My Day on the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop

Welcome to The Queen's Palace and the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop.  


I'm so glad you stopped in for a spell.  There have been some pretty chilling things brewing in the cauldron.  Witchy Marian at Seams to Be Sew has been stirring the pot and came up with a fabulous line up of ghost, goblins, ghouls, and other witches, as well as a nice sponsorship from the Fat Quarter Shop.  Thanks you so much Witchy Marian and The Fat Quarter Shop.

I gave you a sneak peak at Miss Batty Lou Boo last week.  Well look how good she dresses up for the party.



Miss Batty Lou Boo is a "Stitch by Number" project.  You can read about it here.  





I changed her nose out from the project kit.  She originally had a wooden nose.  I thought she needed a purple nose so I dug through my button tin and found the perfect one.  I really like the white thread to attach the button eyes.  Gives Miss Batty Lou Boo some sparkle in her eyes. 


Then some creepy cobwebs and friendly spider quilting too.


Miss Batty Lou Boo would like for you to meet her special friend, Mr. Bones.  He didn't dress for the party, just tipping his hat to the lady witch.  





Mr. Bones likes cobwebs and spider quilting too.



Lots of mini Mr. Bones on the backing.




Mr. Bones' border was really easy to do.  It's a variation of the "five minute block".  

Now how about a treat (no tricks I promise).  You can win a project kit and make your very own Miss Batty Lou Boo.  Tammy at Happy Hollow Designs were generous enough to provide me with a giveaway.  All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me,  Do you have Halloween quilts and/or wall hangings? Then enter the rafflecopter drawing below.

Miss Batty Lou Boo and Mr. Bones would like to get together with all the other haunting goodness that's going on in the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop.  Why don't you join them at these sites today.

  1. I have been busy collecting some fabrics for Halloween projects but haven't finished any yet. Strange since Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.

  4. I love Miss Batty Lou Boo! She is quite a cutey, and Mr. Bones is rather dashing. I made my niece a sampler block Halloween quilt last year, but I haven't had time to make the black cat wall hanging for myself that I wanted to. Hopefully I will get to it soon.
