I need to get my Mo Jo back!!


All right ladies.. 
I think this just might be the ticket to getting my Mo Jo back... 
It's time to start thinking about my 
3rd Annual Halloween Quilt Block Swap! 


My sweet internet friend Carmen has consented to me to using one of her awesome Grimmy Photos to use here on this post. PLEASE PLEASE do not save!!! This artist makes a living for her family, by making these wonderful handcrafted items. If your interested in her paintings or handcrafted dolls please click on the link and check out her web blog! Link under photo!
Here is Carmen's Spookyhollow shop on Etsy.
Please run by and check out her amazing art work... 
I Love her work..
I already own two of her items!!!
I hope to own more someday!!!

OH yes....where was I ... yes the Halloween Block Swap.
I am only going to allow 12 people in the swap this year. 
I am one of the 12. So that means there are 11 openings left.
First emailed first entered ;)
If your interested please send me an email.
Like always the blocks will be 12 1/2" X 12 1/2".
They can be any Halloween Theme that you like. 
There will be more details to come as far as shipping and dates due :)

Once you get a return Email
me stating your in the swap... 
Please use 100% quality cotton on your blocks.

Halloween Block swap rules

Now that I am getting some interest in this block swap here are the rules...
A. UNFINISHED 12 ½ inch blocks using 100 % quality Cotton.
B. Halloween colors up to you and each block can use different fabrics (same theme though).
C. You will need to pick a theme. Only one theme for the group. If I have too many of the same theme I will request you to choose another one ;) Or I will suggest one to you :) Please look to see what has already been spoken for in group and choose another fun theme.
D. I have chosen " Unk I will have to think on this one ;) ”
E. Exp: I will make 12 UNK finished blocks (same theme)... size 12 ½ inches using any Halloween fabrics I wish.
F. You  may use any technique you want, some ideas; pieced, paper piece, applique, embroidery, fusing, whatever makes you comfortable. You can also send embellishments for the finished block. Do not add these, you have to quilt your quilt.. so please put the embellishments in a zip lock baggie.
G. Some ideas; Ghosts, Witch Hats, Black Cats, Frankies, Spooky Houses, Witch shoes, monsters..... The list could go on and on.
H. SIGN your THEMED blocks on the FRONT any way you would like, I will have to write because I do not have a machine that can embroider.
Oz, Kansas
That’s, all you need to do any more is fine and up to you.

3. I am trying to stay away from traditional blocks, I want this to be an “out of your box” swap.
4. Blocks are DUE not mailed... by DUE Aug 20th, you only have about three months to work on your blocks. That way you will have time to put you quilt together prior to Halloween!
5. US residents can send their blocks to me any way they want but they MUST go back to you in your self address stamped Flat Rate Priority Envelope, it is 4.95. Your postal inspector will know what a Flat Rate Priority Envelope is, so no worries. No Bar Code for shipping.. this is not accepted at my post office .. it MUST be a stamp!
International participants, we can talk about shipping later. Most of my International participants pay via Pay Pal after I get the total due for return postage :)
In order to join YOU MUST E-mail me @
Please email to the above email account.

Please email the following:
Your full name
Blog link
Phone Number
And your Halloween theme (MUST be included) This is a first come first serve basis on the theme, so do not wait to long!!
I know this is a lot of information; I am always here to answer any questions.
I look forward to another wonderful fun Halloween Block swap!
