Psst! Ready for some more Wicked fun? Come and sit for a spell...or two...
Welcome to my stop on the Wicked Blog Hop! The tour started last week and runs until tomorrow. So much Wicked fun!
If you are new to my blog, welcome! I have an eclectic assortment of finished quilts and projects on the go at any given time and I love to try new techniques. I also co-organize TGIFF!, a fun, touring finish linky party with Laura of Quokka Quilts. We are celebrating our second anniversary this month with OctoberQuest 2, where participants get a chance to win one of five gift certificates to Mad About Patchwork, Sew Sisters and Christa Quilts -- only two days left to link up and be eligible for the prizes!

It feels like I incorporated just about everything I've learned over the last few years - design, machine appliqué, free motion quilting, thread sketching, collage, etc. So very happy with Hexed!

Cheeky pumpkin finally gets some stitching to finish it off!
Oh, and of course, any self-respecting witch needs her trusty broom...
Hexed is finished using a non-mitred facing. And the back - a fun little Halloween print. :)
