff I found one blanket with a stain that Shamus has adopted…aw… September 15th2013

Mom’s Heart

M Is for the Many things she gave me,
O Means only that she’s growing Old.
T Is for the Tears she shed to save me,

embroidered witch block

Wicked cool embroidered witch craft block…isn’t she cute?!? I found her on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Richaway1230 and what was really nice is I could customize her hair color, dress and the green kitty (no schnauzer, oh well) I trimmed the block I received and added some fun borders from left over fabric from another quilt.  Block is now 12.5X12.5 and ready to join the others in the WBS Witch Bonnet Sue + quilt.  I think this quilt will be big enough to warm two! Boy to I want an embroidery machine!
