      (or just trim off the excess when squaring edges for binding).

  • SEWING
    Using 1/4 inch seams, and your favorite method for log cabin blocks (paper pieced or machine piecing) make

  • Assemble the Wall Hanging  as Follows:

    • Note: Assemble each row as shown, then join the rows. For simplicity, the two color log cabin blocks are shown as half square triangles to indicate placement and rotation to achieve the finished design.

  • Square Up: ...True up the edges of the pieced top and add borders.
     

  • Top & Bottom Borders: ...Measure the width across the center of the pieced top and cut two of the 
    3" border strips to that measurement. Using a 1/4" seam, attach these strips to the top and bottom, 
    easing the top if necessary to square up the top.
     

  • Side Borders: ...Measure the height of the pieced top and the two attached borders across the center 
    and cut the remaining two 3" border strips to that length. Using a 1/4" seam, attach these strips to the left
    and right, easing if necessary to square up the top.
     

  • Appliqué Faces: ...Draw your own face for the ghost and the pumpkin and cut from black fabric. 
    Appliqué into place with stitching or fusible web. Follow the same process for the pumpkin stem.
     

  • Binding: ...Sew (4) binding strips together into one long strip. Press width in half, wrong sides together.

  • Finishing Up:

    • Layer top, batting and backing and baste. 

    • Hand or machine quilt as desired. 

    • Trim and square up the edges for binding. 

    • Bind in standard fashion.

    • Whip stitch a pocket for hanging to the back if desired.

    • Embellish with spider web in upper corner and spider dangling from lower edge, or as you desire.

      You're done!
