Free Spider Pattern (Paper Pieced)

This is the finished six-inch block that I was working on.

This is a fun block. Perfect for a Halloween project, like the center of a trick-or-treat bag, if you have children.  I am not sure what I will use mine for. 

You can get the pattern free from Paper Panache.  If I were to make another, I would use a solid color background so the legs would pop.

The Best Laid Plans go Astray

Yesterday I turned my dining room table into my sewing table so I could machine quilt a few items.

I never got around to machine quilting as I spent 5 hours in a marathon cooking session. After that I only had the energy to finish these 3 tiny pieces of a 6-inch block I recently found on the net.
 After working 9 hours today, I  had no energy to make the last two sections.  I hope to have this 6-inch block finished very soon so stay tuned to see what it is. I think you will like it!

Cat in Pumpkin 3-inch Block

I was in the mood to do a"fallish" project. I have tons of UFO's, so I did not want to start a big project.  Some place on my net travels, I came across a link for this tiny 3-inch foundation pieced block.  I thought it was cute and not too Halloweenish, so I printed it out.

It's a fast and easy block to piece and it's also a  free pattern from Carol Doak. .  . gotta love free! If you like it, you can  get here.

Once I had it made I had to come up with a way to use it in my fall decor.  I decided to add some burlap to all sides and wrap it around a candle!
It worked nicely on my Happy Fall Y'all accent table in my living room.
If you are feeling like you want to do a quick autumn project, you may enjoy this tiny little paper-pieced block.  If you decide to make it, I would love for you to post a link in the comments so I can see how you decided to use this cute block.

Another big thank you to Carol Doak for all the great foundation pieced patterns she makes for our pure enjoyment.
