There are only two blocks left to hand quilt before I do the outside border, and return to all the blocks with more quilting. Both of these blocks were 'official' with the group. I have a template for the border that needs the marker to outline its pattern.
The Hallows Swap is named 'Something Old, Something New, Something Scary, Something Blue'. Also, it needed to be something worth at least $20. Again, I shopped from my closet first. This is actually more challenging than one thinks. Luckily, blue is opposite orange on the color wheel. This part will be cut again with the Lil Twister, and then gets a final border. I've got a Hallows stripe that has the green, orange, black and white colors in it that works so much better than the batik I bought. Should be interesting.
