WIPs With Friends Hallowedding Progress

I am continuing progress on the Hallowedding quilt top.  
I lost one of the spider webs and finally found it this weekend.  
Then I thought I had lost the 2 witch's hats and the 2 candy corn blocks but 
they were actually hiding under the other spider web block.  
(Of course I discovered this after I made new ones, LOL.)

I had made a few extra coffin blocks and was lamenting this when another friend suggested that I use them in my filler block locations.  
BRILLIANT (this is why she is by BFF).  
I hand appliqued 4 individual coffin blocks and trimmed them to fit in the places that I needed the filler blocks. 


 Remember that since the ring was 6" larger, I had to find a way to enlarge the quilt top to make it fit.  I dug out the graph paper and started working. 
 As it turns out there was only one partial seam in the quilt top piecing. 
 How lucky was that?  


The first section I worked on was this one.  See the four filler blocks? 
 I was happy to use that skeleton hand fabric forming hearts. 
 It came from my friend.


I think this one with the cat, fish and boy (holding up the peacock) is my favorite.  
I was totally going for this look too.  So cool!


I wanted to find a way to use Sebastian in the quilt wherever I could and this large pink cat was purrrrfect!


A different friend also send a Ghastly peacock so I had to use him.  
See that pumpkin fabric?  I was dying to find a way to include that in this quilt.


I was under the mistaken idea that I needed to make more candy corns so made this one with the cat.
Turns out the others were hiding under that blue web!  
(They will be on the back)


Another "must use" fabric was this haunted forest.


Last adorable filler I will share is Sebastian on the picture frame.  
These were all so perfect for my quilt.


So this is my progress after the weekend.
