Wicked Hop


                               

For this hop I specifically made 2 projects. I am adding several other wicked items I made for this Halloween season.  But first I want to Thank both Mdm. Samm and Wendy for organizing and cheering us along the way. Without your support we just wouldn't be having this Ghoulishly  fun event.

I have 2 friends with September birthdays so what better way to participate in this hop then by making them Wicked birthday presents.  Since they don't know each other and live 1500 miles apart I felt comfortable making them both the same gift.

                                          Not 1

                                         Not 2


                                          But 3, nesting baskets



                                         With a cool polka dot lining.



These wonderful Nesting Bowls are from the pattern by  Nova at www.acuppaandacatchup.com        

While I know I have made similar baskets without patterns in the past. The joy of using this pattern was that all of the math was clearly done for me. She offers measurements for  a 4,5,6,7,8 and 9  inch versions. As well as measurements and directions  if you wanted to add a detailed band in the middle or how to calculate different sizes.  I choose to make the 5,6 and 7 inch plain versions.



Don't they nest well together. I found both of these great seasonal fabrics at Joanns.

Next up I saw this cute tutorial for a set of quickie coasters by Beth over at Love Laugh Quilt.  While they are great on their own, I needed to make them Wicked, so I added some Bats and Black Cats.

Now onto my latest interest, Post Cards.  It started with Michelle's wool postcard patterns that I fell in love with  over at Raspberry Rabbits    http://theraspberryrabbits.blogspot.com/   So far I have finished 2 of them.  There are 5 Halloween patterns in the set.  I'll get to the others soon.






Then I participated in a Post Card swap for the Fall Season with Sheila over at http://sheilasquiltworld.blogspot.com/
For that swap I shrank down and slightly modified the latest FFF pattern by Kaaren Johnston at Painted Quilt.  I love how it turned out in it's 4 x 6 version.




Well that's it for me this go around.  I hope you have been visiting the other participants this week as well as the ladies I am hopping with today.  

Oh, I almost forgot.....I am going to have a give away of the set of Wicked Coasters.  If you are interested in a chance to win, just make a note in the comment. I'll send them anywhere.

Edit:
So I put this post to bed on Sunday evening.  Scheduled it for today, done.  Not so fast.  On Monday  my girl friend and I went looking for some smallish Halloween Candy sacks. She wasn’t fussy, they will be a token goodie bag for her collage age son and his roommates that she would fill with candy.  Couldn’t find anything in the size she was looking for so I volunteered to use some of my Halloween stash to make them.  Just your basically wicked Trick or Treat Sack.



                                                     These little guys measure in at 7x7x2



                                                         I made 4,  I’m really done this time.

                                        Please stop in and visit all of the other participants for today.

  10. All your wicked creations are wonderful. They just coming and coming and amazing and amazing me. I adore them all. Of course, I have a thing for polka dots, so I was in awe of the nested baskets from the beginning. The coasters literally scream Halloween. What a terrific idea! Postcards weren't even in my thought process until I saw them here - great, great idea. I need to get some cards in the mail to some grandboys (thanks for the hint). I tend to find a pattern and go with it and don't think about resizing one. Thanks for reminding me that's a great possibility for something I like. You are a sweetie to make the treat bags for your friend. We're never too old for treats. Thanks for participating and being a great inspiration.
