This week, I ran across the sweetest pattern to paper piece. It is a Sunbonnet Sue pattern designed by the talented Jennifer Ofenstein of Sewhooked.com , for the blog hop , Something Wicked This Way Comes.
Jennifer created a Sunbonnet Sue , for Oct. 16, 2012 on the blog hop, and she is trick or treating!

So I went back onto the WhimsandFancies.com blog to look at all of the other Halloween patterns. I saw just what I was looking for ... on Oct. 11. Kimi, of Eat.geek.sew.com, designed some wickedly delicious candy patterns! A tootsie roll, smarties, lollipop, and candy corn! Bingo! I had my idea!

|My candy corn block - a 5 inch block. I just added more background white sashes to make it 10 inches|
|Notice inside her pumpkin pail, she has candy corn! (I saw this little touch in Jennifer's block, and couldn't resist putting in candy corn fabric in mine .)|
I decided to make a little 10 inch pillow with my 2 blocks. And since I used the white background, I wanted to Halloween-it up some with a ruffle..... black , with orange polka dots, of course!
I cut 3 inch x WOF strips , ironed them in half lengthwise, and baste stitched the raw edges . I was glad when I had them gathered... this is my least favorite part of making ruffles. (I am saving for a ruffle foot on my Topaz.)
