Here are the finished blocks from the 2011 Aunt Pitty Pat's Halloween Block swap..
didn't they turn out awesome!!
LOL I need to thank Creative Down for the photo.. since I swiped it from her blog :) 
This year I tried a new technique.. I did some free motion stitching on my Witches Cauldron. I had to back the block with stabilizer to keep the material from puckering, when I stitched the bubbles. 
I also used variegated thread to make the bubbles...
I have to tell you ..... 
I am still laughing at my lousy bubbles .. 
I can't draw a straight line.. nor can I sew a circle :)
The girls really out did their-selves this year... They used paper piecing, applique, patch work hand-stitching, creative embellishments.. free motion stitching...and the list goes on and on.
The photo really doesn't do these very fun blocks justice... 
Your blocks are FANTASTIC Ladies..
Thank you again for playing along. I hope you think the extra wait time was worth it ;)
