Halloween? In March?

Instagram is a fun place to check out,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
there was a tutorial by studiojujuquilts and I had to try it.,,,
It is foundation piecing with muslin and a fun method.

At first I wanted to do a spring project but the Halloween theme is what I used and I love it!

I will use this as a wall hanging or mug rug.  There are a few photos on my instagram from start to end.

Be sure to check out the tutorial with photos (11 steps photos) by studiojujuquilts on instagram from two days ago.

Now I need to get back to my string bean challenge (Pat Sloan's pattern).

Microwave bowl holder tutorial

 I put a photo collage on instagram last evening of this project I finished this week.  A microwave bowl holder that I made and gave as a gift last evening.  These are fun to make and so easy.  I used Wrap-N-Zap and two Paris related fabrics each cut 11" square.  Quilt an X from corner to corner on each fabric with batting.  The blue shows the X quilted.

Darts are made after folding each side to the center.
The darts are 1" in and 2 1/4" down.
Pin right sides together and stitch around edge.
Leave about a 3" opening for turning.
Stitch around the edge on right sides....done!
