Peek-a-Who?

Hi Fellow Quilters,

Welcome to the “Peek-a-Who?” blog hop, hosted by our friend Marian at “Seams to Be Sew”!  Thank you so much, Marian, for organizing this fun blog hop.  We can hardly wait to see all of the creepy, spooky, and eerie projects that everyone has created! 

Here’s some creepy music, to get you into a Halloween mood!

You might recall seeing our new “Trick or Treat 2018” wall quilt from our “Halloween Spooktacular” post.  Isn’t it super fun!  Susan did a great job making this model, and I confess that I was a bit jealous.  These little critters are SO much fun, and I really wanted to make a couple of them.  So, I’m calling “dibs” on the 2019 Trick or Treat quilt.

That’s why I’ve been really excited about this blog hop- a good excuse to make my two favorite Halloween critters!  Of course, the hardest part was choosing only two favorites but I only had time to sew two of them!  I made some mug rugs, one for my desk at school (on the right) and a second one for my beverage during family game night (on the left).  I really love the lightning-bolt fabric that I used for the background on these blocks, as it seemed like the perfect choice for Frankenstein’s Taz and a mad scientist owl.

My Frankenstein monster looks so “ferocious”, all dressed up for Halloween!  I decided to give him a formal suit, so he could (maybe) dance to “Puttin’ on the Ritz”.  I may make mug rugs for my husband and son to use on game night, but they will need to let me win a few games first!  Frankenstein's Monster by Ms P Designs USA

And here’s my mad scientist owl, whoooo sits on the desk next to my computer at school.  I’m a science teacher, so that’s why I just HAD to make him!  It is hard to see in the picture here, but his hair is glowing purple and blue because he hasn’t been as careful as he should be with the hazardous materials in the lab.  I guess that’s why he’s called a “mad” scientist- no sensible scientist would ever risk radioactive contamination!

  1. How cute those are! That is the best Halloween background I’ve seen anywhere. We don’t have many Halloween traditions now, but we used to always watch Young Frankenstein while we waited for trick-or-treaters. My father-in-law always asked a question of each child, and they had to answer or do a trick to get a treat!

    1. Thank you for visiting our blog! Young Frankenstein is one of our favorites too! I don’t think that there is a person in our family who doesn’t know all of the lines in the movie and can’t sing “Puttin’ on the Ritz” like Frakenstein’s monster!

      Happy Quilting! Susan

  2. Cute critters! One year I made a costumes for my son and his best friend for trick or treat. My son was a hammer and his friend was a nail. They had lots of fun with that.

    1. Lisa Marie, that’s great! A hammer and nail are truly creative costumes. One year my son was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. He actually pulled it off but removed the wig when someone thought he was a “chick”.

      Happy Halloween and happy quilting! Susan

  3. Good Morning! I think your Frankenstein monster looks like he has a friendly face, so while he might be trying to scare someone most wouldn’t take he seriously. That’s a good thing in my book! These are so fun! ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. I absolutely LOVE your owl. Thank you for sharing.
    My favorite Halloween costume would have to be a spider for the little one. It is SO cute – as he moves his arms, all 8 “legs” move together.

    1. Thank you for visiting, Ronelle! We don’t get any trick or treaters at our house, so I miss seeing adorable kids dressed in all types of costumes. I especially love the princesses.

      Happy quilting, Susan

    1. Hi Renea, thanks for visiting our blog! I just had to listen and watch the video/song again this morning just because! The “monsters” in the old horror movies were so poorly done that it is pretty humorous!

      Happy quilting, Susan

  6. Your choice of which creatures to turn into mug rugs is perfect. Those creatures are adorable.

    I used to do a huge Halloween display taking up the entire front yard but we are downsizing so I sold most of my items at a large Halloween-only garage sale last year. I made sure to keep some special items and my scaled down version is still larger than most. I even give away full-sized chocolate bars! and have treats for the dogs. I also dress up to answer the door – as a witch or a black cat. One year I was Rudolph. This is my favourite time of year.

  8. Trick-or-treating is my favorite tradition, but I miss it now that my children are grown. We haven’t even had any at our house for a few years. My favorite costume: a Christmas tree, with green tulle and battery-operated lights!

  9. These days our Halloween tradition is handing out goodies and getting “frightened” by all the kids in costumes. I like your Frankenstein Monster & Mad Scientist Owl.

  10. It’s always so much fun to visit you. Your patterns are such a delight. There is no way, I could ever choose a favorite…or even narrow things down to just 2. LOL!! It shows just how much fun you have designing!

  11. All my kids are grown, as well as most kids in the “hood”, so not much going on here. Now, the only tradition is to go to my friend’s house to help her put up decorations and prepare food for her annual Granny Campout with the 14 grandkids. They pitch tents in the back yard, roast hot dogs, marshmallows, tell stories, and do a scavenger hunt.(The kids had so much fun the first year, that, now, the parents pitch tents and stay over as well.) It is usually around Halloween, so it always has that theme, but held on a weekend, of course.

  12. Your designs are so cute, too cute to be scary! No traditions….favorite costume I remember was from a party hubby and I attended years ago and a couple had dressed as Mr & Mrs Potato Head. Costumes were made from old burlap bags and were hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Your Halloween quilt is so very cute. I love to dress up and sit outside and wait for trick or treaters. I make up bags to hand out of candy and toys. My husband makes me hot cocoa and my yard has a ton of decorations. My husbands birthday is Oct 30 and we love Halloween.

  15. We live out in the country, and are at the end of a long, dark driveway on a gravel road, so we don’t get any trick or treaters. My favorite Halloween memory is of my aunt, who dressed up as a witch one year when we were young. She even painted her face and had a fake mole on her fake pointy nose. She looked amazing, and now that I’m an adult I know how much work went into it and I appreciate it even more. I know I don’t have the energy she had, to do so much work for one night’s delight for her nieces and nephews. She was an amazing aunt who left behind so many happy memories.
