A Little Hocus Pocus on a Friday Night!

I'm back to update my progress after last night's Sew-In!


Charm squares were picked out and organized for April's LePetite project.  I'm going with a Halloween theme, mixing Halloween Night and  Haunted Mansion.  I've got some new Alexander Henry Hocus Pocus fabric for the back.  Because some of the pieces in Brocante are nice sized squares, I thought it would be a great pattern for these Halloween fabrics.    



Binding was made for my Easter table runner.  I know, I'd better get going on that if I want it out for Easter!  I got the backing together too, by sewing some of the larger pieces of fabric leftover from the top.  I also found a scrap of batting that would work for this project.  I just hate to throw batting away.  Scraps work so well for quilting practice and smaller projects.





One more Blessings from the Hollow block finished!  I'm loving that purple!  That's all for the update.....enjoy the weekend! I hope you are making some sewing progress too.

Lovely block. I make cup mats from small bits of left over batting. They are a good way of using up little bits of leftovers too.

Cute Halloween fabrics! They do have great contrast and whimsy in those prints now. Lots of other goodness happening under your needle too :)
