The next Spooky Blocks

I am making progress on my November 
Spooky Box challenge for the OMG. The pumpkins are made, the spiderwebs are spun, and this week I took a stab at making ghosts. Here are all the pieces cut and ready to sew 4 ghosts.

Here are the pieces laid out for ghost #1. I love the orange bats on black background fabric and was happy I had enough to make the eyes and nose (or is it a mouth?) for this ghost.
Fun sewing!!

Here are the little ghosties on the design wall. I was disappointed with the level of contrast with my grey background as the ghosts didn't show up well. But I went ahead and sewed on the border strips.

I think they look a little better, but while I was cutting the strips I realized that I had committed a quilt making sin. 
Guess which one?
If you guessed using a fabric that you weren't sure you had enough of, you are right!

Oh well, I am ready to make a plan B!

Linking up to Design Wall Monday

These are cute, and it looks like it has good contrast. For a Halloween quilt, the scare of running out of fabric is appropriate.

I ran across your blog from a post from the Elm Street Quilts blog. I was surprised to see the Scary Faces quilt you’re working on. I got the Spooky Box too and have just a few blocks made. Cute quilt, huh. I’ll be following your progress!

Very cute ghosts! Hopefully you can find a work around for the not enough fabric problem.

These are such fun blocks in this challenge.

Using a fabric you weren't sure you had enough is not a sin but a creative opportunity especially if you run out!! they are cute ghosts and I guess you are feeling better too since you are sewing again!! <3
