Welcome to WICKED day!
It's my day to share a wicked block with all the blog hoppers.
I loved the musical "Wicked" and so for the wicked blog hop, I wanted to make an Elphaba block. I saw the pattern called "If The Hat Fits" and tracked it down to the Buggy Barn. Their style of piecing blocks is really unique and I wanted to try it out.
I must admit...it was WICKED hard!
I thought I'd be showing you a whole quilt today, but I am delighted to have been able to finish one block in time for the hop!
Here is one of the blocks all cut out so you can see how many pieces are in a block.
I had to redraft the entire pattern to make it fit a 12" block size.
Here is my finished block/quilt!
I had a terrible time with the legs and boots. The pattern instructions are adorable 3D legs, but after a few hours of trying to make those, I gave up and just made some using machine applique. I think she's a perfect Elphaba and seems to have a bit of an attitude, don't you think!??!
If you want to try some of the patterns in this book, just leave a comment and your name will go into the draw to win the pattern book from Buggy Barn called Frightfully Crazy.
Here is the list of other WICKED blogs to visit today!

And here is one of my favorite songs that Elphaba sings in Wicked - enjoy listening while you hop around to the other Wicked blogs.
