I decided to move on to picking out & cutting fabrics needed for the haunted house kit in preparation for retreat. I was able to pick out & make up most of the kits for the individual sections from my fabric stash & supplemented the rest from 'stash shopping' at Mary's (thank you Mary!). I arrived at retreat all ready to go. Mary & Amanda use a different method of paper piecing than I used on the fish called the Carol Doak method. After a quick lesson & some questions along the way, I found this method to be much more efficient.

I was able to complete the quilt top for the haunted house & was very happy with how it turned out - the shingle fabric that Mary had was perfect for the house. Next steps will be to finish removing the paper backing, quilt, bind, and maybe add some bling-y embellishments. But I am considering my goal for January a success!
