Today's MM block is a really fun spooky one, and it's so perfect since I'm making my Modern Monday sampler in Hallowe'en colours, but it's applique (sez I, in a rather timid and whiny tone) and I am seriously applique challenged. You have no idea how pathetic my applique skills truly are. I printed out the applique pattern and stared at it for quite a long time. Sigh. Now I will definitely have to learn how to applique, if only to make that block. I'm going to try going it on my own. Yeah...well... we shall see how that works out for me. In the mean time, inspired by Jenifer's block and the eeriness of the day, I've made two blocks of a Hallowe'en theme using up some of the fast growing pile of itty bitty scraps in my project box.

I have some borders to cut out and attach on my Shady Lanes quilt. That seems like a good way to avoid the applique attempt for a while.
