Spooktacular with Benartex
|Spooktacular Fabrics by Benartex|
BOO! Uh, I mean, welcome! Thanks for stopping by to see what I've got behind the curtain. Let's see what I've done with this fun collection of Halloween fabrics. Last month I shared about how to create hexagons. Today I share about making octagons into snowballs. I will be making the Snowball block to showcase these novelty prints.
I cut a variety of 6-1/2" squares from the other prints; but here you can see my placement of these orange print squares on the fussy cut HELL FIRE square from above. Sew on the diagonal line; trim away 1/4" as shown.

Then you need to press . . .

Some of the fabrics will use a black square . . .

|Happy spiders? Not the ones I find in my bathroom . . .|
|Bottles of spiders? Essence of witch? Yikes!|
So, what did I get? A happy, little Halloween quilt!
