It's Wicked Wednesday...

and it is my day to be wicked.
A big thank you to our wicked hostess Wendy of Why Not Quilt  
and to the wicked Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt 
for all their hard work organizing this WICKED blog hop!

The first project is a Halloween bag made with outdoor screening.
I hand embroidered the pumpkins with black Aurifil 12 wt embroidery cotton.
The pattern is from Bird Brain Design - Trick or Treat Pumpkins
The other design on the pattern is sEw dang cute and I will be making it too...

The block finishes at 12" x 12". 
 The paper pieced pumpkin block was one I found in an 
old Fons and Porter's magazine
from September/October 2004, the designer is Carol Morrissey.
It is a 10.5" x 10.5" block.
I just may have to make 8 more jacks blocks,
 paper piece some candy corn blocks,
and add some sashing, oh yes!!!  I can do this...for next Halloween!
I luv this quilt...it's a good paper piecing project.
Don't you luv it too??
The last block is from a "Oh My Bloomin' Threads!" pattern 
the pattern is called Park Your Broom
The hand embroidered blocks measure 10.5" x 10.5",
I added some paper piecing  rectangles to the bottom...
...sashed it with Kona black then bound with the swirl fabric.
It compliments my mini table topper I stitched last year called Eeek....
...I think I will hang them side by side on the wall.
Please visit the other wicked blogs as they have
 some wicked blocks and wicked projects to share too!

love your pumpkims

Karen said...

Wonderful as always, Pauline! The pumpkin stitchery is perfect as a panel for the bag. Love it. I think I need to master the art of paper piecing because that pumpkin looks great, too.
Great idea to match up this year's stitchery wit the one from last year. Is this going to become an annual occurrence? Just imagine how many cute little hangings you will accumulate.
A fantastic display of Wickedness!

Sewgirl said...

I love your little quilts, and the bigger pumpkin one is great. That must have taken some time! I love embroidery. It's great for travel, which I find myself doing here from time to time. If I won, I think I would like the Park Your Broom pattern.
