The Halloween Quilt

Over the summer I decided to try and finish some UFOs and this is one of my oldest! I started it about 3 or 4 years ago. The stars are made from a bag of scraps I bought from a LQS. I bought the pumpkin fabric as yardage to go with it and the black was purchased at the FOQ. The blocks were all cut out but not all pieced - so now they're are all pieced and the first black sashing added to one side. As I have said before I do not have a design wall and use our lounge carpet which usually means that I get some 'help'!
With Gizmo's help I laid out the 20 blocks to try to decide the finished layout. It was then that I noticed the mistake in one of the blocks. Can you spot it? Clue - it is the block to the right of Gizmo's back paw!
Here are some close ups of the blocks.
I have now unpicked and redone the rogue block, cut out all the sashing and corner posts and am now ready to join all the blocks. Perhaps it will be done for Halloween 2008?
This is the only photo I am going to share from the Harrogate quilt show - it was from one of the challenges. The cats face is awesome - I want to learn how to do this technique so I can do all of my 4 cats faces.
