Isn't this cute? It's a great Halloween project to enjoy for years to come. Here are my instructions for working with this great preprinted panel called "Sew Scary" from Quilting Treasures. I knew as soon as I saw it in a shop that I had to have it.
- Make a decision: You can use all of the fabric and create nine flags that have preprinted fronts and backs OR use your own fabric for the backs and make a longer bunting or even two separate strands of nine flags each.
Cut apart all of the pieces leaving a 1/4" seam allowance. This includes the long skinny printed strips in the center of the panel.
- Make a decision: Pick which pieces will be fronts and backs and pair them up. I started with all of the more plain patterns for backs and then (reluctantly) added a few cute ones from the fronts pile to make them even. If you're using a different fabric for the backs, this isn't an issue.
Join the two long skinny strips end to end, matching the printed line, and trim the seam to 1/4". Press the seam open.
Fold in the end to close it up as you sew very close to the edge down the length of the strip. Fold in the last end as well and enjoy!
And finally, to continue with my month-long reveal of my Harry Potter "Project of Doom" quilt, here is block 3:
