Other Halloween stuff

I found these pumpkin theme orphan blocks in the Guild Flea Market.  I think they might have been the leftovers from a BOM from a few years ago.  
I figured they might make some quick Halloween gifts.
I used 3 blocks to make this table runner for my daughter-in-law. She really enjoys decorating for all the seasons.  I almost always send her some kind of squishy package for Halloween
I used this fun Halloween fabric for the backing.
I showed the table runner to my daughter and she said she liked the blocks, tho' she did not want a table runner so I trimmed 2 of them down to potholder size and quick turned them for a Halloween surprise for her. 
I still have two left.  Maybe I will make some potholders for myself?!
I love working with orphan blocks,  It feels a little like cheating,  but hey,  I only have so many hours in the day for serious sewing why not get help where you can?  And these blocks were really so cute!
Happy Halloween!
Cheers, Claire W.


  1. My daughter loves decorating for Halloween too. She doesn't get it from me. I like the potholder idea. They turned out cute.

  2. Very cute! Nice as table runner and pot holders. That looks like the block I adapted for our BOM.
    I love your orphan block quilts, et al!

  3. A nice way to use your orphans. What batting did you use? And what backing?
