Last year I made a witches hat for my daughter.  I had seen a couple made by gals in colorado when I was at the CQI retreat.  I started with a Simplicity pattern for a child's costume and just cut it a bit larger.  I am sure my daughter did not wear it but did have it on display with the Halloween books that we both made.

I decided to do another one for a friend and here are pics of the pieced hat and the completed one from last year.  It is a fun project to do.

Eek! I love it!! Your crazy quilting is always beautiful Freda, and this is no exception. I love the colours too; there is just something fun about black, orange and lime green.
Funny thing too, I had just pulled some fabrics to do a crazy-quilted Hallowe'en project but am thinking a witches hat might just be the thing. Thanks for the inspiration Freda!

What a fantastic hat.

I don't think a witch sporting that hat would be the least bit scary! Very cute.
