A Wicked Welcome

Welcome to my post for the Wicked Blog Hop, hosted by the lovely Wendy of Why Knot Kwilt in conjunction with Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt.  A big hug to both ladies for the wonderful idea and for letting me join in on the fun! 

 
Please hop on your virtual broom and go visit the other Wicked bloggers today too!  I'm in such good company today and you'll find lots of wicked goodies here!

So how wicked was I feeling?  If you say "wicked," I think "witch" and I just knew I had a witch pattern in my library somewhere.  Spellbinding Quilts by Maaike Bakker has some super cute patterns, including wizards and princesses, gryphons, dragons and you guessed it ... a witch!


Isn't she cute, perched on her broom?  I didn't want to leave her unfinished so I added a little saying I read on some Halloween wall art the other day and turned the block into a wall hanging.


The meandering is not quite tidy but my free motion quilting is getting there.  I also quilted little spiderwebs into the top corners of the embroidered part.  Such fun!


Thanks for stopping by today, and be sure to visit the other quilters for lots more wickedness!

  37. I love your witch. I wish I could say my free-motion quilting is improving. Frankly, I prefer to hand quilt, so that is probably why I don't try more, but I did machine quilt a block last night that I had made for the Leafs Me Happy hop. It wasn't great, but I am not embarrassed to hang it up.

  38. OMWicked Ways, your witch block is adorable. And your quilting is very nice, you will always get better, even if you are the best, so much to learn as we go along. I also love that ?doily? with the spider. Can you get a better picture of it and share with me? Thanks, :)
