Today, I'm Wicked... ;o)





Welcome! I hope you've been having a wicked good time visiting all the stops on the hop.  I love seeing what everyone has been sewing!
 
  Thanks so much to our fabulous hostess, Wendy  and to Madame Samm for all their hard work in making this fun hop possible.
 
I'm going to start with the last minute block I stitched for this hop... I saw this cute barn bat block on Elizabeth's blog and was inspired.  She gives a wonderful tutorial ... however my quick sketch and brief directions on a scrap of paper, led me astray from her careful instructions and so my block  looks quite unlike hers.  Whoops.    For what it's worth, here's my slightly "batty" version. ;o)
 
My next block is one I'm sure you'll recognize... 
 
 
 as the Spiderweb Block! I thought it would be wickedly fun to use the spiderweb printed fabric that I bought years ago for the background surrounding the pieced webs.  Every year, about this time, I would pull that fabric out and think, "I should make something with this..." but it would always be put back into the stash, uncut.  This year, inspiration struck and I feel like I found the perfect use for the spider fabric!
 Four blocks would make a  wicked quilted table mat for our kitchen....
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting!  Hopefully, you'll  be able to get your eyes uncrossed after looking at those spider blocks ;o)... to be able to visit these lovely ladies and their Wicked creations...
