A Whit of work on Design Wall Monday

Have you seen the Another Year of Schnibbles on Pink Pincushion and A Quilting Life? This month they are doing the Little Bites pattern Whit which uses 2 1/2" squares. I decided I wanted to use some Halloween fabrics and here is what I have so far.

There are 60 different Halloween fabrics most of which I fussy cut... yes I am nuts...and I am soooo good at making a project as complicated as it possibly can be - LOL!

Here is a close-up of some of my favorites - bats and candy corn and spiders and spider webs and that mummy make me smile!

Now for this project I cut into my special Halloween fabric that I've been saving for a very special project ... I have about 4 yards of this spider web fabric on yellow and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

This fabric was a gift from my BFF Stephie and I've been thinking for over a year about how to best use it and I think I've come up with a plan. I like making these flying geese but not this small - the ones for Whit will finish 1" X 2".  I think flying geese that finish about 2 1/2" by 5" would be perfect... like these.

I have no business working on this project as I have several other projects that are half finished. Well, it will be in good company when it ends up in a plastic bin.

happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Those larger geese are perfect! Those Halloween eyeballs are a scream! Love this fabric, too. Where is it from?

  2. Love this!! But I have to admit, those spiders kinda creep me out!

  3. I like the larger pieces so you can see all the details in the fabric-just adorable!

  4. Oh how cute and oh what fun! Love it. I love fabrics like those too.

  5. Ohhhhh, myyyyy! gorgeous! As for me, I think I'm creatively blocked. maybe, feeling a bit cluttered! :o

    How did this happen?

  6. I love the fabric and colors! :0)

  7. I read Carrie's post about how she came to make those teensy flying geese--it was a self-challenge using the candy precuts (?charms?). Your biggie size makes more sense! Live the fussy cutting. Only YOU would have yellow spiderweb fabric, lol.

  8. This is awesome! I love the fussy cut pieces... well worth the effort and time!


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
