NewFO Challenge - Spooky Version
The scariest thing going on here is the prospect of 5 teenage girls watching horror movies into the wee hours. Drama Teen and her friends are having a sleep over here tonight. I'm sure it will be a chillin' time, though resting in peace is probably not a likely outcome.
Another scream worthy happening is that I have a NewFO to report on, the first since last March. The focus this year has been on getting UFOs off the list since it has grown to include twenty one projects. But I couldn't resist this one. Amanda over at Sea Breeze Quilts is teaching a class of new quilters and is sharing the sampler pattern, Chocolate Marshmallows, she's using for the class. Her suggested colors were brown and pink. The blocks are available for free download for 30 days after they are posted, after that they are available for purchase them from Amanda's Etsy store.
I've always wanted to make a brown and pink quilt. Plus the end of this year is all about using up the stash. There are a few well aged pinks and browns in the stash, so it just seemed to make sense to make this sampler. Four blocks have been posted so far, but I've only finished the first two.
Blocks 3 and 4 are cut out and are in various states of assembly. I'm off work today, so hopefully there will be some time in the sewing room this afternoon so I can finish those off.
Have a very happy Halloween. I'm linking up with the cat-alyzing hostess of the NewFO challenge, Cat Patches. Check out the terrifying beauty of all the new projects posted there.
