Hocuspocusville is done. I could not be happier with how this all came together. Even though I got off to a horrible start, it was worth all the boil boil toil and trouble.
The inner 9 patches finish at 1 1/2" square, the outer 9 patches finish at 2 1/4" square.
I think the pieced blocks do their job, they direct your eyes to the stitched blocks.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number Eleventy-Three or 113.
The pattern is Hocuspocusville by Crabapple Hill.
The fabric is Black Magic and Candy Corn by Renee Nanneman for Andover Fabrics.
This quilt finished at 56" x 56".
It has approximately 1,164 pieces.
Can you believe I started with this?
My Hocuspocusville stitched blocks are half the size of the stitched blocks in the pattern, but I love their size.
As a point of reference, the Crabapple Hill pattern finishes at 68" x 68".
I can hardly wait to get this one quilted, I have no idea how these stitched blocks should be quilted, do you quilt around the embroidery or through it? I need to find out. It would be wonderful to have this quilted and out the month October. Even without the quilting, this is already one of my all time favorite quilts.
