Halloween Hoppers Blog Hop

 Welcome to my favorite time of the year...

...that bewitching time, when all our childlike silliness comes to life.  This year I was excited to find, the perfect pattern for the "witchy" little quilter that I am!

This is "Trick or Treat Retreat" from Pearl Louise Designs.

It's been a year, hasn't it?  Retreats have been cancelled all over the world...
So, why not just sew up your own retreat, to ease the pain!
These silly little witches have this sewing thing down, too. 
Check out these quilt diva's!

Here's "Petal to the Metal"...full speed ahead!

"On Our Way"...looks a lot like me, all packed up for retreat!

"Pickup and Go"...oh don't we wish we could!

"Love Bug"...like 2 quilters could possibly go to a retreat with all their supplies
packed in a bug! hahahaha

"Flying Away"...my personnel favorite mode of transportation.

"Scootin' On"...this would be so much fun!

"Joy Riding"
I can't even lie, the first thing I thought of, was the Wizard of Oz.


"Happy Campers"...4 machines for 3 quilters. That sound about right!

"Speedin' On"...she must be from a golf course community!

"One Step at a Time"
...there are some retreats I only wish I had a wheelbarrow, 
to help me haul all my stuff to!

"Hot Rod"
When it's my time...I want a chair just like this!

Lastly "Haunted House" the perfect place for our Halloween Retreat!

My retreat quilt, was quilted with "Urban Elementz" "Sound Wave" pantograph. 
A fast and fun, super easy design that lets your appliques be the center of attention.

 HeatNBond®Lite makes those appliques a snap!

Pearl oh Pearl...did you know we would all be "retreat deprived this year?
The timing for this BOM couldn't have been better.
I can't tell you when I've had so much fun, working on a quilt!

You can find this complete BOM pattern at Annie's Craft Store

Now, if this isn't enough for you...

She has designed another "witchy" little quilt block, you won't want to miss.

Speaking of not wanting to miss out on the Halloween fun...
