We're at the end of the first week of October and the Something Wicked This Way Comes blog hop is well underway. Soma of Whims and Fancies had the brilliant idea of putting together a Halloween themed paper piecing blog hop and was kind enough to invite me to design a block. Thanks Soma!
When I think about Halloween, I think of the classic horror movies I grew up watching. No, not A Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween. Go back a little further to movies like Dracula, The Mummy and Bride of Frankenstein. I picked one of those characters, cartoon-ified her, and voilà:
This block is 10" x 10" finished. You can find the pattern here and the piecing instructions here. Did the hand-drafted and colored templates give away that this is the first time I've shared a pattern? If you haven't tried paper piecing or just need a refresher, Jennifer of Sewhooked has a wonderful tutorial.
The blog hop runs through the month of October, complete with weekly giveaways. Follow along for more wicked fun blocks!
