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!
Kathy's Quilts (that's me!)
And here is one of my favorite songs that Elphaba sings in Wicked - enjoy listening while you hop around to the other Wicked blogs.
I love her - a witch with attitude for sure! Thank you for sharing - and loved the song.
She's very, very wicked--love her!
Wow, I've never seen anything pieced like that. It is wicked, but makes a very cute witch!
Your version looks fabulous! Thanks for your hard work to show her to us today! Thanks also for participating in the blog hop & inspiring me! I'm following!
This really made me laugh. Love her!!!
Funny block :))
I love her! Attitude from a witch suites her. Thanks for sharing your witch. Judith, Texas

Love it, and it looks so hard to piece together... I would have taken a short cut and do all foundation paper piecing :)
That is a proper, wicked witch! I am going to see Wicked on November 10th (with my sister and my god chick). I can't wait and hope that I will like it as much as you did!
I might've been hard, but you did real wicked good. Love how it turned out!!
Kathy,wonderful project. Very wicked. Thank you for sharing today.I have always wanted to try that project. please put me in the draw. Are those mason jars with fabric in the background?
I took my daughter t see Wicked for her 21st birthday (seven years ago - talk about scary) and we loved it.
Thanks for sharing.
Awesome block kathy!! Looks difficult but turns out wonderful! great job! thanks for the draw!
I love your patterns.It`s just wonderful.Thanks for sharing!
She is sooooo cute flying away on her broom. Why is it that some days things just give us fits. Your applique legs are just perfect!
With all those crazy shaped pieces that block does look hard. Cute when it's done though! Thanks for sharing.
Love Buggy Barn...but haven't tried anything from that book yet...looks like fun!
Whoa! So cool your work here. Great block and redrafting... see there you go again with that talent. Love the perfect colors for attitude.
Your witch is too cute!!
Your witch looks like she is on a mission!

I've only got one block accomplished with my If the Broom Fits too! It's the second Buggy Barn I've worked on, and you're right, it's crazy hard! Thank you for posting the Wicked video!
Fabulous! although I must admit I've never heard of Elphaba!

Love your little witch! Great pattern from Buggy Barn.
wickedly cute block
I love the buggy barn quilts but i think they are harder to make too. several of my friends have made the witch one and I just love it. I like your idea of the applique legs also. It turned out so cute.
That reminds me of Halloween crafts we did in elementary school - Ijust love it! Thanks for the music - that's one of my favorites too!
Your little witch is so cute! Yes, an attitude for sure!
Loved the music! Thank you!
That is a cute block. I like the legs on yours, but I can imagine the 3-D leggs must really make it funny!
Lovely block and, yes, that cutting looks a bit intense,but fun! Thanks for hosting, I really enjoyed seeing your minis in the previous post. email@example.com
Great little quilt. You certainly persevered through the obstacles and ended up with a delightfully wicked result.
I think you turned out quite wicked! You did a nice job.
Gorgeously wicked block. I love the witch and thanks for an opportunity on a great draw. I would love to check out the book.
It was fun listening to that song again. You have a great witch.. and you hit it right on the nail for me...It is plain Craziness around here lately. Thank you for sharing.
What a wicked block you have! Thanks for the giveaway and for participating in the Wicked hop! I also love the quilt on your header!
Great Elphaba block - Defying Gravity is the best!
Hi!!! Love her!!! Very wicked!!! Thanks for the fun!!
Your block is wicked! Thanks for the giveaway.
I think your block is adorable thanks for sharing your thoughts about it.
Love your version of Elphaba! Love Wicked!! Thank you for a chance to win, that book is on my wish list ;-D!
It really reminds me of that witch from the wizard of oz! How funny is it that a quick look at a picture can bring that right into your mind.. Great work!
Buggy Barn patterns are SO much fun to make!
Cute witch, love her legs! Thank you for sharing.
Your block came out wicked cute. A friend of mine came back from a trip to New York raving about Wicked. It is now on my bucket list!
I love her. What a great job you did. Too bad the pattern wasn't a tad easier, would like to see what else you could whip up to go with her. Thanks so much for sharing.
Your blocks is adorable.
What a cute block, and I just love those socks! I've never seen that Buggy Barn book before. Looks there are some interesting projects in it. Your project is really wicked!
Wicked little witch...love the socks, too!
What a great block...love it!! TFS
love your "legs"
wicked work thanks for sharing!
You sure did a nice job of putting this together. Would be interesting to see the finished quilt. Are you going to keep her green, or different colours for added interest? thanks for sharing.
I love her -- it's not easy being a witch!
Nice block! I love it!
Greetings from Germany

