Ghastly Quilt Top Finished


You are all thinking that its not Halloween yet and I am jumping the gun a little.  Last week while cleaning out the stash pile (yes it turned into a pile rather then a organized mess) We found our Ghastlies, we finished one quilt last year that we totally forgot to blog about that.  It was made for Tanya's Sister and then started making the wonky picture blocs.  The strips of pink, green, and gray were also made last year.  I added the sashings around the blocks and made them wonky rather than square (I wanted them off kilter more then they were already) and then sewed the 5 strips together.  We have enough Ghastlies to make another top and most likely 3-5 wall hangings.  Our plan is to sell the quilts and keep one of the wall hangings.  One thing I find funny about the Ghastlies is no matter how I try to take pictures of them, they look blurry.  I don't know if its just too busy that the camera can't focus, but it looks so much better in person then it does in the picture.


I have of course still been working on the granny squares.  I think I have enough done now to make 2-3 more baby quilt tops.  I can't wait to get all of them done, they are so much fun.

Very cool, love the Ghastlies. Maybe they are upset that they were hidden away for so long so they won't allow their photo to be taken :)

Love it!

They're Ghastlies. It's like taking a picture of a ghost or bigfoot. If they don't want their picture taken, it just won't turn out.
