In terms of removing the paper from EPP quilts you just rip them out - this is why flienks easiest! If seen in you have to snip the basting stitches then pull it yada yada - boring and hard work!

I love FPP my profile pic is about 60” square and all FPP but it does tend to use more fabric than applique.

I was going to suggest googling Harry Potter book shelf quilts for more free FPP patterns that might be suitable but maybe not 😂

I think its planning on being 48" x 60" ...

Those blocks will be 6 1/2" sq, and 6 1/2" x 9 1/2" (x 2) and 6 1/2" x 12 1/2".

Im a bit uncertain how to make the coffins ???  :S  so skipped that block and spent the weekend making these in its place ...
Can anyone out there give me some pointers?

They are fantastic - and you are so clever with the fabrics, especially for the potions!!!   :loveit:

BTW Your table runner was being greatly admired by our visitors yesterday!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Cut the petals with regular 1/4 inch seam allowances and stitch them together conventionally and press, then applique the 'flower' to the base fabric.  The EPP for the centre and the faces.

If you don't want to make the Dresden plate style then YouTube search Halloween Coffin Block - it brings up a tut, sorry no link.