Rosemary B here:
this is the cutest block ever
I love it so much. Oh my goodness
Thank you so much for sharing your creativity
Too cute! Thanks for sharing with us :o)
Thanks for the link to the Defying Gravity song. It is a great musical, isn't it? And your Elphaba block is darling.
Elphaba is very well done. Great job. Enjoy your halloween.
I've never seen "Wicked". It only plays in Big Towns not close to me. I've heard a few of the songs though and really want to go someday! Cute green witch you made. Are you giving the pattern away because you don't want to brave anymore of the Frightful patterns? The Buggy Barn gals make it look so easy.
That is one wicked green witch - methinks she drank too much of her own brew from the caldron. Thanks for the giveaway and sharing all these cute projects.
Very cute witch...does look hard to make! Thanks for sharing!
Your witch is so cute and I love the 3D effect with the legs.
Thank you for sharing :)
Wow, your Elphaba block does look complicated but you did a grand job and she looks wicked. 3D? Who cares; your witch boots look adorable.
That looks crazy hard! I love the one you made though. That's also my favorite. Have you heard the Glee version? I love it too, maybe even more than the original!
So wickedly cute! A witch with attitude!
So witchy wonderful. Great cute pattern. Thanks for the chance to win.
Kathy, your witch is hilarious...luv her riding her broom. I've never made a Buggy Barn quilt....I heard they are different and hard. Some day I would like to give it a try. Thanks for sharing in the fun and wicked hop!!
Oh yeah, pick me, Pick me!!!! Love your witch and what an attitude. Especially with her nose profile, that's too wicked for sure. Jane
Love the blocks. The short witch with the big legs is very cute. I would love to go in the draw for the give away.
Great witch and thank you for the music.
That looks wickedly hard, but she is a very cute witch!!! Nice work.
What a fun block!
I think that your wicked witch turned out quite well! Thanks for sharing!!
Great job. Her attitude shows through!
Has no one said, It makes me so happy I could melt!?
Thank you for sharing your fun pattern today!
Love her! The attitude shines through, 3D legs or not! Thanks for sharing her with us, and for the chance to win.
Love her! That black background is just perfect, too.
Great block. And thanks for sharing the video. I get to see the show in a few weeks with my 3 sisters, I can't wait, and now I'm even more excited.
Great block, she really does have attitude!
Thanks for sharing your wicked block! Buggy Barn patterns are so much fun! Whimsical, I'd say.
Oh your block looks great!! I love it!!!
OMG that a beautiful block you made !! Love the witch on her broom.
Thanks for the wonderful give away.
She's wickedly wonderful! Love her.
Wicked hard, huh? I guess I could try one wicked hard block, not sure I have the stamina for multiples. Thanks for the chance to win and try!
Great witch block! Thanks for sharing!!
Such a cute quilt. That is truly wicked of you to quilt and drive!
She's a wicked wonder! I'd like to win that pattern.
LOL!! Oh Kathy -- I love it! I'm sorry her boots/feet gave you a tough time, but you'd never know too look at them! The block is wonderful -- great job! And great selection from Wicked, too!! :)
Love the block, and I love Buggy Barn Style. It is not for the person who needs instant gratification. Thanks for the offering.
