    Oh, these are all so cute. I think I will join in. Not sure how many sets yet. I will try a few patterns. I just bought some really cute Halloween fabrics last week when our state had its shop hop.

    Here is the crazy patches at 6 1/2" square. I tried them next to a six and a half inch block and they look great for that fill in we all need.

    And ... the witches all finished with their stitching. I just need to press them and square the up to size. I might make them into a 9 1/2" block, not sure yet.

    They are all moda, rjr and the one patch with the witches is from the swapper in the UK. Makower UK?? I don't know how to spell it. LOL.. It is really nice fabric. Highly detailed and cute.

    OOoooOOOO LOVE Halloween! Is this the same swap as last year? Or a new hostess?? Everyone's blocks are beautiful and making me double check my schedule to see what kind of time I have.

    Hi IrelandDragonQ, Yes, this is the same kind of swap as last year! My daughter's big birthday is Halloween, so it's a big deal at our house. I thought I'd try my hand at being a hostess, something new for me! Hope to have lots of fun with everyone!

    Here a few samples. The Cat is 9 1/2 square, the Tree is 9 1/2 by 6 1/2 and the interlocked squares block is 6 1/2 square. If these are ok, then I will make sets of these. I also have more in mind. I may do 6 different sets.

    javin I love your spooky tree, & black cat the best! The interlocked squares would make a fun filler block.
    I'd say go for it.

    Oh my goodness! Everyone is doing such a nice job on their blocks! I say go for that set you have started too javin. They are really nice. Muse and sew, that is one great house and kitty too. THat cat is really only 3 1/2 " square? WOW!

    I have finished the spiders today. Well ... except for the borders. Thank goodness! I won't do that for a swap again, that is for sure! I am cutting out a set of eye of newt bottles now. LOL.... Do you think the bottle should be green or blue?

    Wow I just love all the blocks so far. Very cool... Looking for some fabric to do mine. I don't have purple and really need to use what is in my stash. I'm still looking and hopefully will join soon.

    Ok, great. I will do these 6 sets then. Put me down for those. I may do the minis, but I will finish the main blocks first. I just finished the interlock squares filler blocks, I switched up the colors and I like them better now. I will be switching up colors for some of the other blocks also. I need to go shopping for more fabrics. I just had small amount of some of these. Sew much fun!!!

    Javin22 I'll put you down then! So happy to have you join us.

    RedGarnet222 I like the green, but would be happy with either the blue or green.

    OK here is the green bottles of ghosts and poison. Had to half and half on them. I hope that is ok with you all.
    Then here is the last set I am doing ... bats flying.
