WIPs With Friends

I did manage to force myself to sew over the holiday though.  
I am being very serious.  
Sewing seems like a chore at the moment. 
 I want this Hallowedding quilt finished, but have been DREADING the rest of the blocks. 
 Weird, huh?  
So I finally decided that I needed to see what the placement of the original blocks were
 and see how mine was really progressing. 
 That is the only way I could assess what I have left to make.
  Nothing like a little visualization to get me moving forward!

I wrote down the blocks I still needed to make and realized that some of the additional blocks that I had made fit in in place of some that the original quilt had!  

 I still needed to make one more set of eyes.

And one bat

One set of 2 short potion bottles

One set of tall potion bottles

And holy cheese whiz Batman, this is what my background fabric for my first (of 2) spider webs looked like as I was cutting it out.

I laid it out to make sure everything went in the same direction.

Then I made my first spider web block!  
Sewing the curves was not difficult at all.
  Parts of the original pattern left a few things out that I had to figure out, 
but three hours later it was finished.

I have one more spider web left to make and then the Ring of Coffins.  
There are a few filler blocks that are just cuts of fabric. 
 I also need to measure everything and size up or down to make sure it will all fit together but otherwise I am good. 
 I have checked the size on about half of the blocks so far.

Awe that sucks when you have a project that kind of takes it out of you. Great spider web, looks very cool.

That spiderweb block is awesome and I love your cats in your header!

Great blocks. Can't wait to see the complete top.

I love your spider web and hope that you get back in the mood to finish this one up. I had those same feelings making the cross-stitch Christmas stockings for my granddaughters. Thankfully, they are in the mail.
