Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

Wicked Beginnings!

Ahhhh....
We are here...
Our Favorite time of Year!!
 
It is the Season with the Reason
to be WICKED!

Sweet treats, scary fun,
Wickedly Talented Bloggers ...
Join us today as we begin
the Wicked Blog Hop ...

And, of course, why not start here
with me ... simple as can be! 

 
My finished Wicked banner.
 
Have you ever seen a super cool and
adorable panel and not known what
you should do with it?
Well, here's an idea for a quick project,
modify where ever you choose. 
This is how my banner started ...
as a panel ...
Scribble Monsters II panel, to be exact.
 
I think it's wickedly adorable!!
 
Panel deconstructed ...
almost sad if I didn't have plans
for piecing them back together!
 
Example of constructing one block,
adding additional fabrics and
triming certain pictures to fit
my blocks of 12 1/2 inches: 
 
After trimming and adding,
I pieced together for a 12 1/2 inch block: 
 
And .... tada!
 
Five individual 12 1/2 inch blocks:
 
 
 
 
I pieced the blocks together
to create a long banner,
added outside borders,
then the backing and batting,
and quilted.

 
And that is how you get a project
complete in a weekend ...
pieced, quilted and hanging.
 
Pretty darn Wicked Cool!
 
Thank you for visiting with me today ...
 
Please be sure to visit my fellow
bloggers today, as I'm sure they will
all have something deliciously
Wicked to share too.
