WIP - HALLOWEEN FACE-OFF KWILT

I see on-line block swaps all the time.

A couple years ago 12 excited Halloween quilters in my local guild
decided to do this Happy Halloween pattern 
by Amy Butler, as a swap.
Each of us were assigned a block, made 12 of our block
and swapped them out. 



 BUT before I go any further....I have a confession!
 My block was the "bat" and my good friend, Linda, offered to help me with mine.  
I cut them out...she stitched them on herembroidery machine.  
I made her a purse in return for the help!

Here is what "FACES" me!



Add some additional fabrics from my stash


and I'll turn this into a  Wonky Halloween "FACE - OFF" kwilt!
A fresh, modern "twist" on a traditional idea!

If I don't get it done this year...
it will definitely "creep me out"!

Are you making any Halloween projects?
