Hallowe'en 1904 Update . . . . .

So here's my latest progress on Hallowe'en 1904 by Blackbird Designs.

For the hsts on this block I went with the same orange fabric and same background fabric for all the pieces.



For the hsts on this block I went  scrappy oranges and background fabrics. 




For this block I went with the same black and background fabric for the top and bottom and and for the sides the same black and background fabric, but fabric different from the top and bottom.



This is my favorite block so far, the pattern called for all orange hsts but I added a few blacks ones, for a combination of two different oranges, one black, and three different background fabrics.



I've also made all the other star blocks except one.  The remaining blocks are going to be scrappy hsts so I need to make a bunch of them before I can move on.

A few folks commented last week that they didn't like that moon and star block, and I have to agree, it's not really one of my favorites either, but I'm leaving it in for now to see if I warm up to it.  Nicole isn't using that block in her version, she's going with all pumpkins.



I'm still enjoying this project and it seems to be going super fast!

  2. I have to admit, I kind of chuckled over the "moon" block--if I was dyslexic it would have reminded me of the symbol seen in the Ottoman Empire:-D But the quilt is so whimsical that it makes sense. I agree with Diana...I need to quit my job and get to the quilts piled up on my sewing table, XOXO

    Nice blocks. Okay, seriously wonderful blocks. I'm with everybody else - that moon and stars is a little bit odd-looking. It's like a big backwards "C". But I love the cat. So will you hurry up and finish? ;)

  9. I'm not terribly fond of the shape of the moon...looks like a backwards 'C' (or if you flipped it the other way, it would like a grade C+), and with the star it looks like an emblem on a flag. If the moon was shaped more like the one on the black cat block I would like it so much better!

  12. This is going to be the cutest Halloween quilt ever and I think the moon block just needs to be turned around to fit in with the others IMHO. Just super!

  14. FABULOUS!!! I've always thought the moon looked odd, and when I do it, I was going to redraw it and overlap the star. Love also the white pumpkin!!!!!
