New Block of the Month from Crabapple Hill

Ready for a new Halloween Block of the Month? Meg has you covered! Her descriptions are almost as clever as the blocks:

BLOCK #1

We’ve waited all year for the annual Witch’s Faire! As soon as you walk into the clearing, you’ll pass by the Pumpkin Scarecrow. Every year it seems larger! This pattern is the first of the Witch’s Faire Block of the Month Series and contains the assembly directions for the entire quilt along with the first embroidered block. Colored pencil tinting and very simple embroidery along with very easy quilt piecing make this an easy stitch! There are appliqued pennant banners at the top of the quilt, and you can use your favorite method to apply them. Have fun at the Faire!


Block #2:

Let me introduce you to Finoozala Groop! She was crowned the Queen of Halloween at this year’s Halloween Faire. It may have gone to her head a bit? Finoozala is the proud owner of Groop’s Spider Emporium in Hocuspocusville. If you need quality spiders, she has everything from single horrific ones… to the ever-popular bulk packages of 144 somewhat mediocre specimens. Infest your house in style at Groops!… YIKES, my worst nightmare!

Both should arrive any day, just in time for your new class line-up!
